BC-US--Guns-National Parks,0088 Senate votes to allow guns in national parks Eds: APNewsNow; will be led. With BC-US--Congress-Credit Cards By MATTHEW DALY Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate has voted to allow people to carry loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., sponsored the measure, which would restore a Bush administration policy allowing loaded guns in national parks.

A federal judge blocked the policy in March, and the Obama administration declined to file an appeal.

The gun amendment was attached to a bill imposing restrictions on credit card companies. The bill was approved 90-5.
The measure now goes to the House, where approval is expected.
