51 Senators now support right to bear arms in National Parks

NRA-ILA alert:

Four More Senators Send Letter to Secretary Kempthorne Requesting the Interior Department Change Its Policy Regarding Firearms in National Parks

Monday, February 11, 2008


As part of the ongoing NRA-ILA effort to change the National Park Service rules to allow Right-to-Carry in our national parks and wildlife refuges, four additional Senators have written to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne urging him to remove restrictions on the carrying and transportation of firearms by law-abiding gun owners. Senators Kit Bond (R-MO), Russ Feingold (D-WI), Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Roger Wicker (R-MS) sent the letter to Secretary Kempthorne on February 11.

Together with 47 other Senators who signed a letter (www.nraila.org/Media/PDFs/kempthorne_ltr.pdf) to Secretary Kempthorne on December 14, 2007, a majority of the U.S. Senate has now called for this policy change.

NRA-ILA has made the adoption of new rules to allow law-abiding gun owners with permits to carry their firearms for self-defense while traveling in our national parks a top priority and we have been working for nearly five years to change this policy.

This is very good news. The idea of disarming all law abiding citizens in National parks with a useless gun free zone policy which criminals naturally ignore (by definition criminals ignore laws) has been a foolhardy policy that is long overdue to be overturned. All it does is set law abiding citizens up to be defenseless victims & is contrary to their right to bear arms in their own self defense.

H/T to Sebastian.

Actually, the correct number is 50, as Senator Wicker's signature merely replaced that of former Senator Trent Lott, whom he replaced in the Senate in January. Still, good news for us.

Guns Can Save Lives.

CBS' Shomari Stone explains how law abiding citizens used their guns to protect themselves from alleged thugs. He didn't show any "liberal bias" like several mainstream reporters. Now I see why Republicans and 2nd Amendment advocates respect Shomari Stone's fair reporting.

Here are two examples of how "Guns Save Lives."

OH, THIS IS NOTHING! Next Step? Will be when I am subpeona'd for my testimony on my past 30+ years as an US Army "Manchurian Candidate Study" subject.
(Go to www.rickhyatt.freeservers.com to see just how immersed I AM in this espionage business - Hope you have Piclens, for I've got PHOTOS of past major spies I have known long-term along this line you won't believe!)
That is to say, my own mission as a "Sleeper," totally controlled, of course, by the FBI and (Double-Blind, unknowingly) "Social(ist) Services," was to "Act up" (Utilizing special psychological and physical attributes such as clinical hypnosis and Celiac's Disease, which causes reversible neopathy) to the degree that I became "One of those who shouldn't own a gun... and thusly influence on-going anti-gun legislation. I was successful in helping Maui Waiver Form 2036 (Allowing the corrupt politicians to search a gun applicant's ENTIRE LIFE'S medical, sexual etc. files) and then exploit same for political purposes on Maui. Coming then here to Wyoming, hearing of my "Reputation" they specially whipped up our Concealed Carry Permit Restriction, for such " a person like me... Then, when I passed the NCIC, etc., and got a Florida Permit, valid here, they passed a special law - JUST FOR ME- ILLEGAL AS HELL - Such that it could not be used here, as examples.
My "Behavioral Programming?" To act unnaturally conservative, pro-Constitutional, openly Patriotic, and to be vocal about it. Be "Dumbed Down" from the Celiac's by eating bread and drinking beer. Couldn't have made a better target and/or "Dummy" for the Liberals to use as an "Example."
Now... Since so many anti-gun laws are based on the acts of the Columbine, Post Office, Mall otherwise-untraceable (By the APA, anyway) "Sleepers" (As myself), then how can ANY OF THOSE LAWS BE VALID AT ALL?
