Guns & Parks: A bad combo
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER EDITORIAL BOARD
The national parks are a place for recreation, reflection and conservation of America's wondrous natural resources. That's apparently not enough reason for some to maintain the peaceful, safe tradition of keeping ready-to-fire guns out of the parks.
Thanks largely to letters from 51 U.S. senators, Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne is looking at overturning national tradition with new rules to cater to the gun interests. The National Rifle Association has been working on the issue for five years.
Kempthorne said the new regulations will be proposed to replace the current rule that requires weapons in national parks to generally be unloaded and locked away or inoperable. In the letters, the 51 senators (44 Republicans and seven Democrats) talked of aligning park rules with state laws. Citizens with state concealed-weapons permits would be able to carry loaded guns in national parks.
This flies in the face of the parks' relative safety and the need to prevent poaching. But it fits the scared-of-everything mentality.
A recent guest column singled out U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks for criticism as one of two lawmakers threatening to block Kempthorne from changing the rules. Well done, Rep. Dicks. Block on, sir, if that proves necessary to prevent the radical overturning of America's tradition of weapons-free sharing of the parks.

Yes the P.I. is a flip flop paper. During WW2 the P.I. always had a "Support the NRA" banner on top of the front page. Now they are blantant anti Gun.

Guns are already there, in the hands of criminals only (of course). That's what makes no sense.

Never has been weapons-free. Victims have simply been the only ones disarmed. It's high time this naive and ineffectual practice is reversed.

Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

How does disarming

And that's all the proposed rule change will do; it will not allow every Tom, Dick and Harry to carry loaded firearms in the National Parks.
Citizens with state concealed-weapons permits would be able to carry loaded guns in national parks.
The media weenies and the and the Association of Retired Park Ranger whiners conveniently ignore this simple fact because it doesn't fit their agendas.
BTW, 4 more U.S. Senators (3 GOP and 1 Dem) have signed on in support of this, for a total of 55.

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.

I am sure that those people who have been attacked and/or killed by human "predators" felt they were in the middle of recreation, reflection and worried about their own conservation. This move will even the playing field.
