Park Love...
I have to ask... can I now bring a gun to Yellowstone? The Grand Canyon? It's really an outrage! But seriously, what are the new rules?

As of now, firearms are not allowed in Grand Canyon or Yellowstone national parks.

Although a new law permitting concealed loaded firearms at national parks was passed in May, it will not take effect until February. The Interior Department will continue to enforce current restrictions until then.

Under the current regulation, firearms are generally prohibited in national parks, but citizens may transport unloaded and dismantled or cased firearms and carry firearms while participating in approved hunting programs and under certain other circumstances, according to a Department of Interior spokesperson.

Please remember that firearms regulations may vary by park. Check with the National Park Service or the park you plan to visit before your trip for most up-to-date information.
