Forty-seven United States senators recently wrote to the secretary of the interior, Dirk Kempthorne, asking him to lift the ban on carrying ready-to-fire weapons in national parks and wildlife refuges. Under current law, guns carried into or through a national park or refuge must be unloaded, taken apart, or cased in a way “that will prevent their ready use.” According to the senators’ letter, this rule infringes on gun owners’ rights and is “confusing, burdensome and unnecessary.”
(Note: For more than five years NRA has been working to change the rules governing the carrying and possesion of firearms in National Parks and National Wildlife Refuges to permit law-abiding citizens to possess a firearm in a National Park consistent with state law.
