Obama Won't Appeal Guns-in-Parks Ruling

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says it will not
appeal a federal court ruling that prohibits carrying loaded guns
in national parks and wildlife refuges.

Instead, the Interior Department says it will conduct a full
environmental review of an earlier policy that allowed concealed,
loaded guns in parks and refuges.

A federal judge struck down the gun policy last month. The judge
said the policy, issued in the waning days of the Bush
administration, was severely flawed and that officials failed to
evaluate the possible environmental impacts of the rule change. The
judge set an April 20 deadline for the Interior Department to
indicate its likely response to her ruling.
