These nice people, the NPCA, want people to send comments about " That's right, guns in parks. LOADED guns in parks." Eeeeeeeeeek!!!!! So I edited their suggested email a little. Just a few minutes of angle a little.
America's national parks are some of the most peaceful places in our country, interuppted only by the occasional kidnapping, rape or assault committed by armed criminals upon a disarmed citizenry. (We at the NPCA are indifferent to in favor of bear attacks upon humans. They are natural, if messy.) They offer solitude and an opportunity for reflection, the perfect environment from which to put rounds downrange. That's why I was so thrilled to learn that the administration is considering allowing loaded guns in our national parks. No longer will human predators be able to sneak up on visitors to our parks with the assurance of grizzlies snacking on honeybees. The bees will not be better armed, but the rest of us will.
Please open up our parks to loaded guns. This administration would be setting a terrible precedent by not allowing loaded weapons in our parks, validating the basic trust in the values and virtue of the American people, from whom you derive your consesnt to govern. And don't forget it!!! MOLON LABE. (Reputedly the reply of Leonidas and the Spartans to Darius and his Persian army at Thermopylae who, when told to surrender their arms said, "Come and take them". Sometimes this phrase is translated as, "Don't shoot til you see the whites of their eyes."
