Well, that's just the facts. I think it was a compromise because for a long time firearms were absolutely illegal in national parks (and wilderness areas and in wild and scenic river corridors). With the advent of concealed carry in many states there was a push to make carrying in national parks legal (and consistent with state law). Hopefully the current administration has bigger fish to fry and won't re-examine the current law.Not disagreeing, just pointing out it seems silly to have to leave it in car, (technically it's illegal in the parking lot of a federal building, but it's rather safe from unwarranted search) when it's legal everywhere else in the park.
And realistically would say alot of vacationers travel armed, know from talking to other RV'ers alot of them do.
Everyone should try very hard not to become the new test case.
