Senate May Consider Change In National Park Firearm Rules

Friday, February 1, 2008

The U.S. Senate is likely to consider S. 2483, the “National Forests, Parks, Public Land, and Reclamation Projects Authorization Act,” next week.  If that happens, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) is expected to offer an amendment to S. 2483 to allow state law to govern the carrying and transportation of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges.   

If adopted and enacted, this amendment would accomplish the goals sought in the letter (www.nraila.org/Media/PDFs/kempthorne_ltr.pdf ) of December 14 to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne from Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) and 46 of his colleagues.   

The NRA initiated this letter and worked closely with Senator Crapo (www.nraila.org/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id=3319 ) to gather signatures from his colleagues to deliver this strong message to the Department of the Interior on this important issue.   

We have been working on your behalf for nearly five years to facilitate this policy change and are committed to ensuring that it finally happens this year.  If the Senate considers S. 2483 and Senator Coburn offers this amendment, we will ask the U.S. Senate to pass it and NRA members should urge their two Senators to vote for it.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted.
