Today the US House just approved legislation that Reuters reports will "curb sudden credit card interest rate hikes and hidden fees." This law is important for many Americans who need relief from credit card companies who have taken advantage of the system for years, HOWEVER Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) saw this an opportunity to SNEAK in a provision that allows people to carry guns in nation parks.
It is absolutely ridiculous to exploit credit card reform by adding this amendment to the legislation. It put lawmakers in a bind, either vote for the entire bill, which includes the gun provision, or look like you don't care about helping out working Americans.
If there is an increase in gun violence at our national parks Sen. Coburn will have blood on his hands.
