Grand Teton Superintendent does not want guns in National Parks
Jackson, Wy –
One of the last things the Bush administration may do is allow concealed weapons in national parks. The move is opposed by an organization that represents those that work in parks, but a survey this summer found that about half of U-S Senate favors such a move. Grand Teton National Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott is puzzled by the push and is concerned. "Causes concern for both visitors safety, employees safety and wildlife safety. So, I think that needs to be examined. We've not had complaints here about not having the ability to have a loaded weapon or carry loaded weapons."
Gibson Scott cannot think of any scenario where allowing loaded, concealed guns in a national park would be helpful.
