While it is legal to carry in the Nat. Park it may not be legal to carry in a Federal building in the park. Just something to think about if you get out of your car and go into a federally owned visitors center, ranger station or post office. Maybe someone else can clarify this or point to a link concerning this issue.

That's what I did last summer. I didn't see any signs on any of the buildings stating that I could not carry either.

My understanding of the carrying of guns in National Parks is that it is legal provided the state in which the Park is located allows legal concealed carry by those who are licensed to do.
Also, carrying is not allowed in buildings where "federal employees" are working, which to me means Park Rangers.

It's important to keep a close lookout for the "governement sanctioned, mass murder zones" (no gun signs) as well as magnetometers (metal detectors) when entering any building and to always keep your concealed weapon very concealed...just in case.

This is pretty much the way I remember it being explained at the time the law was changed.

All of the doors are clearly marked that firearms are not allowed. It seems like I remember the signs even stated it was because it was a government building. I didn't see any signs in the parking garage or elevator. My wife asked why I wasn't coming inside. I nodded at the sign, she rolled her eyes, and I enjoyed not being drug into the gift shop.

There is also a 3" max. concealed blade law in Rapid City (And Belle Fourche, if you visit the center of the nation monument)

This is directly off the Mount Rushmore website;

Firearms

As of February 22, 2010, a new federal law allows people who can legally possess firearms under applicable federal, state, and local laws, to legally possess firearms in this park. It is the responsibility of visitors to understand and comply with all applicable state, local, and federal firearms laws before entering this park. As a starting point, please visit the state of South Dakota's webpage (http://sdsos.gov/content/viewcontent.aspx?cat=adminservices&pg=/adminservices/concealedpistolpermits.shtm) regarding firearms laws.
Federal law also prohibits firearms in certain facilities in this park; those places are marked with signs at all public entrances.

He certainly does have a God-complex I wouldn't be surprised if he did order his face carved in that rock while he was still president! The guy is on video saying he thinks there have only been 3 other presidents that were better than him just after his 1st term lol.

Additional research should be performed if you're planning any time on tribal lands, their laws supersede state/federal considering firearms.

It depends. The federal government has different treaties with different Indian Nations. It's not as simple or as cut and dried as people think.

But, you are right. Research is essential when figuring out what rules apply in any particular Indian Nation.

The sign - one per door - will be tiny and obscure.

They must be! I looked for them and still didn't find them. Ah well... I tried.
