Louisiana: Gun Ban Hearing Re-Scheduled, Campus Carry Bill Passes in Committee

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Please Continue to Contact the Members of the House Committee on Administration of Justice!

The House Committee on Administration of Justice will hear House Bill 387 on Tuesday, May 19.  HB 387 was originally scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, May 12 but was delayed due to a full legislative calendar.  This bill, sponsored by Cedric L. Richmond (D-101), is just another 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 would establish far-reaching restrictions on semi-automatic firearms (describing them as "assault weapons") and ammunition magazines.  Essentially, HB 387 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.

Yesterday, on a more positive note, House Bill 27 passed the Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice by a 9-6 vote.  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.  A Floor vote has not been scheduled at this time.

Please contact the members of the House Committee on Administration of Justice and respectfully urge them to oppose HB 387.  To contact them, please call (225) 342-6945 or use their e-mail addresses listed below. You can also begin contacting the House of Representatives and voice your support for HB 27.  You can find your Representative and their contact information by clicking here.
