4/08 Self-Defense Guns In National Parks: Letter To US Senators
April 8, 2008
What happens tomorrow — Wednesday, April 9, 2008 — will probably determine whether or not Americans will be able to carry a gun in a National Park.
The key vote will be a vote to cut off debate on the motion to take up the “alternate” version of the “parks bill.” That bill is S. 2739.
This “alternate” parks bill exists for one reason and one reason only: to block consideration of a Coburn amendment to allow Americans to use a gun to defend themselves in many national parks. Coburn had secured the right to offer this amendment to the original bill, S. 2483.
The procedure which is being used to shut out gun owners is not only unfair; it represents the “bait-and-switch” approach to legislation.
Please do not let it succeed.
Gun Owners of America will rate this vote as a gun vote.
