It’s time we did more than that. We have the Second Amendment for a reason.

It is indeed discouraging to see the NPS doubling down on this. How could anyone the NPS will come out of this looking anything but bad? And beyond the mere PR failure, its just plain wrong to try and block WW2 vets from their own memorial.

I find it most discouraging of all to see low-level NPS employees doing the work without question. I personally know several people who would call in sick rather than blockade the WW2 memorial against veterans, but I suppose every organization has its bad apples and mindless order-followers. I imagine the number of losers is higher, being this is the DC area.

Does anyone know if the other Memorials are closed or just WWII? I have heard, anecdotally, that the Vietnam Memorial remained open. If this is the case and it’s only WWII that’s very, very telling.

I bet you're right. A similar thought crossed my mind today. Is the MLK memorial open?

My guess is that President Obama knows that from his days as a community organizer.

This is not a battle he can win.
