Louisiana Your Help is Needed to Protect the Second Amendment!

Monday, April 3, 2006

 

 

A bill protecting the Second Amendment of all Louisianans during a future

State of Emergency is up for a hearing tomorrow!

 

 

Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 4, the Senate Judiciary C Committee will hold a hearing on Senate Bill 93 by Senator Joe McPherson (D-29) at 1:30 pm in the State Capitol, Rooms A-B. In the months following Hurricane Katrina, NRA went to federal court and was able to obtain an order forcing the city of New Orleans to return seized firearms to their lawful owners.  SB 93 would prevent the New Orleans-style gun confiscations from law-abiding citizens in the future in case there is another natural disaster or state of emergency in Louisiana.  

 

Please call and email the following members of the Senate Judiciary C Committee this afternoon or Tuesday morning and urge them to SUPPORT SB 93! 

 

All Senators can be reached in Baton Rouge by calling 225-342-2040 locally, or using the PULS line if you're calling from outside Baton Rouge, 800-256-3793
