Since hunting is not allowed in national parks, why on earth would anybody want or need to take a gun into one, unless it was to shoot at people?
Of course, using the insane, circular logic of the confirmed gun lover, the law allowing firearms into national parks now makes perfect sense. After all, we must protect ourselves from the possibility of another gun-toting lunatic deciding it’s a lovely day for target practice in the Longmire parking lot.
Because any average John Wayne wannabe packing heat could have easily taken out the guy who shot that ranger, of course – even though Ranger Margaret Anderson, a professional law enforcement officer trained in the use of firearms, obviously and tragically couldn’t.
Having won every battle, no matter how questionable, does the NRA now have nothing better to do than show off its clout by forcing politicians to indulge any crazy whim that might pop into its head?
