APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

State Park Carry Bill Scheduled to be Heard on June 3 in Louisiana!

Friday, May 28, 2010

Last week the Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 534, which would bring Louisiana into agreement with a recently passed federal law that allows the carrying and possession of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges in accordance with applicable state carry laws. 

SB534, introduced by State Senator Troy Hebert (I-22), would allow possession and transportation of any lawfully-owned firearm in state parks, state historic sites, state preservation areas, wildlife refuges, wildlife management areas and other areas controlled by the Office of State Parks.  This important change would benefit Louisiana gun owners when they visit state parks, national parks and wildlife refuges in Louisiana. SB534 would bring Louisiana in line with the new Federal law that went into effect on February 22. 

SB534 sits in the Administration of Criminal Justice Committee where it is scheduled to be heard at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 3 in HCR-6. 

Please contact the members of the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT SB534.
