Bear Bites Boy Scout

The Associated Press: Bear Seeking Treats Bites Boy in Tent So why is it that you can't be armed while camping?
The bear entered the boy's tent Sunday night and bit down on his sleeping bag, probably trying to get candy bars and cereal hidden there.
OK food in bear country is a problem, but then bears in bear country appear to be a problem. The bear took off when the boy screamed, but it could have ended much differently. Why can't the Scout leaders be armed? (According to the Post at Keep and Bear Arms, "PA DCNR prohibits functional weapons except while hunting or in your vehicle or building.")
