    NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.
    -J.R.R. Tolkien

    Done, still behind but we should catch up....

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    yeah we all know crime can't happen in a park right
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    OMG everyone is going to be toting their loaded shotguns and army rifles all around the little parky-poo scaring all the women and children! All the animals will be slaughtered by the war-mongering right wing extremists who believe in the Constitution. No one is going to be comfortable sitting around the campfire makin' s'mores 'cause Earl and his 2 brothers named Daryl might be carrying a gun! How will anyone ever enjoy camping out and sleeping under the stars ever again, they'll be awake all night waiting for the massacres to begin!

    Damn what a slanted article. They must think we distribute concealed carry permits with every pair of baggy pants sold out of the trunk of a cadillac in alleys across the country. I'm amazed people this ignorant can construct a sentence let alone remember to breathe.

    "It was a zone dedicated to the preservation of nature," Brinkley told AOL
    News. "In the same way that you don't carry a gun to an airport, there are places where you don't carry a gun in this country, and a national park is one."
    I carry to DIA and in DIA when I'm not flying and picking up/dropping off people each and every time I go there. As long as I don't go past the security, I'm golden.

    As for carrying in parks, I'm all for it. The ban on guns back in Roosevelt's time, in my opinion, was not intended to protect visitors from each other but to protect the animals and environment.
