Louisiana: Right-to-Carry Reform Needs Your Support

Monday, April 26, 2010

On Tuesday, April 27, the Senate Judiciary B Committee will hold a hearing on Senate Bill 81 at 9:30AM in Room E.  This legislation, introduced by State Senator Daniel Martiny (R-10), would exempt concealed carry permit holders from the 1,000 foot “Gun Free School Zone.”  State Representative Ernest Wooton (R-105) introduced the companion bill, House Bill 556, which is scheduled to be heard by the Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice Wednesday, April 28, at 9:30AM in room HCR-6. 

State law prohibits any individual from possessing a firearm within approximately a quarter mile of any school property, even concealed carry permit licensees. An individual does not have to know that they’re within the 1000 foot zone and the penalty for violation of this statute is a felony.

Although the current state prohibition does not apply to possession of a firearm on or in private property (e.g. home, automobile, land, or place of business), it has very real impact on law-abiding Louisianans’ ability to protect themselves and their families in everyday situations, such as walking the dog or walking home at night from work.

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary B Committee and the House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice TODAY!  Respectfully urge them to support SB 81 and HB 556.  Contact information for the committee members is listed below.
