    i got this at work on sunday:

    in response to recent conflicting information, we want to clarify the park's posture regarding the possession and use of bear spray.

    under 36 cfr 1.4, an "irritant gas device" is considered a weapon by legal definitionh and is therefore prohibited under 36 cfr section 2.4. items marketed and sold as bear repellent would typically meet the legal definition of a weapon. the superintendent does not have the discretion to authorize the possession or use of a weapon for this particular purpose. as with any regulation, the degree of enforcement is a discretionary function that the individual ranger makes in each instance based upon the totality of the circumstance and the possession and/or use of bear repellant would be evaluated in the same manner as any other violation.

    this is a direct copy of the memo which was at the information desk...except the typos are mine.
    I started with nothing, and I have most of it left.

    Sam- ? Does that mean ?? The buck has been passed to the individual ranger??

    Do I need to get a permit and buy me a Bear Gun?

    I just shot off another email for clarification (:>)! I wonder if the same applies to Yellowstone, funny thing is that I bought 2 cans of UDAP at Sportsmans Warehouse in Lex last night. Less than $20 bucks each. Huge savings. They have more there if you live in LEX area.
    What is the magic word used lately on CNN? STUPIDITY.
