“President Obama signed a bill on Friday that makes it tougher for credit card issuers to raise fees and interest rates….The law also includes an unrelated measure allowing people to carry guns into national parks.”
What is really nice is that the legislation has the potential to be better than the original executive policy change that President George W. Bush enacted. So the gun control groups (ie: Brady and folk), may have actually lost yardage on this issue. Some have noted that the new legislation simply applies the states laws to carry and not just conceal carry. So in places like Arizona and Pennsylvania we may have gained open carry as well.
However, I have heard that there are some differences in wording between the Senate and House versions. And we’ll have to see how those are hashed out.
I am not sure when it actually goes into effect, but it’s a nice win for us. For an area that was supposed to be politically dead. We’re sure doing well…
– DC vs Heller Win
– 9th Circuit (yes, those left coast folks) incorporate DC vs Heller
– Restoration of right to carry in National Parks
Hopefully we’ll see a national carry right win not too far down the road. And be able to keep them afraid enough NOT to bring back an AWB.

Per Snowflakes in Hell it looks like we have to wait until February 22nd, 2010 to enjoy our rights.
