Hi, I heard that the new gun laws for national parks have taken effect today. I am very excited and happy that our constitutional rights are being restored, slowly, one by one. I will never travel to any wilderness area with threats of dangerous wildlife and two-legged predators without a gun, so I made a decision never to go to National Parks. However, I love trees, natures, hiking and outdoors activities and always wanted to see Rainier, Olympic, Yosemite, and Yellowstone National Parks. Rainier National Park is the closet to where I live and I would like to take a trip there this spring, but I want to conceal carry my .45ACP and .44 magnum when I am there. Can anyone tell me if I can safely now conceal carry weapons in National Parks in Washington? I plan on getting my WA conceal carry permit soon. Does anyone know if open carry of shotguns, rifles will be allowed in National Parks? I'd appreciate to hear what people have to say about this issue.
