    "It's unlikely that such a controversial measure would pass in the current session, with Democrats about to take over Congress in January."

    The Sign Up link in the article is not working for me. I'll keep trying...

    3:17pm - It's on WTOP.com, too. I tried to post a response, but I feel that WTOP requires too much info fo my liking, all the way down to your address. And I'll bet that their database is secure...

    Heard the WTOP story on the radio today, seemed pretty fair, at least they mentioned Webb supports it too.

    Just read all the comments (22) at WTOP. Other than the weird ranting about the legalization of drugs and a few name callings... Seemed like the pro-protection folks have an edge.

    Here is a great commentary in the Chgicogo tribune supporting repeal of the National park gun ban:

    The writeromits any discussion of open carry, but otherwise does a good job.

    See this negative commentary by the Daily press: http://tinyurl.com/wr4nz

    Some folks need to pepper them with letters to the Editor - are they not aware that we can already conceale carry in state parks and Federal forests in VA - and no problems are reported!!

    Exactly, Mike. I'm going to find the crime stats in the parks and gin up a response to these "editorials". I had the stats, but can't find them, now. Crime is up and it ain't snowmobiles. It's urban plight, attacks on the Park employees, drug crops, not to mention murders, etc. I'll post my "letter" for us all.
