Louisiana: St. Charles Parish Council Indefinitely Postpones Park Carry Ban Ordinance

Thanks to your calls, emails and attendance for Monday night's meeting in opposition to Proposed Ordinance No. 2016-0342, the St. Charles Parish Council indefinitely postponed action on the measure, effectively tabling it from further consideration at this time.  The ordinance, as introduced, would have banned the possession of loaded or unloaded firearms, ammunition, projectile firing devices, bows and arrows, and crossbows in any public or recreational park located within the Parish.  It would have applied to concealed carry permit holders and to constitutionally-protected activities such as the lawful possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle driven through, or stopped in a park.

Thank you to Councilman Paul Hogan, a fellow NRA member, for alerting us to the proposed ordinance, which allowed us to notify other local NRA members and concerned citizens about its far-reaching consequences.  Please contact Councilman Hogan and his colleagues to thank them for indefinitely postponing action on Proposed Ordinance No. 2016-0342 at this time.

Please contact St. Charles Parish Council members and thank them for indefinitely postponing action on Proposed Ordinance No. 2016-0342.  Contact information for the St. Charles Parish Council can be found here.
