Support Your Right To Bear Pepper Spray! Another case where non-violence is better for yourself and of course better for the bears.

o good can come from this new law, traveling into a a national park is choice, if you fear the wilderness....stay away, leave the guns at home........

Just what every vacationing family be traumatized by by gun-totin', beer-swiggin' Bubba Burpwad...when they have to duck for cover from stray bullets....and risk the trauma of seeing wildlife being shot and killed. Family fun turns to family trauma...scarred for life.
