Once Congress gets back in session, pass a law disarming all park rangers. When did the h*ll did they get weapons? Probably part of the Patriot Act. Citizens, there’s NOTHING patriotic about the Patriot Act.
I believe it was the Patriot Act that did make them park police, instead of just rangers.
Park Rangers are armed but our troops on military bases aren’t.
nope, had em a long time. need them for animals and for loser thugs that do cause issues iun the parks. especially in large parks. probablk noit so much smaller, more urban parks.
They've been slowly arming them since at least the early 80s, with more and more being LE commissioned each year. Hardly anyone took them seriously, so now they even carry Tazers. A rangerette Tazed a guy for walking away from her in a newly-seized NPS area outside of SF (a year or two ago). She was of course transferred to a better spot -- the way they always act with the biggest losers who work for the feds.
