    VA-ALERT: VCDL vs National Parks, Round 2!

    VCDL has presented a **new** Petition for Rule Making (PRM) to the
    Department of the Interior (DOI)! The PRM asks for a change in the
    National Park Service's rules which would require that each park
    assimilate the gun laws of the state where the park is located.

    As you might recall, VCDL's original PRM was turned down by the DOI
    under the flimsiest of grounds, two years after they received the PRM.

    The new PRM takes into account the "concerns" that the DOI had with
    the original PRM and adds new, stronger language with additional
    justification for the request.

    This effort falls on the heels of the letter that 47 US Senators sent
    to the Department of the Interior requesting that the rules be changed
    to allow law-abiding citizens to carry in National Parks.

    The DOI is now under pressure from at least two different directions
    to fix the National Park Service's firearm's regulations.

    The fight continues!

    Sen. Tom Coburn of OK has a bill to correct the NPS in this matter.

    (It's inexplicable to me why he endorsed McCain, rather than his House counterpart M.D.)
