Legislation to Ban “Assault Weapons” Pending in Louisiana House!

Friday, April 27, 2007

 

The Legislature will convene for its 2007 Regular Session on Monday, April 30. 

 

State Representative Cedric Richmond (D-New Orleans) has introduced House Bill 869, which would establish far-reaching restrictions on semi-automatic firearms (dubbing them "assault weapons") and ammunition magazines.  HB 869 affects every firearm modified to conform with the now-extinct fClinton Gun-Ban plus many other semi-automatic firearms that have no lineage to those rifles or any military-style orientation whatsoever. 

 

Like the failed Clinton Gun-Ban that sunset in 2004, this bill is about demonizing certain firearms based on how they look, not about crime fighting.  But unlike the previous federal law, which banned the manufacture and sale of many commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms to civilians after the effective date of the act, HB 869 goes much further.  HB 869 would require current owners of such firearms to register their firearms with the State Police, obtain and renew a license annually to keep them, restrict how and where they may be used or transported, and allow the State Police to inspect private homes for compliance.  HB 869 has been referred to the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee. 

 

Please contact the committee members below next week in Baton Rouge and urge them to oppose HB 869:
