Guns in National Parks

On 10-05-2007, we put out a newsletter concerning carrying handguns on the Padre Island National Seashore.  With a little of your help, the rules might change.

On April 30, 2008, the U.S. Department of Interior, through the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, issued a proposed rule to amend the current strict regulations on firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges.  NRA-ILA led the effort to amend the existing policy regarding the carrying and transportation of firearms on these federal lands.  The public has until June 30 to comment on the proposal, and NRA-ILA strongly urges members to file comments in support.
