    National Park concealed carry restored

    Concealed carry in National Parks which had been passed by the Bush Administration and the blocked by an injunction, issued by a Federal Judge, will be restored as soon as Obama signs the credit card bill that was passed today by the House:

    Congress Approves Bill Restricting Credit Card Industry, Allowing Guns in Parks - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com

    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!

    I read the text of the Coburn amandment, & it's not Concealed Carry, it is just (simply) carry (/possession) that will be allowed provided that carry is allowed in that state. But that creates some interesting situation. In Wyoming (YNP) you can not carry in a State Park. If the WY Legislature bans State Parks, what do you want to bet that during the next session they ban National Parks?? Guess you can still carry in the ID and MT portion of YNP. MT allows unlicensed CCW outside of city limits so you can CCW in GNP (& the MT portion of YNP). Florida does not allow Open Carry at all, so the only way you can carry in ENP is with a CHL that is honored in FL (same for Texas & BBNP - need a CHL). AZ is an OC state so I guess you can carry in GCNP , but you can't OC in MN unless you have a CHL that MN Honors, so VNP is probably out for many folks.

    Please do this! Let's keep it going!!!

    Now, May I suggest that we keep the pressure on by Writing and Calling those who voted for the bill, regardless if they are dems or repubs, and THANK THEM for voting for the bill and to PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT GUN OWNERS AND THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THEM. Believe me, they will remember this when the Assault Weapons Bill or any other Gun Control bill comes along. Some of these people voted under heavy pressure from their fellow Democrats, and voted with the gun owners. Make sure they know you appreciate it. This is one thing that you can do to keep it going. Don't deviate from the subject and talk about other subjects. Tell them you visit National Parks and you appreciate the ability to carry with your CCW Permit and protect your family. Please do this.

    I'm trying to contact the NRA-ILA right now and have them post it on the website. I will provide a link if it's done soon.
    There's Something Goin' On Here, and it Ain't Funny!!!

    This is almost if not exactly the same as the previous National Parks deal where they followed state laws. That was the entire premise behind the carry that the law in the NP should follow state laws. I don't think it was ever intended to be either CC or OC just whatever the state allows.

    Not to argue, but the Change in Pilocy that went into effect 1/9/09 and was then "suspended" 3/19?/09 due to an injunction granted by a WDC Federal Judge, ONLY allowed CC, and of course you had to be "permitted" to CC in the state in which the Park / FWR was located.

    Now having said that, I totally agree with you that "the entire premise should be that the law in the NP should follow state laws" and that is the way that it should be IMVHO.

    Personally, I am much happier that I do not have to worrie about Printing or Showing, b/c the kinds of HG's that I will now be carring in the Back Country areas of YNP & GNP are NOT very easy to (completely) Conceal!

    Thaks for the correction, I did not study either one closely so I was just going by rumors and posts on various boards. Once some guildelines are published then we will know exactly what is involved. I am just glad that something sensible did get through congress.

    In the meantime, I think that we should push to have the nonsensical injunction imposed by DC Judge Colleen Kotar-Kotelly "quashed". I have emailed the NRA-ILA and expressed my thoughts on this matter. If the injunction is lifted, then when the new law takes effect, you'll kind of have it both ways if you have a CCW. You'll be able to carry "as you like" within the limitations of the two laws. In the interim, if you have a CCW, you'll be able to carry until the new law takes effect which is February 2010.
