Rhetoric About Right To Carry In National Parks

In a recent article about the Fort Hunt/Gravelly Point Open Carry rallies the author implies that (p)Resident Soetoro gave (returned?) Americans the right to lawfully carry firearms in National Parks.

This is a very narrow interpretation of the prospects of the bill which was signed into law and went into effect on February 22, 2010. The bill which this amendment was added as a rider was a Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act which, among other things, includes language prohibiting card companies from raising interest rates on existing balances unless the borrower pays at least 60 days late and, on cards with more than one interest rate, issuers will have to apply payments above the minimum first to the debts with the highest rates.

The fact that many supporters of Barack Hussein Obama scream "irony" over the armed protest as it could only be held because the bill was signed into law are missing the point. The law does not permit carry of firearms in National Parks. The law states that National Parks shall abide by the laws of the states in which they are located. The irony is that since Washington D.C. outlaws most forms of carry of firearms the event still could not take place on the National Mall. The event could also not be held anywhere in Maryland and still be lawful.

That Virginia has some of the best (read: least infringing) firearms laws in the country only lent itself to the logical conclusion that a Virginia-side National Park be utilized for our protest.

So the one useful thing that the usurper has done since assuming the (p)Residency (as he is not lawfully eligible to hold said office) is to sign a bill intended to aid consumers and NOT VETO it based on the partial-gun-rights-restoring rider that was tacked on.
