Not necessarily so.  If you shoot a bear with the RIGHT gun in the RIGHT place, it'll be dead.  And you'll probably spend at least a week trying to explain the "authorities" why you shot it.  A week is a lot of hiking time to be spending on paperwork.  
RIGHT gun - is one that's heavier than you want to carry. 
The RIGHT place - isn't visible if you're being charged by the bear. 
OTOH - it IS legal to carry the gun, just not advisable.  Or smart. 
Also - the question (Are you carrying a gun?) has probably been asked of every thruhiker in history.  Multiple times.  Deal with it.

If you shoot a bear with a gun it's going to get really pissed off.

Sad to hear about this, it is really tragic.  

But especially since now I will get asked yet again by all my concerned friends and co-workers if I plan to carry a gun when I hike thru this section of the CDT (sigh)....
