Well, technically, you can.
But in some places you may not.
Some guys know very little of the gun laws for carry throughout the U.S. Nothing new here.
Yes, that's true. The same rules for federal buildings apply as outside the park.
I wanted to visit the cool water fountain and air-conditioned restroom at Cape Hatteras, but they were inside a Visitors' Station. So I had to settle for a plastic outhouse baking in the sun. They even had warning signs posted.
I wouldn't advise carrying on a military base or post. Or a VA clinic.
It actually passed under the Bush administration. Then held up by an activist judge. Obama traded “guns in parks“ for a credit card bill he wanted.
For the state of CT, the USCCA lists a "No." for "Can you carry a concealed firearm in state/national parks, state/national forests, and Wildlife Management Areas in Connecticut?"
Digging a little deeper, the document reference says that you can only carry a handgun for the purpose of hunting small game:
"Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) regulations prohibit, with exceptions, hunting or carrying firearms or other weapons in any state park or forest (Conn. Agencies Regs. § 23-4-1(c)). In order to legally carry a handgun, a person must obtain a permit to carry (CGS § 29-28).
According to DEP, a person may legally possess a handgun in a state park or forest when carrying the handgun exclusively for hunting small game (e.g., rabbits, squirrels) or other authorized activities, such as for use at a firearms range or participation in a hunter education class. They may only do so at predetermined times in areas set aside by the DEP commissioner and posted for such purposes (Conn. Agencies Regs. § 26-66-2(d)). DEP says that what is permissible for hunters depends on the site and season.
Under DEP regulations, a person cannot use a handgun using centerfire ammunition to hunt on state-owned land. Handguns using ammunition larger than .22 caliber rimfire long rifle cartridges also are prohibited on state-owned land (Conn. Agencies Regs. § 26-66-2 (a))."
I'm not sure what to make of this....do I just telling them it's rabbit season?
Me too. More pro-2A than anything Trump has done.
So what, the point is Obama signed it. All politics is give and take.
Guess what president it was that actually banned guns in national parks to begin with? Reagan.
Well Bush signed the “guns in parks” legislation well before Barry.
Do you have a reference where Regan passed legislation to ban guns in national parks ? As I recall the FOPA didn’t.
Small caliber guns in bear country should not be carried. Wounded bear not fun.
So your better off leaving it at home if that’s all you have.

They aren't carried for shooting bears.
Yep. It’s a big deal. It’s been very helpful in our travels. My home state allows carry in state parks if you have CCW permit.
2010 law took effect

I was just at Yellowstone and hunt in Sheridan every year. Wyoming is an open carry state. You can carry openly without a permit in Yellowstone except in park buildings. Not sure I would advise walking around Old Faithful with your 44 on your side but you could legally do it. Be prepared to answer a few questions on your walk.
he did not give up anything. Bush signed the original legislation. A liberal judge held up enactment because “an environmental study” had not been performed.
Actually I did just that. Didn't answer any questions except from one guy who asked what I was carrying and a couple of people who regretted not taking their carry weapons with them because they didn't know you could legally carry in national parks. Most people don't notice, or if they do will not say anything.
Over the years more than a few critters have been 'poached' in Yellowstone. Notably in Gardener, MT. Bars on one side of the street, park on the other side. The temptation is just too great for 'hunters'! Say "Goodby to your guns etc."
