The National Park service is about to change their rule to allow carrying in National Parks and refuges, but only for people who are allowed to carry concealed in State Parks in the states where the National Park is located. For most it means you need a permit to carry concealed and your state must allow carrying in State Parks. Let's tell them to keep it simple and just copy the laws for National Forests and just mirror state laws completely. The OPEN COMMENT period is NOW. Go to and search for 1024-AD70. Post your comment so we can open carry one day in National Parks. Thanks.
