According to a breaking story on the Washington Post, a judge has
placed a temporary block on carry in National Parks because the DOI's
process in doing the new rule was "outstandingly flawed."
Anyway, we have not seen the actual ruling.
I expect this to be appealed and hopefully to get overturned. This
might also provide the impetus to pass a bill to allow carry and
bypass the DOI completely.
However, this just goes to show you that if you get the right judge
you can get a ruling that says the moon is made of green cheese.
In the meantime you might want to stop carrying in National Parks
until we get more information on this issue.
We'll keep you updated.

A federal judge today blocked a last-minute rule enacted by President
Bush allowing visitors to national parks to carry concealed weapons.
U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly issued a preliminary
injunction in a lawsuit brought by gun-control advocates and
environmental groups. The Justice Department had sought to block the
injunction against the controversial rule.
The three groups that brought the suit -- the Brady Campaign to
Prevent Gun Violence, the National Parks Conservation Association and
the Coalition of National Park Service Retires -- argued the Bush
Administration violated several laws in issuing the rule.
In her ruling, Kollar-Kotelly agreed that the government's process had
been "astoundingly flawed."
The regulation took effect Jan. 9 and allowed visitors to carry loaded
concealed guns into national parks and wildlife refuges. In the past,
they had been allowed in such areas only if they were unloaded, stored
