    FIRE MISSION -- National Parks carry moves forward in Senate

    The first "action item" applies to everybody.

    The second "action item" is more-or-less a Virginia thing.

    Good news! Senator Tom Coburn (R - Oklahoma) put an amendment on a
    credit card bill (HR 627) that repeals the gun ban on National Park
    Service (NPS) and National Wildlife Refuge System land. HR 627 just
    passed the U.S. Senate by a 67 to 29 vote. Both Virginia Senators,
    Mark Warner and Jim Webb, supported the bill.

    The bill now goes to a conference committee because the House version
    of the bill didn't have the National Parks amendment (and some other
    amendments).

    The conference committee could strip out the amendment, keep it
    intact, or modify it. We need to fight to keep it in, in which case,
    the President would have to either sign the bill or veto the entire
    bill. The amendment cannot be stripped out by the President.

    ACTION ITEMS:

    You need to let your congressman know that you want the amendment for
    carry in National Parks kept in the credit card bill (HR 627) and not
    stripped out in conference committee. You also should thank Senators
    Warner and Webb for their support of the amendment.

    1. Click on the link below to send a message to your Representative:

    https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml

    Suggested message:

    As a constituent, I urge you to support Senator Tom Coburn's amendment
    to HR 627 that allows state and local laws to govern firearms
    possession on National Park Service and National Wildlife Refuge
    System land.

    Senator Coburn's amendment will in no way change or override state,
    local or federal law, but will simply allow these laws -- enacted by
    legislatures -- to govern firearms possession.

    I urge you to do everything you can to make sure that Senator Coburn's
    Amendment, No. 1067, is not stripped out in the conference committee.

    Please let me know what you're going to do on this issue that is very
    important to my family and me.

    Shot out, no splash report yet.
