PACKIN' MORE THAN A PICNIC BASKET


There's nothing more American than visiting a National Park while packin' heat. Or so the dream goes. But that dream could soon be a reality.
In a victory for gun-rights advocates, the federal government is preparing to relax a decades-old ban on bringing loaded firearms into national parks.
And some of those decades-old bans have been in place for ten decades. But that doesn't stop the good old U.S. of A.
The proposed rule change would let visitors carry loaded weapons into national parks in states with few gun restrictions, such as Montana.
Suntan lotion - check.
Mosquito Spray - check.
Bushmaster CO-WITNESS Carbine 16" Flat Top, with Flip Rear Sight, and 3 Rail Front Sight Block - check.

Or can you slaughter anything that moves on a National Park? F**kin' NRA

"If you're hiking in the backcountry and there is a problem with a criminal or an aggressive animal, there's no 911 box where you can call police and have a 60-second response time," said Gary S. Marbut, president of the Montana Shooting Sports Assn.
