Decision expected on National Parks carry rule

From the too little, too late files:
The Department of the Interior is expected to announce this month its decision regarding changes in rules governing guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.

When he visited Mount Rainier National Park for the Oct. 10 opening of the new Jackson Visitor Center, Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne said the announcement would be made soon.

“We’re going through the process. We anticipated we’d get a lot of responses, and we did,” Kempthorne told The News Tribune.

Article here. Even if the proposed rule is promulgated as written, I expect the anti-gunners to tie up in court any final rule that allows law-abiding citizens to carry concealed in national parks. And in January, with a new Obama administration, the chances that the administration will continue to support such a rule is slim to none, and slim just left the building.
