Yogi better watch it....

Visitors to Jellystone National Park might be armed next time he tries to raid their camp. Yessiree, while the tighty righties have been frothing at the mouth about how Obama is gonna take their guns away... Obama is apparently having no problem at all signing a credit-card bill that has an expansion of gun rights to allow packing in national parks.

While I don't personally think allowing people to pack iron in national parks is a good idea, let's face it -- people are doing it already, the rangers don't have any real way of enforcing the current ban (I've come across people shooting in the DVNP back-country many times), and park visitors are still going to have to obey state and local firearms laws. So while some loonie lefties might whine about how evil this rider was, I suspect Obama is gonna be smirking, because he's seriously fucking with the head of some tighty rightie paranoics who are concerned that "that nigger" is gonna take their guns away and leave them unarmed for the coming race war they expect...
