- Under the new law, every park is subject to all the firearms laws of the state (or states) where the park is located.
- Park visitors must know and obey state laws, including knowing which state laws apply in parks (such as Yellowstone) that cross state boundaries. (For information on state laws, go to www.nraila.org/gunlaws.)
- The new law affects firearms possession, not use. Laws regarding hunting, poaching, target shooting or any unlawful discharge remain unchanged.
- It will remain unlawful to carry in certain locations, under a separate law that prohibits possession of any firearm in a "federal facility."
