MODS - If this is posted else where - then feel free to delete or move.I think we could find a lot of supporters among anglers/fishermen, hikers, campers, backpackers, mountain bikers, XC skiers and most anybody who ventures on trail or off. Even if a park does not allow those things, forums and associations of those enthusiasts are where you'll find a higher concentration of people who may want to CCW in a national park to protect themselves from wolves, mountain lions, various kinds of bears and/or Bad Guys. And remember, this is a national issue, not just a CA issue, so pass this on to the national forums too.

If you have (or want) a non-resident FL or UT CCW permit to CCW in National Parks outside of CA, this affects you too! ! !

Mike Haas, this is something CalNRA should be promoting.

MORE GUNS IN NATIONAL PARKS PUTS VISITORS AT RISK
Tell Your U.S. Senators to Protect Our National Parks: Oppose the Coburn Amendment
Dear Randall,

A proposal facing action by the U.S. Senate would force National Park and National Wildlife Refuge managers to allow more loaded, hidden handguns in America's National Parks and Wildlife Refuges, endangering the public as well as wildlife.

Why are we putting hikers, campers, and families at risk by introducing loaded, hidden handguns into our National Parks? This proposal is a bad idea that the Senate should reject.

PLEASE CALL YOUR U.S. SENATORS TODAY!
Tell Them "More Guns in National Parks Puts Visitors at Risk: Oppose the Coburn Amendment to S. 2483"
Call (202) 224-3121 for the Capitol Switchboard

Under current federal law, firearm possession and transportation in our National Parks is carefully regulated. But Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, an ally of the gun lobby, plans on offering an amendment to a broader bill on public lands issues that would weaken the reasonable gun restrictions on federal lands adopted in 1982 by the Reagan Administration.

Given the heightened security risks in the post-9/11 world, as well as contemporary concerns about poaching on federal lands, we find the Reagan Administration regulation to be both necessary and appropriate.

Tell your Senators to stand with the Association of National Park Rangers, the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees, and the U.S. Park Ranger Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, who recently stated: "Senator Coburnís amendment will make poaching in parks even more prevalent than it already is, thus reducing the opportunity for children, families, and Americans from all walks of life to easily view wildlife that so many parks provide."

Don't allow Senator Coburn to change federal law to expand the carrying of loaded guns in our National Parks!

Here's What You Can Do Today:

1. CALL YOUR U.S. SENATORS.
Tell them to OPPOSE the Coburn Amendment to S. 2483: We don't want more people carrying loaded, hidden guns in our National Parks!
Call (202) 224-3121 for the Capitol Switchboard

3. SPREAD THE WORD.
Our Senators need to hear from as many of us as possible. Please click here to forward this email to friends and family.


For more information, please visit our website to read our press release and letter to the Secretary of the Interior on this important subject.

Sincerely,

Sarah Brady, Chair
