As the law currently stands, if you possess a loaded firearm in any National Park in Utah or anywhere else (with certain exceptions in Alaska), you can be prosecuted. This is why we're so excited about the proposed rule change now open for public comment. See this thread: Comments due by 6/30/2008 on National Park Carry Rule Change.scuba_steve said:Ok, so letâ€™s open this up to Weber County. OR anywhere within a short commute from SLC.
Please correct me if I am wrong but we can open carry in National Parks within Utah, Right? How about shooting in that park? Any thoughts? I know of a place that might be good on the way up to Powder Mountain. Right side of the highway a few miles before you get there, there is a pull off for a National Park and trails that go down into the woods. Looks pretty secluded but on occasion I see a Sherriff around the area so I do not want to get in trouble. Maybe I should stop next time I see him and ask him the question, I'm not shy.
Don't get in trouble and lose your RKBA rights forever.
If you're actually talking about National Forests, that's different. We're good to carry and shoot in National Forests.
