SB 194 enhances and strengthens Louisiana’s existing firearm preemption laws to ensure statewide uniformity. SB 194 expands the types of behavior political subdivisions are generally prohibited from regulating, provides standing for both individuals and organizations to seek declaratory and injunctive relief when political subdivisions are in violation, and requires political subdivisions to repeal any offending ordinances or regulations within six months of the bill’s enactment. SB 194 passed the Senate 28-11. 

SB 214 creates a uniform set of laws pertaining to the carrying of concealed firearms in dining establishments, ensuring law-abiding citizens have the right to defend themselves and their families. SB 214 passed the Senate 27-11.

Anti-Gun:

HB 408 creates the “Louisiana Voluntary Do Not Sell” list, to establish a system where a person can voluntarily waive the right to purchase and possess firearms. 

HB 498 and HB 627 create “gun-free zones” to prohibit carrying a concealed handgun in specific locations, creating a patchwork of prohibited areas across the state.
