    In light of the credit card bill being in effect now, can I carry without a permit openly on National Park lands such as Lake Mead and the Nation Recreation areas around there. Has anyone of you guys tried it or inquired about it? I always open carry in Vegas (go there at least 2 weeks a year) and had no problems so far. Thanks for your help in advance...

    I'm not the Law expert, but I am pretty sure national park carry is Fine, and is recognized as such. I OC'ed at Lake Mead A couple weeks ago. I clarified with park staff on this issue, and told me that if "I was following State Law" I was free to do so. However, note that yous still CANNOT carry into any federal bulidings. (Park buildings)

    I have also heard the same thing....I personally have not gone to Boulder city to try it out..I OC in Henderson some times ...
    I mostly CC.... I like stealth...lol

    My opinion...the Leo's wont stop a group of guys OC'ing, but i do notice they seem to stop single OC'ers more than they do a group.... so be sure you have a handy recorder with you...we the people need witnesses...the cops dont like witnesses...:what:

    Took a trip to Boulder City last week. OC'd in town several places. Visited a Starbucks and a pawn shop and walked around their "downtown" sidewalks and shops. Pretty cool. No one gave me any second looks.

    Then I went over to the Railroad Pass casino and was there 30 minutes or so. Also no problems.

    Firearms in National Parks are now permitted as they would be in the rest of the state.

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...?bill=h111-627

    SEC. 512. PROTECTING AMERICANS FROM VIOLENT CRIME.
    (a) Congressional Findings- Congress finds the following:
    (1) The Second Amendment to the Constitution provides that ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed’.
    (2) Section 2.4(a)(1) of title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, provides that ‘except as otherwise provided in this section and parts 7 (special regulations) and 13 (Alaska regulations), the following are prohibited: (i) Possessing a weapon, trap or net (ii) Carrying a weapon, trap or net (iii) Using a weapon, trap or net’.
    (3) Section 27.42 of title 50, Code of Federal Regulations, provides that, except in special circumstances, citizens of the United States may not ‘possess, use, or transport firearms on national wildlife refuges’ of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
    (4) The regulations described in paragraphs (2) and (3) prevent individuals complying with Federal and State laws from exercising the second amendment rights of the individuals while at units of--
    (A) the National Park System; and
    (B) the National Wildlife Refuge System.
    (5) The existence of different laws relating to the transportation and possession of firearms at different units of the National Park System and the National Wildlife Refuge System entrapped law-abiding gun owners while at units of the National Park System and the National Wildlife Refuge System.
    (6) Although the Bush administration issued new regulations relating to the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens in units of the National Park System and National Wildlife Refuge System that went into effect on January 9, 2009--
    (A) on March 19, 2009, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted a preliminary injunction with respect to the implementation and enforcement of the new regulations; and
    (B) the new regulations--
    (i) are under review by the administration; and
    (ii) may be altered.
    (7) Congress needs to weigh in on the new regulations to ensure that unelected bureaucrats and judges cannot again override the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens on 83,600,000 acres of National Park System land and 90,790,000 acres of land under the jurisdiction of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
    (8) The Federal laws should make it clear that the second amendment rights of an individual at a unit of the National Park System or the National Wildlife Refuge System should not be infringed.
    (b) Protecting the Right of Individuals To Bear arms in Units of the National Park System and the National Wildlife Refuge System- The Secretary of the Interior shall not promulgate or enforce any regulation that prohibits an individual from possessing a firearm including an assembled or functional firearm in any unit of the National Park System or the National Wildlife Refuge System if--
    (1) the individual is not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing the firearm; and
    (2) the possession of the firearm is in compliance with the law of the State in which the unit of the National Park System or the National Wildlife Refuge System is located
