    That is my understanding.

    So that would mean no OC in TX

    There are NO National Park specific firearms laws. Whatever the state law is outside the gate of the National Park is what the law is inside the gate of the National Park.

    If a particular state allows concealed carry in their state parks, you can carry in that states national parks. If they don't you can't. I believe there are probably some states with concealed carry that do not allow carry in their state parks. Best to find out about those states, state park laws.

    Respectfully, you are incorrect. State Park carry has absolutely nothing to do with National Park carry. It's like saying you can't carry in a bank because guns are prohibited in schools.

    National Parks and State Parks are two entirely different entities, under the control of two completely different governmental agencies.

    Then try carrying in a national park in Illinois.

    Carry in a National Park is not related to carry in a State Park within that state. That was the orginal rule change that was proposed, but in the end what happened was that carry in National Parks would follow the law of the state as if on "Main St."

    However a state can pass a state law that prevents carry in a National Park within that state, but I don't know of any states in which carry is allowed in some form, that specifically prohibits it in National Parks. That maybe cause there was no need for it until recently and some states may end up passing such laws.

    So the reason you can't carry in a National Park in IL is because you can't carry in IL period.

    That's the best justification you can come up with?

    Ok. I wasn't aware of the amendment. I stand corrected.
