National Park Service Proposed Changes to Firearms Carry Described As "Cruel Hoax"

Registered Users do not see the above ad. has proposed that the new National Park Service Firearms Regulation should simply apply the firearms laws to the State in which the National Park is located.


"SUBJECT: Proposed rule repealing DOI gun ban should be changed to follow proven model of 36CFR261.8 which simply assimilates state gun laws onto federal land

Executive Summary: requests that the proposed rule governing gun carry in National Parks, Wildlife Refuges, and certain other public lands be replaced by incorporation of the proven rule on other federal public lands at 36CFR261.8 to simply assimilate state gun laws. The grounds for this recommendation is our strenuous objections to the proposed rule’s (1) unconstitutional ban on the open carry of handguns, (2) unconstitutional and unworkable vagueness of the proposed rule and its associated criminal sanctions, (3) failure of the proposed rule to achieve the purported policy objective of obtaining uniformity in gun carry rules across federal lands generally, and (4) trap it sets for otherwise law abiding gun owners. In essence, the proposed rule plays a cruel hoax on Americans expecting to carry handguns as they visit DOI lands around the United States."



The comment period on the NPS proposed Firearms Carry Regulations has been extended into August 2008.

What do you think of the comments on the proposed changes NPS Firearms Regulations?
