There has been a big stink about this lately. A short history of this was back before Bush left office he lifted a ban on a Federal Park regulation prohibiting concealed carry in Federal Parks. The Brady campaign filed an injunction in court and stalled the rule change. It's been stalled until now when it was added to another bill. This amendment was added on to the credit card bill by Republicans in the house, and voted on by 105 Democrats as well. It passed in the Senate with another 27 Democratic votes as well. This is a huge win for gun owners. Now we can legally carry concealed or open firearms in Federal parks for protection... just like we can anywhere else.
