The rule will take effect 30 days after it's published in the Federal Register.Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish and Wildlife and Parks Lyle Laverty today announced that the Department of the Interior has finalized updated regulations governing the possession of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. The final rule, which updates existing regulations, would allow an individual to carry a concealed weapon in national parks and wildlife refuges if, and only if, the individual is authorized to carry a concealed weapon under state law in the state in which the national park or refuge is located. The update has been submitted to the Federal Register for publication and is available to the public on www.doi.gov.
It wasn't a law, it was a rule change by the National Park Service. Firearms in the National Parks are now governed by the laws of the state in which the park resides.Just recently a law was passed that allowed a licensed concealed weapon permit holder to carry concealed in national, state, and county parks. Can someone please point me to the law, so I may read it and note it for others.
