    Your mother.
    Since the Brady Campaign can stoop so low to achieve an end, they must =

    be fantastic at limbo.
    They are suing, hoping to overturn the recent change in National Park
    regulations that will allow concealed handgun permit holders to carry
    concealed in National Parks staring January 9th.
    Ah, the lies and bending of facts they use to try to stop citizens
    from protecting themselves:
    * Brady Campaign says that the Bush Administration rushed to change
    the regulation on carrying concealed handguns in National Parks at the =

    last minute. Baloney - VCDL started working publicly on the change to =

    the National Park regulations over FOUR YEARS ago. The government
    wheels turned slowly, finally producing a result in November. The
    public and the Brady Campaign knew this change was coming for a very
    long time. The Brady Campaign, in desperation, is also claiming that
    the White House can't override one of its OWN directives on when rule
    changes can go into effect.
    * Brady Campaign says the regulation is in violation of federal law
    because DOI didn't do an environmental review before implementing the
    rule change. WHAT?! How does someone carrying a concealed handgun,
    but not shooting it, have ANY impact on the environment one way or the =

    other? I would question their logic, but that would be to imply that
    they were indeed capable of logical thinking. DOI did look at whether =

    an environmental review was needed and decided, correctly, that there
    was no environmental impact to look at.
    They say their members won't go to a National Park now for fear of
    concealed handgun permit holders committing crimes. This is the same
    kind of fear mongering hogwash they have repeatedly used to fight
    efforts to liberalize state concealed carry laws. They would claim
    there'd be blood in the streets if concealed carry passed. Guess
    what? It didn't happen! But that hasn't stopped them from using the
    same old fear mongering again and again and again. Are their members
    curled up in the fetal position in their homes, afraid to venture out
    because a law abiding citizen might be legally carrying a concealed
    handgun in a public place? If they are, they need some serious
    psychological help, not a gun ban.
    The number of members the Brady Campaign has is miniscule at best - no =

    one would be able to tell if they are indeed boycotting National
    Parks. ;-)

    Group sues to reinstate firearms ban
    By JESSE J. HOLLAND
    WASHINGTON (AP) =97 The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence sued the =

    Bush administration Tuesday in hopes of stopping a new policy that
    would allow people to carry concealed, loaded guns in most national
    parks and wildlife refuges.
    "The Bush administration's last-minute gift to the gun lobby, allowing =

    concealed semiautomatic weapons in national parks, jeopardizes the
    safety of park visitors in violation of federal law," said Paul
    Helmke, the group's president. "We should not be making it easier for
    dangerous people to carry concealed firearms in our parks."
    An Interior Department spokeswoman refused to comment on the lawsuit,
    saying the department does not discuss pending litigation.

    The Brady Campaign sued the Interior Department and its secretary,
    Dirk Kempthorne, as well as the leaders of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
    Service and the National Park Service in U.S. District Court. They
    want a federal judge to issue an immediate injunction stopping the
    elimination of the 25-year-old federal rule that severely restricts
    loaded guns in national parks.
    The Interior Department rule overturns a Reagan-era regulation that
    has restricted loaded guns in parks and wildlife refuges. The previous =

    regulation required that firearms be unloaded and placed somewhere
    that is not easily accessible, such as in a car trunk.
    But under a rule to take effect in January, visitors will be able to
    carry a loaded gun into a park or wildlife refuge =97 but only if the
    person has a permit for a concealed weapon and if the state where the
    park or refuge is located also allows concealed firearms.
    The rules change would take effect before President-elect Barack Obama =

    takes office in January. Overturning the rule would take months or
    even years if the Obama administration wanted to, since it would
    require the new administration to restart the lengthy rule-making
    process.
    The lawsuit said members of the Brady Campaign will no longer visit
    national parks and refuges "out of fear for their personal safety from =

    those who will now be permitted to carry loaded and concealed weapons
    in such areas."

    Here is the Brady Campaign's press release:

    Brady Campaign Sues Interior Department Over Rule Allowing Concealed
    Guns in Parks, Will Seek Court Injunction
    WASHINGTON, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Brady Campaign to
    Prevent Gun Violence today filed suit in federal court asking that the
    court strike down a last-minute Bush Administration rule change
    allowing concealed, loaded firearms in national parks and wildlife
    refuges.

    The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of
    Columbia, and seeks an injunction to block the rule, which is
    scheduled to go into effect on January 9, 2009.

    "The Bush Administration's last-minute gift to the gun lobby, allowing
    concealed semiautomatic weapons in national parks, jeopardizes the
    safety of park visitors in violation of federal law," said Brady
    Campaign President Paul Helmke. "We should not be making it easier for
    dangerous people to carry concealed firearms in our parks."

    Attorneys with the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence's Legal Action
    Project and the law firm Ropes & Gray in Washington, D.C. are
    representing the Brady Campaign in this case. To read the complaint,
    go to www.bradycenter.org/xshare/pdf/kempthorne-complaint.pdf.
    The rule will allow guns in rural and urban national park areas around
    the country, from Wyoming's Yellowstone and California's Yosemite to
    Philadelphia's Independence National Historical Park, home of the
    Liberty Bell. The suit was filed on behalf of the Brady Campaign and
    its members, including school teachers in the New York and Washington,
    D.C. areas who are canceling or curtailing school trips to Ellis
    Island and the Statue of Liberty and the National Mall in Washington,
    D.C. now that the Bush Administration will be allowing guns in these
    national park areas.


    The suit charges that the Interior Department violated several federal
    laws in its rush to implement the rule before President Bush leaves
    office, including failing to conduct any environmental review of the
    harm that the rule will cause, as is required by the National
    Environmental Policy Act. The Department also violated a White House
    directive that no rules should be issued after November 1, 2008,
    except in "extraordinary circumstances," issuing the last-minute rule
    change on December 10, 2008. The rule also violates the National Park
    Service Organic Act and the National Wildlife Refuge System
    Administration Act, which created the parks and wildlife refuges as
    protected lands for safe enjoyment of all visitors.

    Rules in place since the Reagan Administration have allowed visitors
    to transport guns in national parks and wildlife refuges if they are
    unloaded and stored or dismantled. These restrictions have helped make
    these areas some of the safest places to visit in the country. Yet at
    the behest of the gun lobby, the Interior Department announced earlier
    this year that it planned to allow concealed firearms in national
    parks and wildlife refuges. Concealed carrying will be allowed in
    every state that allows concealed carrying, even if the state
    specifically bans the practice in state parks. Only Illinois and
    Wisconsin prohibit concealed carrying.

    Numerous studies have confirmed that concealed carrying of firearms
    does not reduce crime and, if anything, leads to increased violent
    crime. Experience in states that have allowed concealed carrying of
    firearms has shown that thousands of dangerous people are able to get
    licenses. In Florida, for example, more than 4,200 licenses were
    revoked because many of these licensees committed a crime. Since
    becoming the first state to allow the concealed carrying of firearms
    in 1987, Florida consistently has had one of the highest rates of
    violent crime in the nation. Florida has been ranked as the state with
    the highest annual violent crime rate more often than any other state
    in the last two decades.

    As the nation's largest, non-partisan, grassroots organization leading
    the fight to prevent gun violence, the Brady Campaign, with its
    dedicated network of Million Mom March Chapters, works to enact and
    enforce sensible gun laws, regulations and public policies. The Brady
    Campaign is devoted to creating an America free from gun violence,
    where all Americans are safe at home, at school, at work, and in our
    communities.

    I hope the Brady Bunch relocates their main office to the center of the Yellowstone caldera so that when that son of a bitch blows, it sends them into outter fucking space.

    God. They're so stupid, it hurts.

    I don't have a problem with CCW holders not being allowed to carry in GUN FREE zones... Granted, if the only thing that makes it a "gun free zone" is a sign stating such, and criminals who wish to carry a gun can do so simply by disregarding sed sign, then I don't consider this a truly "gun free zone".... :)

    :bowrofl: Read the part of the Tec9 where it says the barrel shroud is there to allow the shooter to grasp the barrel without burning their hand. Let me fire a couple hundred rounds through a Tec9 and than let you grab the gun by the barrel shroud

    “An AK-47 fires a military round. In a conventional home with drywall
    walls, I wouldn’t be surprised if it went through six of them.”

    Do they not realize most hunting rifles fire rounds that are even more powerful than what "assault weapons" fire? :rofl:
