Sen. Crapo Bill Would Protect 2A Rights on Federal Lands

Sen. Crapo Bill Would Protect 2A Rights on Federal LandsU.S. Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) introduced the NSSF-supported S. 2948, the Recreational Lands Defense Act, to restore Second Amendment rights of individuals recreating on lands managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. “The inability to carry firearms on Corps land is inconsistent with regulations governing public, federally-owned lands, and a violation of the intent of the Second Amendment,” Sen. Crapo said according to a press release. “Enabling Americans to carry firearms on land managed by the Corps will allow law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and provide needed consistency across federal lands to reduce the complexity of tracking where one federal agency’s land management ends and another’s begins.” Currently, firearms may be carried on lands managed by the Interior and Agriculture Departments, including National Parks and National Forests, as long as it is consistent with state law. The Recreational Lands Defense Act would treat Army Corps land in the same manner, allowing parity on nearly 12 million acres of Army Corps recreation lands. It would not change current legal prohibition of guns in federal facilities.
