"Motorists Protection Act" Moves to Senate Floor in Louisiana

Friday, April 25, 2008

Make Your Voice Heard Today! 

On Thursday, April 24, the Senate Committee on Transportation, Highways & Public Works unanimously reported out Senate Bill 51.   

SB 51, sponsored by State Senator Joe McPherson (D-Woodworth), 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 locked 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!  

The full Senate will consider the measure next week.  It is critical that you contact your State Senator today and respectfully urge him or her to support this important measure.  Please also contact the State Senators listed below and ask that they too support SB51.  To find contact information for your State Senator please click here.
