Senate Backs Allowing Loaded Guns in National Parks

WASHINGTON -- "The Senate on Tuesday voted in favor of a measure, 67-29, that would allow Americans to carry firearms in national parks, if their state laws permit them to possess a gun, with 27 Democrats voting in support.

But because the measure was passed as an amendment to a broader bill seeking reform of the credit card industry, the move jeopardizes the reform bill, whose lead sponsor, Sen. Chris Dodd, opposed the firearm amendment.

The amendment was sponsored by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who has been fighting for some time for the measure. Dodd, a Connecticut Democrat, voted against the Coburn amendment.

Bullshit, bullshit, blah, blah, blah.

If the House finds its balls and does the same it'll be interesting to see if anti-America-Obo vetoes it. The fix might very well be in, with our "representatives" voting for park carry knowing full well that the jerkwad in-chief would never sign the thing.
