Dave Kopel: Second Amendment May Be Restored to Army Corps of Engineers Land

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reconsidering a Nixon-era regulation that bans most firearms and ammunition on recreational lands in over 400 lake and river projects covering 12 million acres in 43 states. Some hunting is allowed on some land. A lawsuit by the Mountain State Legal Foundation prevailed against the regulation in Idaho in 2014. The Obama administration appealed the decision to the Ninth Circuit Court. Dave Kopel of the Independence Institute says that the Corps has now requested that the case be put into mediation, saying that reconsidering their policy on lands, but not buildings, could resolve the dispute.
