Brady Bunch at it Again!

Apparently emboldened by alleged gains at the polls this November, Fox News reports that the Brady Campaign has sued to prevent “a last-second Bush administration change that would allow Americans to carry concealed, loaded guns in most national parks and wildlife refuges.” The initial administration ruling was a great victory for law-abiding supporters of the Second Amendment, and the latest shenanigans by the Brady Campaign represent yet another shining example of their efforts to gut our Bill of Rights.

Basically the new policy is:

“The previous regulation required that firearms be unloaded and placed somewhere that is not easily accessible, such as inside a car trunk. But in January, visitors will be able to carry a loaded gun into a park or wildlife refuge if the person has a concealed weapon permit and if state law also allows concealed firearms.”

This is not some “radical” policy – it’s simply bringing Federal regulations in line with state laws, yet that’s “too much” for the Brady Bunch – they apparently won’t be satisfied until someone has rounded up every firearm in the U.S. The court case will bear watching, and I’ll post more information as it comes in.

Until next time!!!
