Good News!

Fairfax, Va. - The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), through the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has announced the final amended version of its changes to rules on carrying of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. DOI’s move will restore the rights of law-abiding gun owners who wish to transport and carry firearms for lawful purposes on most DOI lands, and will make federal law consistent with the state law in which these public lands are located. The National Rifle Association (NRA) led the effort to amend the existing policy regarding the carrying and transportation of firearms on these federal lands.
I think Countertop has a good observation:
Will be interesting political land mine to leave Obama administration, just as gun bigot ramp up attacks and press coverage.

I guess we really will see where Obama stands on the gun issue, won't we?

Thanks to Ashley for the heads up.
