I have had the exact same experience in Canyon Lands. Except I was attempting to get a camping permit, and was answering all the questions the desk jockey was asking. I told them "Yes I have firearms" after I walked by the Firearms Prohibited sign. I still got to enter the park AND my permit. The desl jockey came clean and said, "We would rather have no firearms in the Park, but there is no way we can legally do so..."
What you have experienced is standard Park Service misinformation. Though you are not allowed to shoot in a NP, you may bring weapons in with you, observing proper tranport/storage techniques on public property.
