APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Your Support Is Critical With Emergency Powers Legislation In Louisiana!

Friday, April 7, 2006

On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary C Committee reported out SB 93 by Senator Joe McPherson (D-29), NRA-backed legislation amending the state’s emergency powers act to prohibit the seizure and confiscation of legally possessed firearms in the unfortunate event of another natural disaster in the State of Louisiana. 

The full Senate could vote the bill on as early as Monday afternoon. 

Please email and call your State Senators on Monday morning and urge them to support SB 93.  

Although an official agenda had not been posted as when this alert went to print, it is expected the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee may hold hearings on the House versions of measures to end New Orleans-style gun confiscations during a state of emergency: HB 36 by Representative Pete Schneider (R-90), HB 136 by Representative Troy Hebert (D-49), HB 172 by Representative Danny Martiny (R-79) and HB 760 by Representative Steve Scalise (R-82).  

Please email and call the members of the committee and urge them to support these measures. 

The committee normally meets on Wednesday and Thursday mornings in Room 6 of the State Capitol.  To contact your state lawmakers, check the committee’s schedule and agenda, and for a list of committee members, call the PULS line at 225-342-2456 (from the Baton Rouge area) or 800-256-3793 (outside the Baton Rouge area) or visit http://senate.legis.state.la.us/Senators, http://house.louisiana.gov/; and http://www.legis.state.la.us/
