Is the concealed weapons law for Acadia a good compromise?

State legislators have approved a bill to allow those with concealed weapons permits to

carry guns into Acadia National Park. Is this a good compromise? Last year, the federal

government repealed an earlier ban on weapons being carried in the parks; the law

allowed states to make their own rules. Will you feel safer knowing another hiker is

carrying a concealed weapon in Acadia, or will you feel less safe?
