Louisiana: “Gun Free Zone” Bill Eligible for a Committee Hearing – Take Action Now!

Gun Rights

Last week, Senator Kirk Talbot (R-10) introduced Senate Bill 419, gun control legislation that creates “gun-free zones” that are off limits to lawful concealed carriers unless they possess a concealed carry permit. Yesterday, SB 419 was referred to the Senate Local and Municipal Affairs Committee where it is expected to be scheduled for a committee hearing as early as next week. Please use the Take Action button below to contact the Senate Local and Municipal Affairs Committee members and urge them to OPPOSE SB 419!

Specifically, SB 419 designates the entire French Quarter of New Orleans as a so-called “gun-free zone” for those who do not have a concealed carry permit. This deprives law-abiding persons of carrying firearms under the recently signed constitutional carry legislation.

Further, SB 419 designates other areas as “gun-free zones” throughout the state, creating a patchwork of prohibited areas. This bill leaves law-abiding citizens with fewer options regarding their inherent right to self-defense. It aims to disarm those individuals while providing no solutions to address criminals who have no regard for existing laws.
