Remember those "stupid" Bush proposals allowing firearms in national parks?

The credit-card bill (on its way to the president for signature) includes the Coburn amendment, which codifies the Bush regulatory proposals, and allows the carrying of firearms in national parks.

This is the National Rifle Association's biggest victory in a decade.

The amendment was attached with 67 votes in the Senate. See:

And, overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate will vote for the bill, pro gun amendment and all. Of course, Obama will sign it.

Is this another dumb idea that's only dumb when proposed by Bush?
