    national park carry...eh??

    has there been any more news on possible carry in national parks?

    a plan is in place for a greater amount of my family to be in yellowstone ecosystem last part of July. Most of family are CCW licence holder.

    Other wise weapons will be secured upon park threshold crossing.

    I heard that the bill to allow CCW in National Parks died in committee.

    That's one reason I won't set foot in any national park. The crime rates there are in excess of some major cities. No more Yogi & Boo-Boo! Ranger Rick carries an AR-15 and gets to actually use it!

    Same here. I won't go to a National Park, since I can't carry. Living in Texas, I would love to go down to Big Bend National Park, but since it is on the Mexican border and I can’t carry I won’t go near it.

    Likewise, same here. I live 30 minutes away from Glacier National Park, one of the most beautiful spots on the planet (I'm not biased, really). I refuse to go there unarmed.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    Outstanding! I'm going 4 wheeling in a national forest this weekend and would like to carry without legal problems.

    Not the same. The difference is in the management entity.

    National Parks are managed by the National Park Service, part of the U.S. Dep't of the Interior.

    National Forests are managed by the U.S. Forest Service, part of the U.S. Dep't of Agriculture.

    BTW, national park and national forest lands belong to us, the American people. We own these lands. The appropriate government agencies manage and administer these lands for the people, for the public good.

    It's much like hiring a property management company to look after your rental or investment properties.

    There is no need for guns in National Parks, the Park service says all we need is to make noise and carry pepper spray...

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,275141,00.html

    YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — A park visitor was attacked by a grizzly bear Wednesday and hiked miles to safety with severe facial injuries, park officials said.

    The man, in his late 50s, was taking photographs of bears when he was attacked, according to a statement from the park. He told rangers he had been attacked by a sow with a cub.

    After the attack, he hiked two to three miles and was discovered by other park visitors around 1 p.m., the statement said. He was hospitalized, but officials declined to release his condition Wednesday evening.

    "I was told that the injuries to his face were severe," Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said, adding that the injuries were the type that result from clawing.

    Park officials will investigate the attack, Nash said.

    Grizzly bears and black bears, including sows with cubs, are active in the spring, Park Service officials said. Park visitors are encouraged to travel in groups, make noise and carry pepper spray.

    No human injuries from bears were reported in Yellowstone last year, and only eight minor injuries have been reported since 2000, the Park Service reports. The last bear-caused human fatality in the park was in 1986.

    So far Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) has forgotten his campaign promise to reintroduce his predecessor's bill. I'm sure it's just an oversight, after all, he's got 6 years to do it.
