More Law Suits to Stop National Park Rule Change

The National Parks Conservation Association and the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees jumped on board to stop enforcement of the new regulation allowing firearms in national parks. National Parks Conservation Association President Tom Kiernan says the administration did not comply with the law in making the rule change because they did not "offer adequate reasons for doing so." The Association also said the Department of the Interior did not conduct an analysis of the rule's environmental effects, as required by the National Environmental Policy Act, including the effects of the rule on threatened and endangered species.

I guess concealed carry permit holders who might carry in a national park are going to target endangered species in their poaching activities - not just Bambi and Smokey Bear.
