Louisiana: Anti-Gun, Left Wing Media Calls 2A Protections "Extremism" and "Ridiculous"

Pro-Gun Bills Set for Floor Debate TOMORROW

The liberal, left wing media in Louisiana is calling basic 2A protections "extremism" and "ridiculous." Last week, a House committee passed four pro-gun bills to the House Floor where they will be considered for a vote tomorrow.  NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to contact State Representatives and ask them to stand with gun owners and the Second Amendment by voting YES on the following bills:

House Bill 746, sponsored by Rep. Ray Garofalo, allows those who lawfully possess a firearm to carry concealed for self-defense during a mandatory evacuation under a declared state of emergency or disaster.

House Bill 781, sponsored by Rep. Blake Miguez, establishes that firearms and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers, and retailers are “Essential Businesses” that shall not be prohibited from conducting business during a declared disaster or emergency.  HB 781 further prevents law-abiding gun owners’ rights from being infringed during proclaimed curfews.

House Bill 140, sponsored by Rep. Blake Miguez, prevents local authorities and municipalities from imposing restrictions to prohibit the possession of a firearm.  Preemption legislation is designed to stop municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws that turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line.

House Bill 334, sponsored by Reps. Bryan Fontenot, Blake Miguez and Charles Owen, authorizes a concealed handgun permit holder to carry a concealed handgun in a church, synagogue, mosque, or other similar place of worship.

Don’t let those who believe that your Constitutional Rights are “extremist” drown out your voice.  Please contact your state Representative and ask them to support the above pro-2A bills.​​
