                                       ___________
 
        Introduced by M. of A. ENGLEBRIGHT, PAULIN, JAFFEE, O'DONNELL, L. ROSEN-
          THAL -- Multi-Sponsored by -- M. of A. GLICK -- read once and referred
          to the Committee on Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Development
 
        AN  ACT to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, in
          relation to  prohibiting  the  possession  of  concealed  firearms  in
          national parks and national wildlife refuge systems
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that the
     2  national parks and national wildlife refuge systems  in  the  state  are
     3  attractive  places for citizens of all ages to safely enjoy the benefits
     4  of healthy and safe outdoor activity. The legislature further finds that
     5  the presence of concealed firearms in national parks and national  wild-
     6  life  refuge  systems  represents  an unnecessary threat, whether inten-
     7  tional or unintentional, to the health and safety of citizens invited to
     8  enjoy these public recreational opportunities as well  as  the  wildlife
     9  preserved  within such recreation areas. Therefore, it is the purpose of
    10  the legislature to protect the health, safety and welfare of the  public
    11  and prohibit the possession of a concealed firearm in all national parks
    12  and national wildlife refuge systems, except as specifically provided by
    13  law.
    14    § 2. The parks, recreation and historic preservation law is amended by
    15  adding a new section 13.32 to read as follows:
    16    §  13.32  Prohibition  of  concealed  firearms  in  national parks and
    17  national wildlife refuge systems.  1. Except as provided in this section
    18  and otherwise specifically permitted in law, no  person,  other  than  a
    19  member  of  a federal, state or municipal law enforcement agency author-
    20  ized to carry a concealed firearm, shall introduce  or  possess,  either
    21  upon  his  or  her person or within a vehicle or other place of storage,
    22  any concealed firearm in any national park or national  wildlife  refuge
    23  system.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD02627-01-9

        A. 3353                             2
 
     1    2. The prohibition in subdivision one of this section shall not apply:
     2    (a) to the extent the firearm is used in connection with hunting where
     3  authorized by state and federal law; and
     4    (b) to privately owned residences within any national park or national
     5  wildlife refuge system.

     7  civil penalty not to exceed one thousand dollars.

     9  ing the date on which it shall have become a law.
