Ignore that.

Here's what it says at the NPS Death Valley National Park website:

Firearms & Weapons

Hunting and use of weapons in the park is illegal.
As of February 22, 2010, a new federal law allows people who can legally possess firearms under applicable federal, state, and local laws, to legally possess firearms in this park. It is the responsibility of visitors to understand and comply with all applicable state, local, and federal firearms laws before entering this park. As a starting point, please visit our two state’s websites (California and Nevada.) Federal law also prohibits firearms in certain facilities in this park; those places are marked with signs at all public entrances.
Other weapons including air guns, bow and arrows, slingshots must be rendered temporarily inoperable or are packed, cased or stored in a manner that will prevent their ready use. These weapons will be kept out of sight insofar as is reasonably practical.
