On Tuesday, March 10, Senate Bill 296, sponsored by State Senator Scott Beason (R-17), passed the full Senate by a unanimous vote of 24 to 0.
SB296 would protect our Second Amendment rights by prohibiting any government agency from confiscating firearms or regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms during a state of emergency, such as occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. SB 296 now moves to the House where it awaits a committee assignment.
As we previously reported, House Bill 225, the companion bill to SB296, was passed unanimously by the House on Thursday, February 19. HB225 is still waiting to be assigned to a Senate committee.
