159. People get shot in national parks right now.
As a matter of fact, Park Rangers have one of the highest mortality rates of any law enforcement service, due to policing large tracts of land which are disproportionately used by drugrunners. So how is letting law-abiding people carry a gun in a national park a threat to you, when it's done under the same circumstances that let someone carry a gun in a regular park, a supermarket, or a carwash?

This is random fearmongering, based on the assumption that people are barely restrained animals just waiting to do evil things to you and your family, the same crazy crap the right wing uses to justify the drug war and all their other attempts to regulate the lives of people they have no business trying to control.
