Both the U.S. House and Senate supported a bill this past week that would allow guns in national parks. A ban on such weapons has been in place for 26 years, but the Bush Administration overturned that ban shortly before President Obama took office; a temporary injunction had stopped the Bush action from becoming law.

Lifting of the ban on guns in national parks was attached by Republicans as an amendment to the bill imposing new restrictions on credit card companies, and Democrats, who potentially could have blocked it, instead chose to let the amendment go through.  Once the bill was put before Congress, both chambers supported it. While President Obama opposed lifting the restriction, he chose to sign the bill, rather than jeopardizing credit card reform so he says,  but I am sure he was not ready for the fall out he would receive from the people of the United States.

The liberals have gotten the Department of the Interior to agree  to assess the anticipated environmental impacts of allowing loaded, concealed firearms into the national parks,” in an attempt to thwart the new law and they will probably make some ridiculous claim like to much lead will leek from the bullets and endanger some microbe we never heard of.  I can not wait to see those results.

Lifting of the ban will take place in February 2010.
