Louisiana: Keep Contacting Your Senator in Opposition to Gun Control Legislation

On Monday, the Louisiana Senate could consider Senate Bill 491 which would prohibit the sale, manufacture, purchase, possession, or transfer of bump stocks and other “rapid-fire” devices.  The broad and overreaching language could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.  Please contact your state Senator at 225-342-2040 and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 491 when it comes up for a vote.

This week, the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee voted down numerous gun control bills to include proposals that sought to impose bans on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms used for target shooting, hunting, and self-defense, as well as banning most private transfers of firearms.

Please thank the following committee members who opposed anti-gun legislation and supported your Second Amendment rights:

Rep. Sherman Mack (R-95) (Chairman)
Rep. Steve Pylant (R-20) (Vice-Chair)
Rep. Tony Bacala (R-59)
Rep. Raymond Crews (R-8)
Rep. Stephen Dwight (R-35)
Rep. Chris Hazel (R-27)
Rep. Valarie Hodges (R-64)
Rep. Frank Howard (R-24)
Rep. Joseph Marino (I-85)
Rep. Nicholas Muscarello (R-86)
Rep. John Stefanski (R-42)
