National Park Service April 30, 2008 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

General Regulations for Areas Administered by the National Park Service and the Fish and Wildlife Service
Document Number: E8-9606
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-04-30
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The Department of the Interior, through the National Park Service and the Fish and Wildlife Service, proposes to amend regulations presently codified in 36 CFR part 2 and 50 CFR part 27, which provide guidance and controls for the possession and transportation of firearms in national park areas and national wildlife refuges. The proposed amendments would update the regulations to reflect current state laws authorizing the possession of concealed firearms, while maintaining the existing regulatory provisions that ensure visitor safety and resource protection such as the prohibitions on poaching and limitations on hunting and target practice.
