Louisiana: Multiple Gun Bills to be Considered on Monday

Urgent Action Needed: Please contact your Senator to oppose Senate Bill 231

On Monday, March 26, the Louisiana Senate will consider anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 231.  Please contact your state Senator immediately and strongly urge them to OPPOSE SB 231 when it comes up for a vote.

Senate Bill 231 would burden FFL’s with the requirement to report a NICS denial to the sheriff of the parish in which the attempted purchase occurred within 24 hours. FFLs who fail to do so would be subject to the same penalty as an attempted purchaser (five to twenty years imprisonment at hard labor).  Further, this measure would create a “shall prosecute provision,” thereby removing all discretion from the state prosecutors and REQUIRING them to prosecute those that have violated a protective order by possessing, carrying concealed, purchasing, or attempting to purchase a firearm.  Removing prosecutorial discretion inhibits the prosecutor’s traditional role of gatekeeper to the criminal justice system, whereby the prosecutor is free to pursue those most dangerous to society, while taking into account the specific facts of an individual case to grant leniency when warranted. This legislation also expands to types of protective orders where an individual may not know that they are the subject of a protective order.

Again, it is important that you contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE SB 231 when it comes up for a vote.​  For contact information or to locate who represents you, click here

Also on Monday, the Senate Judiciary B Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill 402, and the Senate Judiciary C Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill 406.  Please contact committee members and urge them to support these pro-gun bills.

Senate Bill 402 would allow both volunteers with a valid concealed carry permit to serve churches or houses of worship as armed security.  Further, this legislation defines training requirements for those churches whose insurance liability requires it.

Senate Bill 406 would allow certain teachers and parents who are active duty or retired police officers, veterans, active duty military personnel, or reservists who are concealed weapons permitees to enter into agreements with the principal to secure the school.

Please click the above “Take Action” button to contact members of the Senate Judiciary B Committee and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 402, as well as members of the Senate Judiciary C Committee in support of Senate Bill 406.
