Discussion Topic: Should We Be Able to Pack Against Park Animals?

United States Representative Ron Paul has introduced a bill that I hope gets some traction. HR1897 would restore our ability to carry firearms in the National Parks for our defense. How important is this? Every year we hear some terrible story of someone getting mauled or killed by wild animals on Federally owned land - land that we are encouraged to visit and pay for, but where we are forbidden the ability to defend ourselves. This, to me, is insane.

Is it insane to you, too?
