    1. National Parks and the Department of the Interior are taking too
    long. Time to act!
    ************************************************** ************

    This foot-dragging by the Department of the Interior (DOI) on allowing
    gun owners to carry in National Parks is getting ridiculous. DOI is
    probably hoping that the next administration will help them avoid
    having to honor our Constitutional Rights!

    We need to urge Senator Webb to get a bill passed that will force DOI
    to allow firearms in National Parks.

    Senator Webb's phone number is: (202) 224-4024

    Senator Webb's email web page:

    Suggested email / message:

    --

    Dear Senator Webb,

    The Department of the Interior has been totally unresponsive on
    changing their rules so that law-abiding gun owners can carry in
    National Parks. DOI has also ignored a letter signed by you and 50
    other US Senators asking DOI to fix their regulations accordingly.

    I urge you to follow through on your pre-election commitment to get a
    bill to repeal the National Park gun-ban up for a vote on the Senate
    Floor. I also urge you to help push that bill through the House once
    passed by the Senate.

    Gun owners have been waiting patiently for years now. Enough is
    enough. We need you to step up to the plate.

    Please let me know what you are going to do.

    Sent, also tried to send it to John Warner Office but he is not accepting anything and is referring everybody to Webb's Office.

    Remember Peter Nap and Skidmark. Do them proud. Be active. Be well informed. ALL rights matter.

    I think I used "civil rights."

    ...as in the Second Amendment - which is the same as the Constitution.
