Concealed Carry in National Parks Now Effective
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate George Washington’s Birthday yesterday, Feb. 22, than for the Government to finally give us the right to carry in National Parks.
So far we haven’t heard of anyone getting shot, so we’re off to a good start.
President Obama signed the Credit Card Holders’ Bill of Rights on May 22, 2009, which included an amendment to repeal the gun ban on National Park Service (NPS) land and Wildlife Refuges.
Here are the details of the amendment:
(b) Protecting the Right of Individuals To Bear Arms in Units of the National Park System and the National Wildlife Refuge System.–The Secretary of the Interior shall not promulgate or enforce any regulation that prohibits an individual from possessing a firearm including an assembled or functional firearm in any unit of the National Park System or the National Wildlife Refuge System if–
(1) the individual is not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing the firearm; and
(2) the possession of the firearm is in compliance with the law of the State in which the unit of the National Park System or the National Wildlife Refuge System is located.
So essentially you’ll still have to follow the respective state laws covering concealed carry, but this is a major victory and President Washington would be proud.
