The House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee was scheduled to hear arguments for House Bill 68 and House Bill 78, both sponsored by State Representative Cedric Richmond (D-New Orleans). Earlier today, Representative Richmond decided to pull both bills out of the committee and it is anticipated that they won’t be heard this session.
HB 68 would ban pump-action firearms as well as semi-automatics, and millions more firearms than the Clinton "assault weapons" ban of 1994-2004.
HB 78 would have created a limited ban on the possession of so called “assault weapons” by some people and open the door in the future to broader prohibitions.Thank you to the law-abiding, gun-owning community in Louisiana for all the emails and phone calls that stopped these egregious attacks on our rights from being heard!
