Fairfax, Va. – At the request of the Bush Administration and 51 members of the United States Senate led by Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID), the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prohibition of firearms on agency land will be revised in the following weeks. The National Rifle Association (NRA) is leading the effort to amend the existing policy regarding the carrying and transportation of firearms in National Parks and wildlife refuges.

Not “may be”, or “could be”, but “will be revised”.  It looks like the changes will have the National Parks match state lands in whichever state they’re located in, which is great for Hoosiers.  As you may or may not know, Indiana state law allows people with Carry Permits to carry concealed in State parks, when this goes through, we’ll be allowed to carry in National parks in Indiana as well.

  1. Crapo – can’t help but laugh at the name.

    Funny, we haven’t had any “wild-west” style shootouts since people could legally carry in our state parks.

    It does make me worry a little more about my dad going over in his underwear to tell the rowdy campers across the way to quiet down in the middle of the night. 🙂

    Off topic – Where would you go if you were looking for a Buckmark pistol?
