    Thanks to a 279-147 vote Wednesday in the House of Representatives, visitors to the nation's parks and wildlife refuges will be able to carry weapons there if they abide by state weapons laws. The bill is on its way to President Barack Obama, who faces a dilemma: Gun rights advocates attached the provision to a sweeping overhaul of the credit card industry, an initiative Obama strongly supports, so he has little choice but to let the gun section become law.

    Gun control advocates howled Wednesday, but to little effect.

    I want to howl too. I couldn't agree more with the legislation, but I couldn't disagree more with how it was slipped into an unrelated bill. Legislators who do this kind of thing, why aren't their names made public?
    So does this mean the rabid right was incorrect in saying that the left wanted to take away everyone's guns?

    This isn't good news for the gun dealers, now sales will go down without the great "Take all your guns away Boogyman" to be afraid of.

    you can't target shoot,
    So?

    and you should not be shooting the other visitors.
    You can if they attack you.

    So, you were saying?

    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    If attacked, you can shoot the animals and visitors.

    So, try again.

    We're talking about this particular limit specifically.

    No doubt about it.
