    Firearms in Nat'l parks

    US Senate today approved Sen. Tom Coburn's legislation to allow loaded firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges...

    The amendment would overturn a decades-old ban on carrying loaded firearms into national parks. Currently, firearms must be stored and unloaded before people can take them into the parks.

    Coburn's amendment would allow loaded firearms in parks in states that permit the carrying of concealed weapons.

    "It's not about guns,'' Coburn said. "It's about states' rights — being able to determine what's best for them. And it's about the Second Amendment. It's not about bureaucrats telling Americans when their rights are going to be taken away."

    I'm curious if you'll need a permit that is valid in the state hosting the national park, or if any valid permit will do. What about non-resident permits?

    I know the older version of this would require the park to follow the states laws in regards to carrying firearms. Not sure if that had been changed at all. Hopefully it matches the way national forest lands are.

    It does. It basically says if you're legally allowed to CCW in that state, you can take a concealed loaded firearm in that state's national parks.

    So your license has to be valid in that state, as it becomes a state level issue, no longer a separate federal rule.

    So that means California is still basically the same...

    As a general rule, I'd say California=no lawful CC. Lame.

    Just want you all to be aware that this new found ability to carry, if eligible, a CCW into a Nat'l Park won't take effect until February of next year, when the rest of the Credit Card bill takes effect.
