    Re: New rules ease ban on guns in national parks

    "This regulation will put visitors, employees and precious resources of the National Park System at risk. We will do everything possible to overturn it and return to a commonsense approach to guns in national parks that has been working for decades," Wade said.
    Yea, all the gun crazed lunitics that run amuck in the cities are gonna take the "L" or the bus out to the park and start shooting all the visitors, employees and precious resources.

    Gimme a break.

    Re: New rules ease ban on guns in national parks

    isn't the point of a national part to preserve the environment?
    therefore, meaning no hunting?
    Other than hunting, I can't see a reason to bring a gun with you to a national park, unless of course your plax and wear 100K in diamonds, then by all means take an unregistered gun, but thats besides the point.

    don't get me wrong, i don't have a problem with hunting, but there are other places other than national parks to do it.
    The only people that should have guns there are park rangers.
    (for if there's a bear attack or something)

    I think it is more along the lines of protection.
    Been to a few parks and camped were I was definately not on the top of the food chain my friend.

    Do you think bears only attack park rangers?

    Re: New rules ease ban on guns in national parks

    as have I, but usually, as long as your not dumb, they don't bother you, that includes leaving food out.
    I've had a bear come right up to my campsite once, i stayed in my tent, and had enough sense not to make noise or keep food in my tent, and it just wandered away.
    I bet you more people would get killed by shooting a bear, than jsut leaving it alone, since i bet the head would be a main target for most inexperienced shooters.
    If they didn't have a high powered gun, shooting a bear in the skull won't always kill it, it will just piss it off and make it try to maul you.

    no, i was getting at they would have them to respond to problems.

    generally, a bear will leave you alone, as long as you don't piss it off.
    the reason bears attack (usually) is because people are dumb and provoke it.
    those same dumb people have no business carrying a gun.

    Generally, a bear, like any animal, is very curious and will snoop about and stick its sniffer in just about anything (including a tent) as long as it isn't scared, startled or alerted.

    Additionally, a bear, also hunts/eats/roams about at night when the campers are sleeping and the park rangers are holed up in their little ranger shacks (if any of them are even working at all).

    I know what a bear is like.
    I can walk out my backdoor and there's a big forest full of them.
    I know i've been sleeping, and there's been bears in my campsite and never bothered me, because i keep quiet.
    I've been awake and there's beena bear in my campsite, and it still hasn't bothered me.
    Generally when bears are about, they are looking for food.
    They'll poke around the firepit usually, since that usually smells like food.
    and they'll poke around by wherever you eat (which is why you should never eat in your tent).
    As long as you keep your food in your car or trailor(if you have one)
    they'll generally just go away.
    I know, I live in a rural part of a city in Northwestern Ontario, which is bear central.
