    Please write, call or e-mail your Senators regarding the Coburn Amendment to S.2483.

    Here's the short letter I sent my Senators:

    When the Senate considers S. 2483, the National Forests, Parks, Public Land, and Reclamation Projects Authorization Act of 2007, please support the Coburn amendment that would allow legally carried guns in our National Parks.

    The policy change sought by Senator Coburn should be supported.


    /Signed/

    If you need the name, address, or e-mail address for your Senators, look here:

    Please do so now! We need to act!

    Here is what the Brady camp is sending out.....of course they oppose it!
    MORE GUNS IN NATIONAL PARKS PUTS VISITORS AT RISK
    Tell Your U.S. Senators to Protect Our National Parks: Oppose the Coburn Amendment

    Dear XYZ,

    A proposal facing action by the U.S. Senate would force National Park and National Wildlife Refuge managers to allow more loaded, hidden handguns in America's National Parks and Wildlife Refuges, endangering the public as well as wildlife.

    Why are we putting hikers, campers, and families at risk by introducing loaded, hidden handguns into our National Parks? This proposal is a bad idea that the Senate should reject.

    PLEASE CALL YOUR U.S. SENATORS TODAY!
    Tell Them "More Guns in National Parks Puts Visitors at Risk: Oppose the Coburn Amendment to S. 2483"
    Call (202) 224-3121 for the Capitol Switchboard

    Under current federal law, firearm possession and transportation in our National Parks is carefully regulated. But Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, an ally of the gun lobby, plans on offering an amendment to a broader bill on public lands issues that would weaken the reasonable gun restrictions on federal lands adopted in 1982 by the Reagan Administration.

    Given the heightened security risks in the post-9/11 world, as well as contemporary concerns about poaching on federal lands, we find the Reagan Administration regulation to be both necessary and appropriate.

    Tell your Senators to stand with the Association of National Park Rangers, the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees, and the U.S. Park Ranger Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, who recently stated: "Senator Coburn’s amendment will make poaching in parks even more prevalent than it already is, thus reducing the opportunity for children, families, and Americans from all walks of life to easily view wildlife that so many parks provide."

    Don't allow Senator Coburn to change federal law to expand the carrying of loaded guns in our National Parks!
    Don't you like the way they are invoking Reagan's name to give themselves credibility......

    Sen Coburn is one of my Senators but I have taken the time to write Sen Inhofe asking for his support. (Which I'm sure he will anyway.)

    I like to ask my folks in Congress to vote my way even if I think they alreay will. Nice to give them a little encouragement! I also sent Sen Coburn a nice "thank you" letter too.

    I would encourage everyone to send Sen Coburn a thank you email to help encourage him to keep up the good work.

    My Montana Senators have both signed on in support of this amendment.

    Exclamation

    If he may allow me to speak on his behalf, our member BlackPR spent a ton of time and effort supporting this.

    Let's get behind it big time and make sure the Brady Bunch don't overwhelm our Senators with their nonsense!

    Thanks!

    National Park Firearms Carry

    Hi, in the next week, the U.S. Senate may consider bill S-2483. This bill would allow state law to govern firearms carry and transportation in National Parks and Wildlife Refuges, which we can't do right now. I am asking everyone to contact their U.S. Senators. Be polite and short and sweet and ask them to please support this bill as you support it. For more contact info including how to get to the Senators websites where you can email direct see these: www.nraila.org/Media/PDFs/kempthorne_ltr.pdf also NRA-ILA :: Legislation Please help to get this passed this year while we still can. Thanks for any help....Stargazer

    I searched the 280 page bill on Thomas - it didn't contain the words firearm, gun, or transport. The letter asks the Secretary to change a policy, put into effect by the Reagan era James Watt. Is there an amendment about firearms to this bill?

    National Park Firearms Carry

    Here is the other link that I received from the NRA. www.nraila/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id3437 This would have an amendment attached to S-2483.
