    This kind of alarmist hyperbole makes me want to barf.

    It just occurred to me that you must have never been to Mt. Rushmore or Custer State Park during Sturgis Rally.

    I promise no gun ban ever stopped all those biker gangs felons from carrying.

    See the only thin this law changed is that now the law abiding citizens can also pack heat.

    Actually, there are several:
    • self defense against animals
    • self defense against people
    • survival

    Better question... why should anyone otherwise legally able to do so NOT be able to carry in a national park?

    I assume you favor a right to carry at public events as well....including political conventions and presidential speaking events? Isn't it true that your "constitutional right" should have no limits?

    Because you can't shoot the animals, you can't target shoot, and you should not be shooting the other visitors. So, in the eyes of the park rangers, you are a potential security threat.

    In other words... all of the same reaons you have for having a gun anywhere else. Why should a national park be any different? Does crossing into a national park suddenly remove any and every threat you might face?
