Louisiana: Gun Control Measures Introduced in Louisiana Legislature

Please contact committee members in opposition!

The Louisiana Legislature convened for its 2016 Regular Session on Monday, March 14.  Last week, NRA-ILA reported that important pro-self-defense measures were pre-filed in advance of session.  Several restrictive anti-gun (and anti-private property rights) bills have also been introduced.  All four of these bills have been referred to the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee.  Please contact the members of the committee and politely urge them to OPPOSE these restrictive measures!  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact the committee members with your opposition! 

House Bill 69, sponsored by state Representative John Bagneris (D-New Orleans), would create the crime of unlawfully purchasing or selling firearms from or by a licensed dealer without a 10-day waiting period from purchase to delivery.  While exceptions are made for concealed carry license holders and law enforcement, the waiting period would apply to all other firearms transfers.

House Bill 101 and House Bill 102, both sponsored by state Representative Barbara Norton (D-Shreveport), respectively, would create the offense of operating a motion picture theater without a metal detector or other electronic screening process for detecting firearms and would make it unlawful to carry a firearm for self-defense on the premises of a motion picture theater.  

House Bill 693, sponsored by state Representative Jimmy Harris (D-New Orleans), would expand "gun free zones" to include property used as a public park, playground or recreational facility -- including municipal parks, state parks operated by the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and many other areas that could be closed off, without effective notice, to those otherwise lawfully carrying firearms for personal protection.
