Going to a national park...you can now start packing...

Starting today (Feb 22nd) it is now legal to pack a firearm in a National Park as long as all other pertinent rules concerning the lawful ownership and possession of a firearm and/or CCW are followed.

Good story on it over at Buckeye Firearms Association (aren't there always though?).

As for all of the Toby Hoopers of the world who think that this will lead to mass shootings in National Parks....well the data to show that CCW holders are more of a risk to society than any other sector of the population just doesn't pan out.....you keep exercising you 1st Amendment right to spout bull and I will continue to exercise my 2nd.

Come to think of it, we have a little national park up by the People's Socialist Republic of Cuyahoga, I think maybe I'll take a little trip once it warms up with a .40 caliber friend of mine in your honor Mr. Hooper...

Cuyahoga Valley National Park Laws and Policies (Please refer to any pertinent laws and regulation before carrying in any National Park, as I will when I take my little trip.)
