National Parks Concealed Carry Dies

As reported, the Obama administration has declined to appeal a federal court ruling that prohibits carrying loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges. This means that the national park concealed carry rights granted a few months ago are gone for good.   Criminals will, of course, continue to carry guns in the national parks, while their victims will be unarmed and defenseless.

This really doesn’t surprise me, given Obama’s anti gun record, and the many warnings issued during the election by Illinois gun rights supporters who knew Obama all too well.  This latest anti gun rights action on Obama’s part, coupled with other more surprising anti-freedom actions, really disappoint me…

Getting back to the substantive issue: Anti gun individuals like to assert that concealed carry is not needed in national parks, and that it is a danger to wildlife.  My response to those unfounded contentions can be seen here and here.

    The ball is rolling.

    Obama will stop at nothing to leave us defenseless.

    We must all fight back now

    So much for the rights of American people to defend themselves in their OWN national parks. Now, where will they want to restrict my freedom next ??

    Don’t worry, Obama will allow the Concealed Carry in Parks when he signs the Credit Card Bill of Rights into law shortly.

    At least with Obama we’ll still have jobs and therefore able to purchase guns, albeit subject to some restrictions. Better than having all the gun rights we want but no money for guns or ammo because Republicans have put us all out of work.

    There is a news story written by Associated Press Writer Mary Foster from Wed Sep 23, 2009, which says that "the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in national parks."
