Regarding crazy/irresponsible people with guns....um, crazy/irresponsible people aren't going to pay attention to a gun ban law or a sign on the side o f the road that says, no guns...duh.
Please tell me of an incident in Big Bend NP that anyone has had personally where you needed a loaded firearm.Well, for one, I imagine the fellow who was murdered in his tent in Pine Springs some years ago would have like to have had some way to defend himself. There were no rangers there to protect him; and one of the pervasive mantras is that the rangers are there to protect you so you don't need a weapon. That would be BS and in a large pile. The crime has never been solved. Does murder make the cut???The statement above does not appear to be a personal account and is just a random incident with no real bite to it.
People who don't own, don't want, don't approve sleep well at night because of people like myself who are ready to do what is necessary at any time.
Just don't bring them around me and don't bring them into my camp. I'll post a sign at my camp, No Guns Allowed at This Campsite.

That's a mighty bold statement. However, it's all empty hat. While you may be able to declare such a stance on your private property, you can't do it on public property. You don't make the rules for public places. Your only recourse would be to stay home and that clearly would be your safest course of action.
I've got a great "dream" team of lawyers already paid for standing by.
