    According to a breaking story on the Washington Post, a judge has

    placed a temporary block on carry in National Parks because the DOI's

    process in doing the new rule was "outstandingly flawed."



    Oh, baloney.



    Anyway, we have not seen the actual ruling.



    I expect this to be appealed and hopefully to get overturned. This

    might also provide the impetus to pass a bill to allow carry and

    bypass the DOI completely.



    However, this just goes to show you that if you get the right judge

    you can get a ruling that says the moon is made of green cheese.



    In the meantime you might want to stop carrying in National Parks

    until we get more information on this issue.



    We'll keep you updated.

    Judge Blocks Bush Rule Allowing Concealed Weapons in National Parks



    By Del Quentin Wilber

    Washington Post Staff Writer

    Thursday, March 19, 2009; 5:35 PM



    A federal judge today blocked a last-minute rule enacted by President

    Bush allowing visitors to national parks to carry concealed weapons.



    U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly issued a preliminary

    injunction in a lawsuit brought by gun-control advocates and

    environmental groups. The Justice Department had sought to block the

    injunction against the controversial rule.



    The three groups that brought the suit -- the Brady Campaign to

    Prevent Gun Violence, the National Parks Conservation Association and

    the Coalition of National Park Service Retires -- argued the Bush

    Administration violated several laws in issuing the rule.



    In her ruling, Kollar-Kotelly agreed that the government's process had

    been "astoundingly flawed."



    The regulation took effect Jan. 9 and allowed visitors to carry loaded

    concealed guns into national parks and wildlife refuges. In the past,

    they had been allowed in such areas only if they were unloaded, stored

    or dismantled.

    As if the U.S. had any other reason to be really, really, angry. This country is turning into a powder keg.

    The Brady Campaign to Protect Rapists strikes again!

    I have enjoyed hitting up the National Parks exercising my right to protect myself.

    I guess the Potomac has been running red with blood since National Park Carry went into effect.

    An injunction, by definition, enjoins a party or parties from doing certain things.

    In this case, it seems to me that the injunction must be against enforcement of the new Rule. But since the Rule is permissive in natureand not prohibitive, there is nothing to "not enforce".
