Concealed Carry

Dear Sir:

     This letter is in regard to input your dept. is seeking for new rules on guns in national parks. As a citizen I would like to weigh in on this subject. As a concealed carry permit holder from MA. I would like to see wording in these new proposed rules that would encompass all concealed carry permit holders from every state, bar none. Our Constitution already covers this plainly under Article lV, Section l, it reads , in part, “Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records and judicial proceedings of every other state”.

     Why then, should a legal gun permit holder, who is deemed an honest citizen by state ‘A’ be deemed unsuitable to carry concealed in state ‘B’ ? This is nonsensical. It could, and should be argued in court as an unconstitutional infringement when you come down to brass tacks. Under Article lV, Section l, every state already recognizes every other states drivers license, it is no stretch to include legally issued firearm concealed carry permits.

Sincerely, Mark Shean 6-20-2008

{Note; Update, as of 5-20-09 the Senate has voted to restore the Bush administration policy that allowed loaded guns in national parks. The House could pass it soon.}  Update: It is now law.
