That's awesome. I'm hoping the Corps decides to go the way of the National Park Service.Wow - the number of comments is now over 8000. Looks like Firearm Policy Coalition launched a major commenting drive.
Just an FYI for anyone who might be directly affected by the current Corps prohibition... I was not aware that you could just ask for permission to carry on their properties. Back when this proposed rule change came out several weeks ago, I found this out. I wrote the District Commander for my area and requested permission to carry on Corps properties. About three weeks later, I got a letter in the mail granting me that permission. I can now carry at my local state park and a couple other places that affect me. I wish I had known that a couple years ago.
One of the places that affects me is a local county park that is along our Corps lake. The county forbids firearms there, but only because of the Corps restriction. Now when we go hiking there, I can carry, as the state's preemption law requires the county to allow me to carry in their parks.
Just something to consider if you have Corps properties near you that you use.
