The NRA thinks it's a great idea to let anyone and everyone possess LOADED weapons in our national parks.
Visitor safety? Who cares, right? You care. Our current policies are smart and sound and protect the rights of gun owners and visitors' safety equally.
Allowing loaded guns in parks could be lethal to wildlife and park visitors and would put our already over-burdened park rangers at even greater disadvantage. The Bush Administration has reopened the comment period for a short time.

Dear U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service,
I just found out that the administration is considering allowing loaded guns in national parks. How can this be? When I visit our national parks, I expect them to be safe and serene. But allowing guns in our national parks could change all that.
Right now, firearms must be unloaded and put away, but still can be legally transported. Assertions that firearms cannot be possessed or transported in national park are simply false. So why the rush to change the regulations? The law is reasonable, and it keeps visitors safe.

I urge you to keep the current regulations and not open up our national parks to loaded weapons. Thank you for considering my views.
