Guns are now permitted -- but not necessarily welcomed -- in national parks
As the controversial law takes effect Monday, critics argue it could increase wildlife poaching, violence between visitors and against rangers, and destruction of historic and cultural monuments.
The argument that the misuse of a right is reason enough to prohibit it does not survive constitutional muster.
If you apply the same test to the 1st amendment, the news media would go on tilt. Limbaugh, Hannity and Beck and many legislators would have to be silent, butthe 1st amendment protects wrong headed comments. (death panels, and pulling the plug on grandma)
As with the 2nd amendment. If someone robs bankat gunpoint, or commits murder with a gun,do you take everyone's weapon because they may do the same? The 2nd amendment protects my right to carry a firearm till I misuse it.
