    Senate May Consider Change In National Park Firearm Rules

    Friday, February 01, 2008

    The U.S. Senate is likely to consider S. 2483, the “National Forests, Parks, Public Land, and Reclamation Projects Authorization Act,” next week. If that happens, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) is expected to offer an amendment to S. 2483 to allow state law to govern the carrying and transportation of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges.

    If adopted and enacted, this amendment would accomplish the goals sought in the letter (www.nraila.org/Media/PDFs/kempthorne_ltr.pdf ) of December 14 to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne from Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) and 46 of his colleagues.

    The NRA initiated and worked closely with Senator Crapo (http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Fe...d.aspx?id=3319 ) to gather signatures from his colleagues to deliver this strong message to the Department of the Interior on this important issue.

    We have been working on your behalf for nearly five years to facilitate this policy change and are committed to ensuring that it finally happens this year. If the Senate considers S. 2483 and Senator Coburn offers this amendment, we will ask the U.S. Senate to adopt it and NRA members should urge their two Senators to vote for it.

    What would be better(or best) is if they did NOT leave it up to the states,but instead said that it is federal property,that the states have no authority there,and that citizens ARE allowed to carry ther personal firearms on the property.
    Give everybody guns.

    I agree!!

    As of now TN does not allow carry in Parks period, Local or State so this wouldn't do much to help things here.
