The Obama Administration has decided not to appeal a federal court decision striking down an Interior Department rule allowing concealed carry in National Parks. A federal district court had voided the rule due to the government's failure to conduct an environmental impact statement, or even an environmental assessment, before adopting the rule. According to the NYT, the Administration is "not completely discarding the Bush rule and that officials intended to complete an environmental impact statement on the possible effects of the rule, as well as a range of alternatives."
