26. This has been predicted before...
When concealed carry laws were liberalized across the country, there were loud proclamations by anti-gunners that it would lead to blood in the streets, shootings over parking spaces, etc. None of these fears have materialized so far, and statistics in many states show that CCW permit holders have even lower arrest and criminal conviction rates than police.

Mass shooters and murderous criminals carry out their actions with no regard to gun control laws; most of the recent mass shootings have occurred in "gun-free" zones like schools. If someone wants to commit a gun crime in a national park, there is absolutely nothing stopping them. All the new rule does is allow self-defense by the law-abiding. If you think otherwise, feel free to post some data that connects concealed carry with increased gun crime.
