Senators request Interior to allow carrying in Parks
47 Senators have requested that Interior Department modify its regulations to allow carrying in National Parks. Since National Parks are often large, thinly populated with LEOs, and frequently contain wildlife that may think that humans taste very good, it seems like a plan to me.
Old Fish and Wildlife Service joke: a fellow asks what is the best handgun to carry in grizzly country. Reply: get a .22 revolver with a short barrel, and grind off the front sight. Why would that be best? "Because that way it hurts less when the grizzly takes it away from you and shoves it up your ***."
I'm told, by an attorney for the company, that Ruger does have a letter of praise from a guy who saved himself from a grizzly charge with one of their little Bearcat .22 revolvers. He shot, and by one in a million luck caught it right in the eyesocket.
