    Not in every state.

    See post #26.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    US Code is pretty clear.
    All Federal property, whether it's the Great Outdoors or a drab office building that looks like it immigrated from the old Soviet block, is open to the general public, armed or not, unless specifically spelled out in the US Code, agency regulations or site-specific regulations. Weapons are usually included in a mile-long list of prohibited items and actions posted at every public entrance.
    For the trunk of the regulations tree, go to TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 44 > § 930.
    Law without force is impotent.

Five years ago, we had a 7'11", 200 lbs cat come up in the middle of us. He now makes a fine rug in my house.
    That is true here in Colorado as well. A lot more predatory behavior is exhibited by mountain lions than bears. I'm not sure having a firearm helps much, either. They are very sneaky and typically approach from behind. We've had several non-fatal incidents in the area in the past few years.

    I do a lot of long distance backpacking and it's hard to justify carrying a gun that is large enough to be of any use - my Python is equal in weight to a couple days food so I usually don't take it.

    A child was stolen from a tent and killed by a predatory bear in Utah this past summer. That's a very rare event which might have been prevented if the family had all been together in one tent. Bears eat newborn fawns in the spring and a child is a fawn sized human. Still, when you consider the multitudes of folks that go into the woods every year, it's probably a lot safer than driving a car.
