We’ve reported on the relaxation of the federal parks gun ban. As of Monday, licensed gun owners are good to stow. Of course, not everyone is happy about this new state of affairs. For example, the change inspired The New York Times to wonder Whiskey Tango Foxtrot President Obama isn’t doing on gun control. Meanwhile, Maine is considering legislation which would re-ban guns in Acadia National Park and the St. Croix Island International Historic Site. The Washington Post reports that gun owner, hunter and state Senator Stanley Gerzofsky reckons some of his constituents appreciate [legal] gun-free national parklands. Some, but not all. “Now, there’s also families in the state that also want to be able to pack bazookas, but that’s a little different story.” As someone who’s spent a summer in The Pine Tree State, I can say it loud and say it plain: truer words have never been spoken.
