What has to be the most asinine lift of regulations is true: you can carry concealed weapons into parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone and shoot just about everything but a park ranger.
In another of the Bush administration’s awesome midnight rule changes, the White House announced Friday that visitors to national parks may now carry concealed loaded weapons. For what purpose, we can’t be sure. But I suppose the threat of moose in Yellowstone and anemones in Acadia justifies the choice (not really).
WTF?!? Why does ANYONE need a concealed weapon in a national park? Does B**h have some arcane knowledge of terrorists lurking behind giant sequoias or throwing bombs in "Old Faithful"? Is THIS what the NRA's been fighting for for years? How idiotic can you get? Or is that: how patronizing can you get? Does an outgoing president need so desperately to deregulate everything, he'll shoot protected deer and grizzly bears to do it?
On behalf of wildlife everywhere: get this guy out before he endangers sparrows and seagulls!
...And a warning: the next time you go to Yosemite and meet a "Sam", make sure his first name is "Yosemite" and not "Son of".
