Department of the Interior Announces Final Firearms Policy Update

File this one under some “good news for a change”. In this news release, Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish and Wildlife and Parks Lyle Laverty announced the final updates to the Department of the Interior’s Firearms Policy. The new policy is:

The final rule, which updates existing regulations, would allow an individual to carry a concealed weapon in national parks and wildlife refuges if, and only if, the individual is authorized to carry a concealed weapon under state law in the state in which the national park or refuge is located.

This updated policy represents a huge win for the concealed carry community. I sincerely hope that this new policy will hold and will not be re-visited or rescinded by the incoming administration.

Until next time!!!
