Dicks Being a Dick

Rep. Norm Dicks may derail the National Parks rule change:

Dicks vows to block bid to lift ban on loaded weapons in national parks WASHINGTON – With a showdown looming, U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks says he’s prepared to block any effort by the administration to lift the current ban on carrying loaded weapons in national parks.

It’s not an idle threat.

As chairman of the House Appropriations interior subcommittee, Dicks oversees the National Parks Service’s annual budget and is in a position to prevent the administration from dropping the Reagan-era ban. While the Washington Democrat is usually reluctant to add legislative provisions to his spending bill, he is ready to make an exception in this case even if it prompts a presidential veto.

Remember this when the Democrats try to tell you how much they support the second amendment this fall. I have a great deal of respect for our staunch pro-gun Democrats like Dan Boren, John Tester, Rich Boucher, and many others, but the fact is they are part of a party who promotes leadership that are actively hostile to the rights of gun owners.  We are not talking about arming people in National Parks here, simply making National Parks compliant follow whatever rules the states want to put in place on the matter of firearms.  Right now, I can be arrested if I travel through a National Park on the way to shoot somewhere else.  That’s not right.  It should be changed.

    National Parks are becoming killing fields where unarmed people are subjected to attack by both two-legged and four-legged predators. Democrats like it that way.
