Actually, I believe that the park will follow state law in which the park is located in. That means that some parks will allow open carry. Always check state laws before you travel thru it with a fire arm.....

We live west of Detroit and some of you may have heard about the mayor of Detroit who went down because he texted everything, and since the city was paying for his phone, it became public knowledge. Lead to his arrest and conviction. He deserved it. Now I'm not saying anyone out there would do anything wrong, but by putting it in writing, in a public forum, it becomes public knowledge.

Here's a reason to carry: Recently in SLC, UT a man went into a grocery store and purchased a knife. He stood in the foyer and proceeded to attack people as they came through with the knife, one gentleman pulled his gun and advised the guy to drop the knife or he would shoot him. He dropped the knife and others held him until the PD arrived. Had the man with a CCP not been there, there surely would have been more then two people injured. Victim or not, your choice.

Here's some pretty good (and it should be accurate) info on interstate carrying.

We went to Phoenix AZ by way of Fresno CA and had to do the same thing in CA. In AZ, no problem.

The post originally asked whether or not or how many of us carry a weapon. I could just answer no, but since of the 50 or so posts of whack over 45 said yes, and they then went on to tell a story about someone they knew who was in a situation that requires they carry one, or quoted a story they read telling them why they should carry one, I decided to say HECK no, and tell you why.

In my 62 years of being adventuresome, and going anywhere I wanted, I NEVER, EVER, was in a situation where a gun would have been of use to me. I've read threads on here where ex law enforcement people have said, "no need to carry one, but if you do, make sure that you are very well trained in the use of this weapon."

Now everyone in our country has the right to carry a weapon, but I've noticed that every one of the member here that said, " but you have to turn it in when you go to Canada". No one has mentioned that they did not enter Canada, because they would not be without their weapon. They just left their weapons, went into Canada, and probably felt perfectly safe.

That's because, no one in Canada has guns. They are illegal, and the crime and death rate by gun is almost non existent.

That was just my justification for being a non-carrier.

When you are faced with a situation where you have to actually point a revolver at a person and pull the trigger you will experience something you never ever want to experience again.

I don't carry a gun.
To answer your question, yes, I have used a firearm with deadly force, and I would have absolutely no qualms about protecting myself in the same manner again.

Guns are in fact NOT ILLEGAL in Canada, and if their crime rate is non-existent then why do they have 192 large facility prisons in Canada?

As a U.S citizen I transport firearms into Canada every year with the proper documentation.

Canada has finally decided to quit registering long guns after spending several billion dollars. Even so, long guns can be brought into Canada, cost is about $75 as I remember
One Canadian newspaper gave cash to some teenagers to buy handguns. Within four hours they had all purchased handguns off the street. Maybe they got the last of them?
Anyway, respect the laws of the country you're in and you won't be in trouble with them or don't go there, which is what I do.
I won't bother to go into the manipulation of statistics here.

Davdeb, the FCRV campvention is in Canada, guess why I'm not going. I hope the mods don't shut the thread down, so let's all be respectful. I personally would never try to convince someone to own or carry a firearm, & I expect the same treatment. I've never had to use, & hope like hell I never have to. It's just a tool, much like your fire extinguisher & smoke detector.
