Louisiana: House Passes Constitutional Carry, Now Headed to Gov. Landry’s Desk for His Signature

Gun Rights

Today, the House voted 75-28 to pass Senate Bill 1, the NRA-backed constitutional carry legislation that passed the Senate last week. With that, Louisiana has taken another significant step towards becoming the 28th constitutional/permitless carry state. The bill is now headed to the desk of Governor Jeff Landry, who has pledged to sign the bill into law.

Senate Bill 1 strengthens the right to self-defense in Louisiana by recognizing the right of any law-abiding adult, who is at least 18 years old, to carry a concealed firearm without first having to obtain government permission.

Your NRA would like to thank the primary author, Senator Blake Miguez, House co-author, Speaker Pro Tem. Mike Johnson, and the numerous co-authors for supporting this important legislation. Additionally, thank you to all of the NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who remained vigilant in contacting and urging their lawmakers to defend the rights of Louisianans.
