Louisiana: Once Again, House Committee Scheduled to Hear Bill to Repeal Self-Defense Law this Tuesday

Friday, May 2, 2014

This coming Tuesday, May 6, the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee will consider House Bill 826.  Sponsored by state Representative Wesley Bishop (D-New Orleans), NRA-opposed HB 826 would repeal Louisiana's "stand your ground" statute and tip the scales in favor of criminals who attack law-abiding citizens in public.  Make no mistake, this is a direct assault on your right to self-defense outside of your home, vehicle or place of business.

Under current law, a person who is engaged in a lawful activity and who is in a place where he or she has a right to be, does not have a duty to retreat from a violent attack.  He or she may meet force with force, including deadly force -- but only if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm.

Don't let anti-gun state lawmakers put forward misinformation and strip away your self-defense rights - here's what you can do to help defeat HB 826:

Using the contact information provided below, please call AND e-mail members of the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee and politely urge them to OPPOSE HB 826.  Additionally, messages can be left for all state Representatives at the state Capitol during the week by calling (225) 342-6945.
