Bill to Allow Louisianans to Carry Firearms in State Parks Needs Your Help!

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

A new federal law took effect February 22 allowing possession and carrying of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges, in accordance with state law.  However, because the new federal law does not preempt any state ban, this important change cannot take effect in Louisiana until state law is changed to allow the possession of firearms in state parks.

On Thursday, May 6, the Senate Natural Resources Committee will hear Senate Bill 534.  Senator Troy Hebert (I-22) introduced this bill which would allow possession and transportation of any lawfully-owned firearm in state parks, state historic sites, state preservation areas and other areas controlled by the Office of State Parks.  This important change would benefit Louisiana gun owners when they visit both state and federal lands in Louisiana.

Please contact the members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee and respectfully ask them to support SB 534.
