If you haven't done this, DO THIS. The gun grabbers are putting a
concerted effort into having THEIR clones write in to demand no guns in
National Parks, and there are already a significant number of comments
on record to that effect.
Under the proposed amendment, visitors must have authority to possess
loaded and concealed firearms on analogous state lands before they will
be allowed to carry firearms in Federal park areas and refuges.
[Currently such practice of concealed weapons is prohibited by federal
rules -- this would remove that prohibition to conform with the state's
laws.] In practice, this will mean that two conditions must be met in
order for this proposed regulatory change to permit the possession of
firearms on federal parks and refuges. First, the state in which the
park or refuge unit is located must have laws that allow the individual
to possess concealed and loaded firearms. And second, the authorization
to carry a concealed and loaded firearm must be applicable on the
analogous state lands in the State in which the park or refuge is
located. Where these conditions are present, the proposed amendments
will accommodate State prerogatives with respect to recognition of
licenses issued by other States, including reciprocity agreements.
