Bill to Allow Louisianans to Carry Firearms in State Parks Rescheduled!

Friday, May 7, 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.

The original hearing scheduled for May 6 has been moved to Thursday, May 13, where the Senate Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing on Senate Bill 534.  State 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 continue to contact the members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee and respectfully ask them to support SB 534.  Contact information can be found here.
