    Nice article. I'm liking this 90 year old Mr. Mays--"Punks are everywhere." Yep, that's why I carry, too!

    Lisa Siemers, president of Texans for Gun Safety, seems to have forgotten about the two legged predators with this statement: "Anyone traveling in areas where there are predators should follow the park's suggestions for safety, such as carrying an air horn to scare off predators. This is a safer practice than carrying a loaded gun in a backpack or belt or front seat of the vehicle."

    There are some predators that an air horn just won't work on . . . those "punks" that are everywhere, even national parks.

    Here's hoping the law passes . . .

    Question National Park News 7 May 08.

    Hey USA Carry,
    I found this on a link called http://www.capwiz.com/gunowners/issu...ertid=11344046 . I signed up for e-mail notification from the capitol-wiz service (free) that affects bills/laws and other special interest legal stuff I follow from DC and Olympia, from the V.A. to 2nd Amendment, to other local WA laws. As stuff goes up for vote or has been voted on, I can track who did vote yes/no and I can respond to them. They get delivered into my inbox HTML or txt, U choose, by following the link, you too can track changes that affect anything that may interest you, http://www.capwiz.com, (requires registration and accept their cookies) links you with a 'Take Action' tab that sends a preformatted letter to your state reps and all the way to GWB! I stick with the my state reps in the senate and congress, very nice way to track and let your elected reps know how you feel, you can also change the pre-format to your own words, but caution if you you tick GWB (and he's one of the choices to get a snail mail or e-mail) from you, please keep it clean & tidy :-) Doesn't mean you can not send a "Dear Pres this bill is a bunch of hog wash, how am I supposed to farm my land with..." or a post no sane person should make: "I'm coming to get you!" will probably get you a real fast vist from MIB's who will have you water-boarding up a storm! The Langley/GitMo two-step!
    Anyway, this came into my inbox, I found this thread on USA Carry, and this seems to be the place to plonk this LONG read. also saw it in National Park Carry so I hope they twig this post so I don't double-whammy this place with duplicate sends. I give you this C/O CapWiz.com for comments good, bad or 'we'll see'. Personally if I can pack a CC pistol in a crowded mall, what danger am I to a critter I don't plan on shooting? Or is that the 'Catch-22'?, 'presumed hunting without a licence' with a 9mm Springfield XD-9 (right!) if it is out of site and only used to protect myself from those 'dueling banjos' types who may think I look sweet, or want to strip me of my GPS, cell-phone, camera, binos, walkie-talkie/CB radios, and about $1,000 in other kit I take on nature hikes around the wonderful natural beauty that is outside Spokane.
    I leave you with 'the goods' on National Park (CC) Carry as of today to tell me/us what you think, sorry, it is another long post. I am not trying to keep you reading all the chit-chat I post almost daily, so if you know me for a long winded wolf :6:, just lurk right by my posts without a scan.
    Thanks,

    Carrying Guns Soon To Be Legal In National Parks
    -- But your help is needed to make sure the right is permanently recognized

    The Bush administration, after more than seven years, has finally issued regulations permitting the carrying of firearms in national parks. Gun owners will soon be able to carry firearms according to the laws of the state in which the park is located.
    While not perfect, the proposed regulations, which are likely to take effect at the end of June 2008, represent a sharp contrast with the steadfast refusal to allow for self-defense in national parks.
    The bureaucrats responded after a crescendo of congressional activity. Senator Tom Coburn has made efforts to put the matter before the Senate, and would have done so had Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid not broken his word to Coburn to allow him to have a vote on the measure. Also, 47 Senators signed a letter to the Department of the Interior urging that the ban be removed.
    In the House, there are now three bills that would open national parks to carrying firearms as regulated by the state in which the park is located.
    The most recent bill, and the most comprehensive, is that of GOA Life Member Paul Broun (R-GA), who was elected to Congress in July of last year. Rep. Broun has introduced HR 5646, the "Protecting the Second Amendment and Hunting Rights on Federal Lands Act of 2008."
    This is not the time to slack off on our efforts. If congressional activity got the Park Service bureaucrats to finally move, we need to keep the heat on. We need to make sure they follow through.
    Moreover, legislation is the more sure way of keeping concealed carry "on the books." Regulations could be changed the first day an anti-gun president takes office.
    Finally, Rep. Broun's legislation would go even further than the proposed National Parks regulations. As we mentioned above, they are not perfect. Among other things, it's not clear (in the proposed regs) whether or not an individual will be able to engage in open carry on national park lands for the purpose of self-defense. That would not even be questioned under the Broun bill.
    So with all this in mind, we urge you to send an e-mail to your representative urging him to cosponsor Rep. Broun's bill, HR 5646.
    ACTION: Please urge your Representative to cosponsor HR 5646. You can use the Take Action feature to send your Representative the pre-written e-mail message below. And, you can call your Representative at 202-225-3121 or toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.

    Tell you what! I'm going to give the Right Honorable Harry Reid a call and urge the sterling example of Senatorial Representation to get on board with this. I'll let him know that I'm sure we can count on him to do the right thing, to support the rights of the people, to represent us to the best of his ability...Who am I kidding?

    I wish we could replace this useless power monger with a real Senator. But until then I'll let him know (politely, folks--always address scum as though they deserve respect) that a vote on this issue would be appreciated.

    I'd really like for our government to take another step towards sanity and approve this.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    One thing that has puzzled me for a long time is how do people like him and Ted Kennedy, Barbra Boxer, Barney Franks etc. etc. keep getting re-elected. Either there are a whole lot more ignorant voters in America then we would like to admit or the elections are really rigged.

    Absolutely on the point. It's observations like this that make me cynical about out future.

    I wish I had a dollar for every time I've asked that question. And I wish I had another dollar for every time I've suspected elections might be rigged. I take it as a given that most people are ignorant.

    I have a hope (soon to be dashed, I'm sure) that a good decision by SCOTUS on Heller could rekindle an interest in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights--enough to make people rethink asserting our rights.
