allowed this amendment to pass, as well as in President Obama. By not
taking a stand to prevent this change, they have sacrificed public
safety and national park resources in favor of the political agenda of
the National Rifle Association. This amendment had no hearing or review,
and will increase the risk of poaching, vandalism of historic park
treasures, and threats to park visitors and staff.
These are special protected places, where millions of American
families and international visitors can view magnificent animals and
majestic landscapes and experience our nation’s history, including
sites where lives were lost to preserve our American ideals.
