Unintended, meet consequences

Republicans pushed an addition to the just-passed credit-card bill that permits people to carry guns in national parks.

One of which is the White House.


  1. The Coburn amemndment should be moot, at least with regard to this particular National Park, inasmuch as the guy, Dick Heller, who won his case before the SCOTUS, was subsequently denied a gun permit by the DC government. I suspect that anyone attempting to carry a gun onto the White House grounds would find themselves eating concrete. I don’t know if any CCPs have been issued in the District to date.

  2. Oh, I’m sure no one would ever have been allowed to carry a firearm into the White House. I just thought it was kind of funny that our congresscritters, most of whom have visited a time or two, apparently didn’t know.
