Dirk Kempthorn on National Park carry

Nice article written by Dirk Kempthorn (Secretary of the US Department of the Interior) on the proposed changes to National Park Rules that would match up the concealed carry rules in National Parks with the Concealed Carry laws of the individual States they are located in for concealed carry in the given State Parks:

The Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service and a number of state parks and refuges (already) authorize the possession of concealed weapons consistent with the laws of the states in which they are located. The evidence does not suggest visitors to these lands misuse their legally permitted weapons for poaching or illegal shooting, or that there is additional danger posed to the public from lawfully carried concealed weapons.
Remember to submit your comments on the proposed changes to National Park rules before the June 30th deadline.
