Louisiana: Two Gun Bills to be Heard on Tuesday!

Friday, May 8, 2009

On Tuesday, May 12 at 9:00am in room HCR-6, the House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice will consider two very different bills pertaining to the Second Amendment. 

House Bill 387 is this years attempt to pass an “assault weapons” ban that continues to show a striking resemblance to the failed federal Clinton Semi-automatic gun ban that expired in 2004. HB 387, sponsored by Cedric L. Richmond (D-101), would establish far-reaching restrictions on semi-automatic firearms (describing them as "assault weapons") and ammunition magazines. Essentially, HB387 would ban many semi-automatic firearms that Louisianans use for self-defense, hunting, and shooting competitions.

HB 387 would also 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.

On the other end of the spectrum, the committee will also hear a positive and necessary self-defense reform bill House Bill 27.  Sponsored by State Representative Ernest Wooten (R-105), HB 27 would allow those with Concealed Handgun Licenses to carry a firearm for self-defense on college campuses.

Please contact the members of the Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice today and voice your opposition to House Bill 387 and your support for House Bill 27.   You may also attend the hearing in room HCR-6 at 9:00 a.m. and sign up in opposition to HB 387 and support of HB 27.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
