Man Uses Pistol For Protection in National Park

John R. Lott post on the Denali National Park shooting
LA Times Blog post on the shooting

You may have heard that a law passed this year allowing those allowing those permitted by state law, to carry firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges.  It didn't take very long before the law paid off, not that I'm not surprised. . .

A backpacker hiking in Denali National Park in Alaska drew a .45caliber pistol, and fired "about 9 rounds," at a bear that charged the woman he was hiking with.  The bear retreated, and was later found, dead.
