Louisiana: Your Action Needed - Committees to Consider Anti-Gun Legislation Beginning Tomorrow

Starting tomorrow, Louisiana Senate and House committees are scheduled to consider several anti-gun bills and committee members need to hear from you now!

Tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary C Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill 155 and Senate Bill 274. 

Senate Bill 155 prohibits the sale of any “weapon” to any person under the age of 21 years old.  Again, this type of legislation does little to increase public safety and only impacts the rights of law-abiding adults.

Senate Bill 274, similar to SB 155, prohibits the sale of commonly owned semi-automatic rifles to any person under 21 years of age.  This legislation punishes law-abiding citizens for the evil acts of criminals, does nothing to increase public safety and will prohibit law-abiding 18-20 year old adults from purchasing the most popular and effective self-defense rifle on the market. 

Any legislative proposal that seeks to prevent law-abiding adults aged 18 to 20 years old from acquiring a firearm deprives them of their constitutional right to self-defense.  This legislation is outright offensive and demeaning to Louisiana’s young adults who are otherwise allowed to vote, join the military, and exercise every other constitutionally guaranteed right. 

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary C Committee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 155 and Senate Bill 274.

On Wednesday, the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee is scheduled to consider two anti-gun bills.

House Bill 448 creates a petition for an ex parte order to remove someone’s Second Amendment rights and the seizure of firearms without a clear mechanism to expeditiously return firearms when the protective order expires. NRA supports efforts to keep firearms and any other weapon out of the hands of people who are a danger to themselves and others. However, this legislation lacks due process protections as well as proper procedures for when an order is expired or terminated. 

House Bill 357 would expand the list of prohibited persons by including certain misdemeanors among the offenses that would cause the loss of an individual’s Second Amendment rights.  In most cases, if an offense calls for the removal of a constitutional right, it should be considered a felony offense.

Please contact members of the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 448 and house Bill 357.
