Secretary Salazar Calls for Review Of Gun Rules in National Parks
The rule change to allow national park visitors to arm themselves is starting to develop an administrative life of its own much like the Yellowstone snowmobile issue.
The latest news is that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has asked the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to spend three months looking into the environmental consequences of allowing national park visitors to arm themselves.
This review will be conducted against the backdrop of a legal battle over the rule change.
