I happened to come across this (see below) and was wondering what three Nationanl Parks are you NOT allowed to conceal carry in? I'm thinking that they must be in the Washington DC area but haven't found it listed. Does anyone know which three they are? I may not agree with everything our President does, but this one I do.


Concealed carry in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (section 2.5)



On May 22, 2009, President Barack Obama signed H.R. 627, the "Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009," into law. The bill contained an amendment introduced by Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) that prohibits the Secretary of the Interior from enacting or enforcing any regulations that restrict possession of firearms in National Parks or Wildlife Refuges, as long as the person complies with laws of the state in which the unit is found.[44] This provision was supported by the National Rifle Association and opposed by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the National Parks Conservation Association, and the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees, among other organizations.[45][46] As of February 2010 concealed handguns are for the first time legal in all but 3 of the nation's 391 national parks and wildlife refuges so long as all applicable federal, state, and local regulations are adhered to.[47] Previously firearms were allowed into parks non-concealed and unloaded.

I doubt he did something right, he probably signed it without reading it and we got lucky enough to slip one by good ol Barrack Obottom as my 6 year old calls him.

Just a reminder, you cannot carry in any buidling in the National Park system. No CC in Federal buildings.

Good bet the "White House" is one ofthe 3 off limits parks.
