Officials at Oklahoma's national parks and refuges are preparing for controversial new measures, sponsored by U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, that let visitors carry loaded guns. Approved last year as an amendment to a major credit card reform bill, the provisions by the Oklahoma Republican take effect Feb. 22. "The law kicked up a little bit of dust," said Eric Leonard, a park ranger and public information officer at the Chickasaw National Recreation Area near Sulphur. "But at the end of the day we are letting people do something legally in this place they do in other places in Oklahoma. Beyond that, not a lot has really changed."
