National Park CCW

On 9NEWS last night they had a story about how Obama is "reviewing" the right to CCW in National Parks. I thought this was law. Is there something goin on that I don't know about? Or is the news just getting it wrong? I mean, since it was voted in as a law, it would have to be voted on again, to rescind the law, right?

National Park CCW was not "voted in as a law". It is an alteration of existing regulations that was proposed, had a public comment period and then adopted after the rule change was published in the Federal Register. In theory, the entire process would have to be repeated to change the regulation. Obama does not have the authority to just reverse the change on a whim.
