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

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"

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!

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

Sarah Brady, Chair

i already responded by telling them they are full of it. Last year up here in our local mountains a hiker was found shot dead in his campsite. He had been there an estimated two days. If this person had some means of defending himself he may still be alive today. I think we all need to call up our senators and tell them to allow more firearms in campsites as well as forrest

Let us disarm our population post 9/11. Makes sense. The terrorists won't pack in the National Parks because of the law right? Same for the poachers? Who poaches with a handgun BTW?

Not to mention the drug growers... Parks are "gun-free zones", but IIRC, Park Rangers are murdered at the highest rate of any other LE in the nation.

That gun-free zone.. it works. :rolleyes:

More idoit brady supports. What we could do is get their groups phone numbers and have a mass calling/ internet spam attack. It would waste time and money of the group. Who is interested?

Folks, talk is cheap - especially on forums. Use opportunities like this to write your representatives about your position. Whenever the BB send out an email like this, we need to contact our representatives to let them our position.
Blowing steam on this and other forums is meaningless, contacting your representatives counts!

Contacted Tom McClintock a few times, he is clear that he will not vote for any antigun bills. Also contacted E.G. guy in Simi, forget what he did though those NRA cards. Also contacted Boxer and Fienstien though those nra post cards. Have a feeling they burned it or blacklisted all the names they got.
