The scoop on the armed celebrity group

"The genius of concealed carry of handguns ... is in keeping thugs guessing as to who is armed and therefore who may fight back against their violent aggression. In Hollywood and in all celebrity-dom, you have your liberty purists, too, and some of them are fairly frank about their position in support of the armed citizen. What they carry and how they carry it isn't always announced, but their position sometimes is made known."

"Ted Nugent has said and written often that he supports the Second Amendment. He is most enthusiastic about it. Thanks, Ted."

"Does that mean what I think it does? The stated purpose was limited in scope to 'licensing for purchasers,' but the fine print includes guns currently owned?

"I guess if you're not going to let a little thing like 'shall not be infringed' bother you, why would Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution's proscription that 'No... ex post facto Law shall be passed' slow you down?"

"U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., is hoping to pass a firearm-licensing bill that will significantly rewrite gun-ownership laws in America."

"Among the more controversial provisions of the bill are requirements that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Further, the bill would order the attorney general to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner's address in America."

"The bill claims its purpose is 'to protect the public against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of firearms to criminals and youth.'"

"Columnist David Codrea of Guns Magazine, however, calls it a "ridiculous affront to liberty.'" ...

Yellowstone tangled up by new rule on guns

"Yellowstone National Park officials say disentangling disparate concealed-weapons laws of three states has left unanswered questions about implementing a Bush administration rule that began allowing guns in the park last week." ...

"The problem is that Yellowstone stretches across three states – Wyoming, Montana and Idaho – and those states' gun laws don't jibe. ..." ...

"Theoretically, a person with a ... permit from West Virginia could enter the park with a gun ... on trails from the Bechler region in Idaho legally. But he would break the law once he stepped across the state line into Wyoming."

"If he made it up just a few miles north of Mammoth, Montana ... the weapon would be legal again." ...

KABA Note: Of course none of this is really park rangers problem. All they need to know is the applicable law in their area. It is up to permit holders to stay legal. At least until the Second Amendment is treated as the highest law of the land, that is.
