Why This Is Important

This is of great importance because its effects will greatly impact the economy of Hatteras Island and the experience of visitors from all over the nation. This Recreational Seashore was set aside and dedicated “for the benefit and enjoyment of the American People”. With the new “rule” in place, an enormous loss of income will occur on Hatteras and Ocracoke islands as a result of closures and new restrictions. These new restrictions will have the effect of limiting commerce within the National Park Service fostered, tourism based, economies now extant within the eight villages surrounded by the Seashore. The Park Service was twice tasked with creating a rule for ORV use within the Seashore, and twice they failed. What they seek to do now is to “un-develop” the Seashore, that which Congress stated “which shall be developed for such uses (recreational) as needed” (16 USC459 sec.3) And they do so in violation of law wherein congress directs them not to conduct an activity in derogation of the mission established by congress for this area without “direct and specific” authorization from the Congress. (16 USC459 sec.1a-1) It is time to return this Seashore to the people to whom it belongs and put an end to the bureaucratic nightmare that will destroy the lives of the residents of the islands and change forever the mission given NPS by congress.

Signed & done!

This should also be applied to the Two Mile Beach Unit (the beach in Diamond Beach south of Wildwood Crest) of the USFWS's Cape May Refuge. Chasing people fishing & walking from the beach with glock 19's and AR-15 rifles is ridiciulus! :nuts:

signed and delivered. Just to clarify, donations can also be made to CHAPA which is the organization that filed the lawsuit.
