He wants to restrict a constitutional right because he does not like people to exercise it? I do not see any other reason given.

Washington state has become another broodery of leftist lunatics.

Yep, McD, let’s deprived everyone of their constitutionally guaranteed rights because of one nut job.

Kind of like speed bumps: Let’s punish everyone for the actions of a few, rather than spend the energy to intercept and punish the guilty.

So much easier. Who cares if we abuse the rights of everyone else in the process?

why on earth people should be allowed to carry loaded weapons in our national parks?

To protect themselves from the people who WILL carry guns in the parks whether there is a ban or NOT and even more so if there is a ban, Adolf.

Yes, protect the killers, Adolf.

But let’s have the ATF arm the Mexican cartels and murder US Agents.

Why don’t you aim your laser focus at that, McDermott?

And exactly how would such a law prevent what happened on Mt. Rainier?

Jim McDermott is the Democrat puke involved in taping private phone conversations by Newt Gingrich.

He doesn't care one way or the other about the Constitution, nor of privacy, security, safety ~ or whatever.

He's into this for personal political advertising purposes. Nothing more than that.

The dreadful and deeply saddening event that occurred on Mt. Rainier makes me question why on earth people should be allowed to carry loaded weapons in our national parks

Because it is our Constitutional right. No ban will ever stop criminal activity and it is his sick unhinged mentality that is destroying America.

He is a liberal democrat - it’s what they do.

A greater chance of being struck by lightning then being mauled by a bruin would be an OK excuse except for the fact that people are struck by lightning.
I’m not going to stay at home when it’s raining out and I’m packing heat if I go hiking. No fed is going to tell me that I don’t have a 2nd amendment
right

The man is a total fool.

The reason carry should be allowed is so that they may protect themselves against person so evil they would murder in cold blood as was the case with the guard.

And because bad guys such as this murder will carry regardless of the law.

But there is no reasoning with a fool.

"Pardon my insolence, your excellency, but wasn't it illegal to commit murder before this happened?"

I’ve always carried in NPs. I just don’t flaunt it. My biggest fear is not bears, but those bipedal creatures.

Isn’t it sad how an elected representative can openly speak about limiting or removing constitutionally-guaranteed rights and nothing happens? Any government official who talks about taking away your rights should lose their job immediately.

What did the rest of you hear?

Exactly how would a gun ban have prevented that ranger from being shot? Someone who is willing to murder is sure not going to worry about a gun ban.

Who needs a gun for self protection when one roadside sign will cause criminals, bears and tyrants to make a U Turn before entering a national park.

Left Coast Dems ignore The Bill of Rights, for one twenty second sound bite.

No way I would go into a wilderness area without a weapon. You’re just asking for trouble (from the wildlife).

“What did the rest of you hear?”

I thought I heard some mumbling about knowing better than the Founders of this country.

It amazes me that this kind of thinking is accepted today. We’re fools if we think voting is going to solve this mess.
