Crapo Seeks To Bolster Gun Rights

Idaho Senator Mike Crapo today introduced legislation to reaffirm the Second Amendment rights of Idahoans.  The bill seeks to make firearm regulations consistent across federal lands by allowing law-abiding citizens to carry firearms on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) property.  Under current law, a person may carry a concealed weapon in a National Park or Refuge as long as individuals comply with the firearm laws of the park’s home state.  However, the same rights are not extended to Americans who hunt, camp or fish on land owned by the Corps, effectively denying them of their Second Amendment freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution when on Corps lands/Mike Crapo press release.
