A number of anti-gun bills have been introduced in the House by Representative Cedric Richmond (D-New Orleans), including: HB 241, requiring the creation of a "ballistic imaging" database for every handgun sold in the state; HB 243, requiring all handguns to be registered with the state after purchase; HB 244, a Louisiana version of the Clinton gun ban, which actually affects more firearms and would require current owners of any gun falling under the ban to register them with the state and obtain a license to lawfully keep them; and HB 245, banning private firearms transfers at gun shows. The Legislature convenes on March 29. All of these measures have been referred to the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee. A list of committee members is available at http://house.louisiana.gov/H-Reps/cjcommittee.asp. Please contact committee members at (225) 342-6945 and urge them to oppose all of these bills.
