More Guns, More Guns


Because you know nothing is better with our national parks than gun toting jackassery.

The Bush administration formally proposed Wednesday to scrap a longtime ban against bringing loaded weapons into national parks and wildlife areas.

Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne announced the beginning of a 60-day public comment period on the proposed update to the nation's gun regulations.

Under the plan, an individual could carry a concealed weapon in national parks and wildlife refuges if he or she is authorized to do so on similar state lands in the state where the national park or refuge is located.

I guess its an improvement over the Republican idea to drill the national parks for oil. But not much of one.
