    Obama signs law curbing surprise credit card fees

    One part of the bill Obama did not publicly celebrate at the signing, a gun amendment. The measure by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., allows people to bring loaded guns into national parks and wildlife refuges.

    The addition of the amendment to the bill -- and Obama's acceptance of it -- was viewed as a bitter disappointment for gun-control advocates.

    They watched gun-rights supporters gain a victory from a Democratic-controlled Congress and a Democratic president that they couldn't achieve under a Republican Congress and president. Many blamed the National Rifle Association, which pushed hard for the gun law.

    Yes. We need all the good news we can get.

    Unhappy Firearms at National Parks will not take effect until February

    National Parks Gun Law Takes Effect in February - Federal Eye -

    National Parks Gun Law Takes Effect in February
    A new law permitting concealed loaded firearms at National Parks will not take effect until February and the Interior Department will continue to enforce Reagan-era restrictions until then, a spokeswoman said today.

    "Under the current regulation, firearms are generally prohibited, but citizens may transport unloaded and dismantled or cased firearms and carry firearms while participating in approved hunting programs and under certain other circumstances," Interior spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff said in a statement released minutes after President Obama signed the credit card holders' bill of rights, which includes an amendment allowing firearms at the nation's National Parks and wildlife refuges.

    The department plans to work on implementing the new law in the meantime, focusing especially on public safety and the safety of National Park employees, Barkoff said. Permission to carry a firearm into a park and the actual restrictions on such possession will vary by state, since the new federal law is governed by each state's firearms laws.

    This week both the House and Senate approved Sen. Tom Coburn's amendment to the credit card bill. The Oklahoma Republican and a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers has tried for years to get the measure approved, arguing that differences in state and federal firearms restrictions made it difficult for gun owners to travel between state and federal lands. Interior instituted new regulations in the waning weeks of the Bush administration, only to have them rejected by a federal judge in March. The Obama administration refused to appeal the decision and the president signed today's bill with no comment on the gun provisions. Approval of Coburn's bill is yet another of several recent setbacks for gun control advocates.

    A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.

    When I saw the headline on CNN that a gun law had been snuck through by congress hidden inside the credit card bill my stomach rolled over. I thought, oh no, now what have they done. Who woulda thunk it, huh?

    Of course, from the Leftist perspective, the National Parks Right to Carry Act was a sneak attack, even though all of the unrelated riders the Liberals attach to Right-Wing bills aren't unrelated riders, they're necessary measures, and even if introduced and voted on between the hours of 2:00 A.M. and 5:00 A.M., there's nothing secretive about them.

    Exactly. There is a double set of standards. What is good for the goose is not good for the gander.

    At least the addition wasn't $10 million to build a statue for some senator like the normal addition is.

    National Park Gun Ban Repeal Signed and Delayed:

    Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) is pledging to attach his National Park gun ban repeal amendment to every bill that comes through the Senate until the repeal is enacted. This after President Obama and the Interior Department declared that the repeal
    passed and signed into law this week will not go into effect for another 9 months.

    The delay is based on the fact that the underlying bill, a credit card reform measure, has a delay built into it to allow credit card companies to adapt to the new rules.

    The National Park Service need no such adjustment period, particularly since a similar regulation was adopted last year and then set aside by a federal judge. It is clear that the
    Obama administration is forcing the delay out of spite toward gunowners and the "gun lobby."

    The Coburn amendment is actually a substantial improvement over the regulatory reform adopted by the Bush administration late last year. Under the Bush administration regulations only licensed concealed weapons were permitted in the parks, but under the Coburn amendment National Parks and Wildlife Refuges fall under the laws of the states in which they are located just as Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands have done for decades.
