    That is pathetic... a number of hikers on the Appalacian Trail have been murdered, granted a small number but to ban OC firearms on the AT as well?

    It's treasonous. The government wants the murder rate to go up; victim disarmament is how they achieve that goal.

    From what I've read, carry will be restricted to those with permits; but is there any requirement to actually conceal?

    Yes there is, and having them unconcealed is considered a "strict liability offense".

    Well maybe only one small step to the rear.

    See link/thread below:


    The effort to stop the rule change from impacting the units of the National Park System in Maine resulted in legislation that, as initially drafted, would have banned visitors from carrying firearms in Acadia, along the Appalachian Trail, and at St. Croix Island International Historic Site. However, by the time the measure reached Gov. Baldacci's desk, it had been rewritten to apply only to Acadia, and in that park concealed carry, but not open carry, would be allowed if a firearm owner was properly licensed.
