Louisiana: Gun Control Legislation Passes Out of Senate Committee

Louisiana: Gun Control Legislation Passes Out of Senate Committee

Senate Bill 274 passed out of the Senate Judiciary C Committee today and will now head to the Senate Floor.  Senator Mills (R-22), Senator Carter (D-7), Senator Colomb (D-14), and Senator Barrow (D-15) all voted to restrict the constitutional right to acquire some of the most commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms for self-defense, target shooting, and hunting.  This legislation is demeaning to Louisiana’s young adults who are otherwise allowed to vote, join the military, and exercise every other constitutionally guaranteed right. 

Contact your state Senator today and urge them to vote against SB 274 when it gets to the floor.  Any legislative proposal that seeks to prevent law-abiding adults aged 18 to 20 years old from acquiring certain firearms deprives them of their constitutional right to self-defense.

Your NRA-ILA thanks Chairman Claitor (R-16), Senator Perry (R-26), and Senator White (R-6) for voting to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens.

Tomorrow morning, 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.
