As reported, the Obama administration has declined to appeal a federal court ruling that prohibits carrying loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges. This means that the national park concealed carry rights granted a few months ago are gone for good. Criminals will, of course, continue to carry guns in the national parks, while their victims will be unarmed and defenseless.
This really doesn’t surprise me, given Obama’s anti gun record, and the many warnings issued during the election by Illinois gun rights supporters who knew Obama all too well. This latest anti gun rights action on Obama’s part, coupled with other more surprising anti-freedom actions, really disappoint me…
Getting back to the substantive issue: Anti gun individuals like to assert that concealed carry is not needed in national parks, and that it is a danger to wildlife. My response to those unfounded contentions can be seen here and here.
