I notice that all the many comments posted seem to be from men. I am a woman. I have camped, backpacked, hiked, even climbed for many, many years. I do not own a gun. I do know how to use one, having done a certain amount of range shooting in my earlier years. Two comments: 1. You can buy a gun anywhere, you do not have to go to gun shows. 2. It is illegal to bring a gun into a National Park unless it is cased and onloaded. Check the regulations on any revelant website.
I was once bitten by a small but determined dog, when I was working as a campground ranger for the Forest Service. Should I have shot it?
