    This will make it even more difficult to get the gun ban repealed. Is poaching a huge problem in National Parks?

    I heard a Park Ranger from Alaska on Gun Talk not too long ago. They regularly carry high powered rifles when they head out into the park. Of course, they "need" protection from the wildlife...and we don't.

    Anyway, he said that rifles get misplaced fairly frequently by rangers and they have to fly all over the place in a helicopter with a magnetic anomaly detector (giant metal detector) to try to find them. It's time consuming and expensive.

    Of course, there's a "professional enough" joke in this story somewhere...

    In African national parks? Yes.

    In American national parks? No.
