National Parks Traveler
I need to say it: THIS IS INSANE. Why anyone should be allowed to tote a handgun, much bring it, concealed, into a national park, is beyond my comprehension.
The conjunction of old law written for a very different society (we don't do "well regulated militias" anymore, boys) with blustering machismo that makes gun flaunting a sacred right of true Amurrican patriots is bullshit.
And so are the politicians, including our excellent President, who cowtow to the wannabee cowboys and mountain men.
I get the politics. Gotta quiet all the terrified gun nuts who think the Black guy is going to take their pride and joy.
Nonetheless, aside from a very few, very rural holdouts, nobody in this country needs or should be allowed a gun. (No, that firearm is not really your dick -- though I think a lot of you should be relieved of that too.)
