    For once the political system seems to be working in our favor. Gun Owners of America is reporting that both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate have now both passed versions of the credit card industry reform bill containing an Amendment that abolishes the gun ban on National Park Service land as well as wildlife refuges. The Interior Department had abolished this ban near the end of Bush’s term in December. Unfortunately the Brady Campaign sued and a shopped the case to an activist judge who struck down the Interior Department’s regulation. The Interior Department, now under the Obama administration, declined to appeal the decision.

    Hope this is solid and true. Would hate to be hand cuffed by a Fed for hiking while carrying on the hip.

    Heads to the President's desk where he's sure to sign it...

    Remember though, this doesn't apply right away. I think it is 9months before it goes into affect.

    Just signed by the President so it's a done deal, but not until February 2010 when provisions of the entire bill take effect as law.

    As I understand it, NRA and SAF are appealing the judge's decision, so we might have a change sooner than that. That said, I'll take it whenever it comes to pass.

    Is it just me that finds it odd that congress and the president acknowledge that we have a right, yet that right is not valid for nine months.

    I believe this was piggybacked onto the new credit card bill, so they give the credit card companies time to amend their practices, so the gun rights have to wait too. Either way, it's a win.

    I understand the why, I'm just saying in theory. If this was any other right I can't see them postponing it for nine months.
