Louisiana: St. Charles Parish Council to Hear Park Carry Ban Ordinance

Louisiana: St. Charles Parish Council to Hear Park Carry Ban Ordinance

On Monday, October 3, the St. Charles Parish Council will hold a public hearing and possibly vote on Proposed Ordinance No. 2016-0342, introduced by Council President Larry Cochran.  The ordinance would ban the possession of loaded or unloaded firearms, ammunition, projectile firing devices, bows and arrows, crossbows, or other dangerous weapons in any public or recreational park located within the Parish.  Click the "Take Action" button below to contact parish council members in opposition to Ordinance No. 0342.

There’s a possibility that the ordinance may undergo revisions between now and Monday’s meeting.  However, as introduced, the restrictions being proposed would apply to concealed carry permit holders and to constitutionally-protected activities such as lawful open carry and the possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle driven through, or parked in, a public or recreational park.  State laws already exist which should be enforced against criminals who unlawfully possess or use firearms – in parks or anywhere else.  Law-abiding citizens should not be denied the right to protect themselves against violent attackers in local communities. 

The Council will meet next Monday at 6:00pm in Council Chambers, located at 15045 River Road (Highway 18) in Hahnville.  If you are able, please make plans to attend and voice your opposition to Ordinance No. 2016-0342.  Again, click the "Take Action" button above to email parish council members in opposition to Ordinance No. 0342. Please also contact the Council President and respectfully ask him to reconsider pursuing these misguided local restrictions, and let Council Members know you oppose them in advance of Monday’s hearing.

St. Charles Parish President:

President Larry Cochran
