    National Park Carry...Administratively DEAD

    http://www.vcdl.org/pdf/NPS_Denial_of_VCDL_PRM.pdf

    Sorry couldn't copy into this post. Please hit the link. This is a letter to Philip Van Cleave, President of the Virginia Citizen's Defense League, saying that the National Park Service will not change it's policy on concealed weapons. Bear in mind that several pro-gun organizations carried the flag on this, as well as Virginia Senator George Allen (defeated, proposed a bill to fix this) and his successor (Jim Webb, promised to resubmit the bill).

    Please contact your representatives and Senator Jim Webb, asking them to support this measure.

    he said "right to carry laws do not make a place safer" In Iraq, that is correct. Here in America, he is wrong 48 times.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    Aside from the principle of the thing, this is practically speaking very frustrating, as my wife and I are driving across country planning to visit several national parks later this year...have to admit I was hoping it would get passed by then...

    I'm planning a backpacking trip over the summer. I had automatically excluded the National Parks because of this. Instead, I will be hiking Utah and Arizona.

    The more remote the park, the less of the urban crack-head crowd, but, thank you just the same, I would feel a whole lot safer with a concealed weapon than without. The parks are huge, rangers few and far between, and law enforcement is only one of their duties.

    As far as protection from wild animals, bison and bears do get a few people each year. Mind your manners, follow the rules, and keep your distance. Most of the problems are the result of people doing stupid things. In the back counrty, unavoidable bear problems are best solved with pepper spray. No handgun will stop a bear quickly enough to save your butt.
