Louisiana: Committee Passes Pro-Gun Bills to the House Floor

Today, the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee passed House Bill 602 and Senate Bill 402.  These important self-defense measures will now head to the House Floor for further consideration.  Please contact your state Representative and strongly urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 602 and Senate Bill 402.


House Bill 602 would allow for concealed handgun permit holders, visiting a school, to carry a concealed firearm into any school, school campus, or school bus.  House Bill 602 is scheduled to be considered tomorrow.

Senate Bill 402 would allow both volunteers with a valid concealed carry permit to serve churches or houses of worship as armed security.  Further, this legislation defines training requirements for those churches whose insurance liability requires it.

Again, please contact your state Representative and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 602 and Senate Bill 402 when they come up for a vote.

Please thank the following committee members who support 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)
