On Thursday, April 24, the Senate Transportation, Highways & Public Works Committee will consider Senate Bill 51, the NRA-backed "Motorists' Protection Act" sponsored by State Senator Joe McPherson (D-Woodworth). SB 51 would clarify that current state law allowing Louisianans the right to protect themselves, and to possess lawfully owned firearms in their private motor vehicles, would supercede policies adopted by business owners or employers prohibiting the transportation or storage of guns in cars and trucks parked in their parking lots. Similar legislation has already passed in Mississippi, Georgia and Florida, and now your help is needed to pass it in Louisiana! Please contact the members of the Senate Transportation, Highways & Public Works Committee, and urge them to support this important measure.
