The defeated amendment you read about required that the states recognize all other states concealed carry permits.

Heck, that's new news to me as well. Perhaps some more vigilant forum member will chime in with references.

H.R. 627 was approved and went into law May 22, 2009. It is scheduled to go into effect 9mos after that (per sec. 3).
In the waning days of the final Bush term, a change was made to the rules of the Interior Department, allowing firearms and carry into National Parks. This was subsequently overturned by an activist judge on the basis that the environmental impacts of the rule change were not adequately studied ... as if upstanding carriers would be poisoning the landscape, or some pap.

VNP clarifies gun carrying law

On May 22, Pres. Obama signed into law the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009, an act which regulates credit card companies and protects consumers.
A provision of that act allows the carrying of loaded firearms in units of the national park and national wildlife refuge systems when authorized by state law and not otherwise prohibited.
Section 3 of the act states that the carrying of loaded firearms will not take effect until Feb. 22. Until that time, the current prohibition against the possession of firearms in national parks will remain in place.
Voyageurs National Park rangers will continue to enforce the provisions of 36 CFR 2.4, adopted in 1983 and 1984, which generally prohibit possession of a firearm within a park.
The safety of all visitors, staff, and wildlife is extremely important. Park staff will work to ensure that there are no misunderstandings that could cause unnecessary concerns to visitors or threaten park resources.
For additional information contact Chief of Operations Jim Hummel at park headquarters, 283-6650.

DaveH: Yeah, I remember reading all that and the initial discussion here on the Forum regarding the actual implementation date.
But when I saw the letter to the editor today, it was specifically targeted at concealed carry in Natl Parks, so I just wondered if something had happened to de-rail the new law. Glad to know that the letter writer was wrong, wrong and wrong
