Looks Like Brady Suit to Stop Park Rule Only the First

According to today's Waynesboro News Virginian, the National Association of Park Rangers may also file a suit to stop the new rule allowing firearms in national parks from taking effect. According to Association President Scott McElveen, "the presence of concealed weapons increases the potential for loss of life, mainly wildlife."

You see, McElveen seems to think that people that possess concealed carry permits just can't wait to fire off a few rounds. At least that is the impression he gives with comments like, “They have a weapon loaded and immediately available and can’t resist taking the trophy animal, having a little target practice or shooting an animal that is a varmint such as coyotes and rattlesnakes.” I can't express the ignorance exhibited by such a statement.

I guess some people can't be convinced of any facts, no matter how many times they are repeated. Concealed carry permit holders pose a threat to no one but the would-be criminal looking for his next victim.

At least this fellow is up front with his ignorance and makes no attempt to veil it.

We've still got a long, long way to go and if it were only ignorance I'd feel better about the trip.
