Easiest solution is to get a ranger involved.
I shoot every year I'm out there and I am always respectful and ask before taking any kind of portraiture style shot. I had a great afternoon in the Booby Bar last year shooting portraits of bar patrons and catching some incredible shots in front of a glorious sunset.
I plan on continuing that this year, but as always, only with permission. Part of our interactivity at the camp will be asking to take photographs as well next to our dead guy at the desk. I want to eventually set up a full on photo booth style area and take more dedicated portrait sots of people. That may be my plan for next year.
I also bring a supply of business cards that have my contact info and the link to my photo pages. If someone asks, I will remove any images of them I have put up and/or will send the hi-res files to them. I sent out 12 or so files from last year to people that asked for copies of themselves.
As for threats of violence against photographers, you can posture all you want. I'm not sure why you would think someone with a camera would not be able to defend themselves against such threats.
