Louisiana: Pro-Gun Bills Scheduled for Senate Committee Hearing on Thursday

Gun Rights

Four pro-gun measures have been assigned to the Senate Judiciary C Committee and are scheduled to be considered on Thursday, May 28th.  The below bills protect our freedom in times of uncertainty and emergency, including during the current Covid-19 outbreak, and committee members need to hear from you!  Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary C Committee and ask them to support the below pro-2A 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.

Again, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary C Committee and ask them to support the above pro-2A bills. ​
