Louisiana: 2022 Gun Day Scheduled for Tomorrow in Two Committees

Louisiana: 2022 Gun Day Scheduled for Tomorrow in Two Committees

Tomorrow, the House Criminal Justice Committee and the Senate Judiciary C Committee have queued up a number of gun bills for consideration.  NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to click on both “Take Action” buttons to contact each committee.

House Criminal Justice Committee:


Pro-Gun:

House Bill 37 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.  HB 37 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.

House Bill 464 looks to enhance Louisiana’s due process protections for protective order respondents, by allowing them to have received reasonable notice and opportunity to be heard, before having their Second Amendment rights revoked.

House Bill 483 amends current law to allow for an individual to apply for the restoration of their gun rights after 5 years, instead of 10.

House Bill 868 creates an online handgun education course by the Louisiana State Police offered for free to Louisiana residents.

Anti-Gun:

House Bill 209 looks to gut Louisiana’s preemption statute and allow for certain parishes to create their own regulations related to firearms and ammunition.  Maintaining a strong and intact State Preemption law is important to prevent a patchwork of differing gun laws across the Sportsman’s Paradise.

House Bill 949 redefines “possession” for individuals under 18 years of age and creates a broad scope of instances where a firearm’s presence could be considered possession even if the minor never knew the firearm was there.

 

Senate Judiciary C Committee:


Senate Bill 327 would create an ex parte firearm confiscation order procedure. Under this procedure a respondent’s firearms would be confiscated without the opportunity to appear at a hearing, obtain counsel, and participate. Such a procedure would extinguish a constitutional right without due process.

Due process limits restrictions on constitutional rights to only serious convictions and adjudications that provide procedural protections to the accused, which results in more reliable proceedings.  The Right to Keep and Bear Arms should not be treated as a second-class right and should only be restricted when sufficient protections are in place.

Again, please click on both “Take Action” buttons to contact the House Criminal Justice Committee and the Senate Judiciary C Committee.
