Last Thursday, the Louisiana Legislature adjourned from its 2021 Legislative Session after an extremely successful year for gun owners. However, NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters can’t rest yet. Constitutional Carry legislation, Senate Bill 118, is currently sitting on the desk of Governor John bel Edwards awaiting his signature. It is extremely important that you please contact your State Representative and ask them to urge Governor Edwards to SIGN Senate Bill 118 into law. Also, please call Governor Edward’s office at 225-342-7015 and voice your support for Senate Bill 118.
Senate Bill 118 removes the requirement for law-abiding individuals to obtain a concealed handgun permit before being allowed to carry concealed, a handgun for self-defense. This important legislation ensures that citizens are able to exercise their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. This measure does not affect previously issued carry permits, and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Louisiana permits, to do so.
Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to urge Governor Edwards to sign the measure into law. Please also call Governor Edwards’ office at 225-342-7015 and voice your support for Senate Bill 118.
