The ADN has picked up the story. This goes back to a post Chris made in February, just after this law was passed.
Both the ADN and the Newsminer have picked up on the fact that while it is now legal to carry a firearm in that part of the park, it is still illegal to discharge it. What hasn't been mentioned thus far is that fact that Alaska's DLP laws do not apply in Denali park, despite the fact that it is clearly posted on the park's website (right next to the fact that there have been 23 bear attacks, whoops!).
This makes the situation much more interesting. Without the DLP provision, what are the hiker's options? I've been wondering since February, and it looks like we're about to find out. If nothing else, better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
I also want to mention that I am not yet drawing any conclusions as to whether or not this shooting was justified. I am waiting for more details to come out. Some that I have seen might lead to the assumption that this was not, in fact, justified, even under DLP, but I don't think we have the whole story yet.
