Federal Laws prohibiting carrying a firearm
I'm looking for a compilation of all the Federal Laws that prohibit carry in areas. I know of 18 USC 930 that prohibits carry IN a federal building. I also know that there are restrictions on carrying in National Parks (but I don't know the actual law to reference). Are there others out there and if so can you give me the actual law code that prohibits or restricts carry.

I was hoping somebody might already have a list, I hate thinking I've found them all only to later realize I missed one or two.

Not sure where the National Park restriction is.

Library of Congress. Isn't the Library of Congress in Wash. DC anyway?
and there a ton of other specifics as noted above.

I believe the prohibition on concealed carry in national parks is not a law but an administrative rule. The National Park Service (Department of the Interior) has the power to make rules for conduct in national parks, and said that concealed carry was not allowed.
But this rule has been under review by Dirk Kempthorne, the Secretary of the Interior, and it appears that it will be changed to allow concealed carry in national parks, under the same rules as the surrounding state. But the final decision has not been made yet. I expect it soon, as the Bush Administration only has a couple of months left in office. But of course the new administration could reverse it, as they seem to have less regard for Constitutional liberties than the present administration.
