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.
