Four More Senators Send Letter to Secretary Kempthorne Requesting the Interior Department Change Its Policy Regarding Firearms in National Parks

Monday, February 11, 2008

As part of the ongoing NRA-ILA effort to change the National Park Service rules to allow Right-to-Carry in our national parks and wildlife refuges, four additional Senators have written to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne urging him to remove restrictions on the carrying and transportation of firearms by law-abiding gun owners. Senators Kit Bond (R-MO), Russ Feingold (D-WI), Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Roger Wicker (R-MS) sent the letter to Secretary Kempthorne on February 11.

Together with 47 other Senators who signed a letter (www.nraila.org/Media/PDFs/kempthorne_ltr.pdf) to Secretary Kempthorne on December 14, 2007, a majority of the U.S. Senate has now called for this policy change.

NRA-ILA has made the adoption of new rules to allow law-abiding gun owners with permits to carry their firearms for self-defense while traveling in our national parks a top priority and we have been working for nearly five years to change this policy.
