Palin supports National Park carry rule

From CNN:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote the Interior Department on Wednesday to express her support for a last-minute Bush administration regulation that allows the carrying of concealed weapons in national parks.

Palin said the new measure provides Alaskans with a means of self-defense in a state with vast swaths of federally-protected wilderness.

"As you know, my state contains vast, pristine areas where the ability to carry firearms can address a potentially life-threatening situation, enabling citizens to respond to bear and other wildlife conflicts," Palin wrote in a letter to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.
