    Provision Protects 2nd Amendment Rights
    House Adds Clarifying Amendment to Heritage Areas Bill

    Washington, Oct 24 - The U.S. House of Representatives today passed an amendment sponsored by Congressman Rob Bishop that will ensure there will be no federal infringement of Second Amendment rights on certain public lands.

    The provision, which came in the form of the Republican Motion to Recommit on H.R. 1483, a bill to expand and create certain National Heritage Areas, stipulates that all designated lands within these areas would be exclusively governed by state and local laws regarding hunting, fishing, and the possession or use of a weapon, trap, or net.

    “What we’re basically saying is that on these public lands, state and local firearm and hunting laws come first and will be enforced,” Congressman Bishop said. “This amendment makes an important clarification that local and state ordinances will have primacy, and that the rights which so many have enjoyed on these lands for generations will not be threatened by federal action.” The northern Utah lawmaker, who sits on the House Resources Committee, added, “This was a win for states’ rights and for individual rights.”

    The Bishop language was added to the underlying legislation, the Celebrating America’s Heritage Act, by a vote of 344-71. H.R. 1483, as amended, now heads to the U.S. Senate for further action.
    I wonder if areas already designated 'National Parks' would be changed to this.......

    Heritage areas are part of the public lands management system. There are 23 designated areas on the list right now. Here is a link to the list:

    A few western lawmakers were concerned about these new designations because they were applied to lands that have historically been used for hunting and fishing and they didn't want to lose those rights.

    The proposed law changes will not get you into a National Park with a weapon.
