View Full Version : guns in Yosemite

This may have been done here before, if so I apologize. Planning a back country trip in yosemite, I know recently the laws changed regarding firearms in the park, according to the gentleman I spoke with at the DOJ as well as the ranger service the law says as long as you follow california law, he went on to say that meant while hiking it would need to be in plain site (open carry) with no mag in it. To me that seems like it would draw attention, has anyone done this and if so have you had any problems with park service people etc.
thanks in advance

thanks guys, appreciate it, should have done a search. Sounds like it will be fine, the campsite area is a gray area sounds like (inside tent etc)
