Gun Rights Alert
12/5/2008 - National Park Gun Ban partially overturned
The Department of Interior has issued new rules to
partially over turn the National Park gun ban
Today the Department of Interior issued their long-awaited new rules regarding the carrying of firearms
in National Parks.
The new rules:
...would allow an individual to carry a concealed weapon
in national parks and wildlife refuges if, and only
if, the individual is authorized to carry a concealed
weapon under state law in the state in which the national
park or refuge is located.
While these rules are certainly a step in the right
they are a far cry from
truly embracing our Second Amendment rights. Sadly,
the fact remains that virtually no one can carry a
gun at Minuteman Park in Lexington and Concord,
Massachusetts. The very National Park that celebrates
the armed uprising of our founding fathers, who were
fighting against the British attempts to
confiscate their firearms, remains closed to concealed
We can -- and should -- celebrate this small tactical victory, but keep our
long term goal of concealed carry in
National Parks in mind.
