Park patrons should follow existing gun laws
Some people believe you'll be taking your life in your hands if you head into most of America's national parks and monuments ... . That's because a new law takes effect ... that allows licensed gun owners to carry firearms into parks and monuments if state law allows it.

Who are these "Some people"? let them show themselves...IF they exist.
No one has any more to be concerned about now inside a national park than they do outside the gate.
Actually, everybody will be safer inside now.
Let this pendulum keep swinging in the right direction.

We (I) have been carrying concealed handguns in Texas State Parks for many years and no incidents have occurred that I am aware.
National Parks will experience the same safe & lawful carry that exist in State Parks.
But now the poor criminal who wanted free access to murder within our National Parks will be inconvenienced or possibly killed if such attempts are made among "carriers". The Federal Government have been 100% responsible for the many murders committed within National Parks because of the denial of personal rights to self-defense.
If we could talk to the many who have been murdered within our National Parks, I wounder how they would feel today about permitting legal concealed carry within National Parks. I really think they would give 100% approval to the new policy.
As for me, I think every life is very special and each law-abiding person should have the ability to preserve that life using what ever means necessary.
Even Jesus' Disciples exercised self-defensive measures by carrying swords. No, the swords were not for opening up a can of beans as cans did not exist at that time.
