The shooting death of the park officer was a tragedy, but does anyone really believe that a no-gun policy would have prevented the shooting? The shooter may not even have been aware of (or interested in) the new federal policy regarding guns in national parks. Unfortunately, sociopaths are not concerned with the legal ramifications of their acts.

He blew right past a tire chain checkpoint but I am sure had weapons been illegal on the park he would have obeyed that law. What idiots on the antigun side.

How would a prohibition on concealed carry in National Parks have prevented him from using a shotgun like he did?

As we both know there is NO LAW that stops a criminal from carrying and using a gun. Laws only serve to control people that would obey them to begin with.

The criminals are not afraid of the law. A good strong rope in a tree..... that's another story ! We need more of the later.
