      All members should be aware that on the war supplemental there is a rider that restores the right to carry firearms in National Parks, a big issue for supporters of the 2nd Amendment. This is the same Dept of Interior rule that was implemented in the waning days of the last administration, and was stayed by a 9th Circuit judge (big surprise).

      So please contact your Senators and urge the inclusion of this rider. Brady and her crowd are on the march, you can be sure. More information can be found on the NRA website.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
