    So now I'm a bit confused. As of today 5/25/09 can we carry concealed in national parks, or can we not do so until Feb 2010? And if we can now, what is the restrictions? Thanks guys..

    The law states that you can carry according to your state permit laws. If you live in an open carry state and have not been pinned to the ground for carrying that way yet, you can probably carry openly in the parks. If your state is an open carry state, but they enforce an open carry moritorium, then your luck may run out.

    CT is officially an open carry state according to it's constitution, but try that once here and you will land face down in the dirt. The CT dept of Safety states that CT is NOT an open carry state, and they will enforce it even though this is in error.

    Call the Parks Service of where to plan to carry and ask, then verify it with another agency. No sense in taking chances on your family's future with these convoluted rules.

    The law goes into effect Feb 2010.

    Read what I wrote above. I have written the NRA-ILA about getting the temporary injunction lifted. I received a reply from them and they are continuing in their efforts to do just that. If they are successful, you'll be able to carry concealed in National Parks if you have a CCW permit. If you don't have a permit, you'll have to wait until February 2010 when the new law goes into effect. After Feb 2010 you'll be able to carry openly or concealed as long as it's consistent with State Law in the State in which the Park or portion of the Park is located.

    Actually I did read you previous post, as well as the full thread. But I was unclear as of where we were today. So I guess as of today, no carry in the parks until/unless we get an injunction with the NRA's help, or wait until 2/10.

    Thanks...

    The House voted separately on the pro-gun Nat'l Parks carry Amendment which was introduced, and passed, in the Senate by Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma. Many thanks to Sen. Coburn, the GOA, and the NRA both of whom spearheaded this effort!
    February, 2010 is the date we can CC on NPS lands.

    I agree and, right after it passed, I sent emails thanking my Senators and Congressman (all of whom voted for the bill) and also to the NRA and Gun Owners of America (GOA) thanking them as well for their tireless efforts in ensuring that the Coburn Amendment remained attached to the credit card bill.
