Louisiana Action Needed: Gun Control Bills Scheduled for Consideration Next Week

Next Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary B Committee is scheduled to hear anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 185.  Please contact the Senate Judiciary B committee and urge them to be present and vote in opposition to this bill.

Senate Bill 185, sponsored by Sen. Wesley Bishop (D-4), would allow local municipalities throughout the state to pass their own gun control laws, creating a patchwork of different laws from parrish to parrish or city to city.  It eliminates the authority of state laws over local ordinances and regulations.  Firearm preemption laws ensure that fundamental rights are not diluted or distorted through local ordinances and prevents a confusing patchwork of regulations which make it difficult for otherwise law-abiding citizens to follow the law.  Further, citizens in one city deserve the same rights and powers as citizens in the neighboring town.

*****

As early as Monday, Senate Bill 491 is expected to be considered on the Senate Floor.  Please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 491 when it comes up for a vote.

Senate Bill 491, sponsored by Sen. Troy Carter (D-7), bans the importation, manufacture, sale, purchase, possession, or transfer of bump stocks and other “rapid-fire” devices.  The broad and overreaching language could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Please contact your state Senator at 225-342-2040 and urge them to vote against SB 491. To locate who represents you, please click here.
