What would you think if I told you that because of the new CARD Act, which takes effect Feb. 22, visitors to national parks can now carry licensed guns?

Strange, but true. Congress has a tendency to pass minor or unpopular legislation under the cover of supported changes. It's a bit of a bargaining chip - you give me this, I'll vote to pass that - and it happens all the time.
