This was started by the thread about Berlin. As a result of that thread I had contacted several organizations in February to push legislation to override the Corp Commanders Policy.
The current policy is:
Quote from the park Pamphlet. "Firearms and ammunition
The US Army Corps of Engineers does not
honor State-issued concealed weapon permits,
prohibits loaded concealed weapons, the
possession of loaded firearms or ammunition on
lands and waters administered by the US Army
Corps of Engineers per 36 C.F.R. § 327.13(a)."
The NRA is also involved.
Below is a message I received Saturday. May 7th.
Just want to give you a heads up that legislation to correct this issue will be introduced soon in Congress. Expect to see a story on our site in the next week asking for co-sponsors.
