I could imagine they might have some hope if they were asking to be able to 
shoot ferals only, such as pigs, rabbits, foxes, cats, etc.

That could be a beneficial thing, but I'm not sure it would work out that way. 
Apart from the problems that might occur once people are allowed to have guns 
in parks, I doubt they'd ever eliminate those species. Once numbers drop, the 
area would be abandoned until numbers build up again.

And I have heard of people actually introducing pigs into areas so they'd have 
something to hunt.
