After passing in the state House and Senate respectively, House Bill 489 and Senate Bill 39  now await Governor Bobby Jindal’s signature to become law. 

 

SB 39, sponsored by state Senators Eric LaFleur (D-28) and Neil Riser (R-32), would clarify that Louisianans may purchase a long gun in any state, and allow a citizen of any other state to purchase a long gun in Louisiana, so long as both states allow such purchases. 

 

HB 489, introduced by state Representative Alan Seabaugh (R-5), would remove the requirement that an individual must wait six months to acquire “resident” status to apply for a concealed handgun permit. 

 

Please contact Governor Jindal and urge him to sign SB 39 and HB 489 into law.  Governor Jindal can be e-mailed by clicking here.

Governor Jindal has already signed two pro-gun bills: House Bill 169 and House Bill 294

HB 169, introduced by state Representative Cameron Henry (R-82), will allow Louisianans to use firearms fitted with lawfully-possessed sound suppressors while hunting nongame nuisance quadrupeds, including feral hogs, coyotes, armadillos, nutria and beaver.  Sound suppressors reduce noise complaints, recoil, and hearing loss while increasing accuracy. 

HB 294, introduced by state Representative Major Thibaut (D-18), will remove the requirement to acquire a special permit to trap feral hogs and remove the limitation on the types of firearms used for hunting nongame nuisance quadrupeds including feral hogs, coyotes, armadillos, nutria, and beaver.
