The rosy cheek hull thrusher v your children

A Clinton era appointed federal judge (Colleen Kollar-Kotelly) issued an injunction prohibiting citizens with a valid permit to carry to carry firearms into National Parks and wildlife refuges. Pres. Bush issued a decision to allow firearms into the National Parks where a lawful permit would allow a citizen to do so. The reason Colleen Kollar-Kotelly gives for the injunction? The Bush decision "failed to evaluate the possible environmental impact" of the ruling.
So, what possible environmental impact would necessitate a 44 page ruling from Colleen? Well, I guess a decision process that Colleen calls "astoundingly flawed". 44 pages...
And what, pray tell, is the environmental impact of a bear attack on a group of children in a National Park? Or a bison charging a group of tourists? Will Colleen call the National Park Ranger Defense Hotline so the Rangers can come to the rescue of any citizen who obeys the law when confronted by one who does not?
Hhhmmm...probably not.
She'll be much too busy to be torn away from "Earth in the Balance" or the recent Brady Campaign recent email update. BTW, it was the Brady Bunch who was a party to the suit that brought the injunction from Colleen.
