Guns In National parks Back?

From the AP

"Senate backs allowing guns in national parks

Associated Press - May 13, 2009 2:03 AM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate has approved a measure that would allow people to carry loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.

Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma sponsored the amendment, which would restore a Bush administration policy allowing loaded guns in national parks.

A federal judge blocked the policy in March. The Obama administration said it would not appeal the ruling. The gun amendment was attached to a bill imposing restrictions on credit card companies. The amendment was approved 67-29."

Nice numbers there Here is your vote summary:

Concealed weapon permit holders, although law abiding and trustworthy while packing in a highly populated urban area, turn magically into blood thirsty vigilantes when they enter the wide open space of a national park. They can't be trusted.

Their once impeccable safety record and microscopically low incidence of firearms misuse is suddenly at risk of disintegrating into mindless brandishing, and wanton terrorizing of campers, especially those badly dressed europeans wearing black sock with their sandals.

Oy

Don't forget poachers and contaminators of the King's land with lead one shot at a time. :barf:
