Committee Vote Set Today On Bill Gutting Louisiana Pre-emption Law

posted on May 3, 2016

The Louisiana House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee will hold a public hearing this afternoon on an important measure that would gut the state’s firearm pre-emption law currently in effect.

House Bill 959, sponsored by Democrat state Rep. John Bagneris, would give the City of New Orleans the statutory authority to pass any law city officials wanted to govern the sale, purchase, possession, ownership, transfer, transportation, license, or registration of firearms and ammunition. The only reason city officials haven’t restricted citizens’ rights in these areas already is because Louisiana Revised Statutes Section 40:1796(A) prohibits municipalities and parishes from enacting ordinances and regulations more restrictive than state law. 

Use Your Power!

NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action urges all Louisianans to contact the members of the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee and urge them to oppose HB 959. Please also try to attend the hearing and sign up to speak against, or register your opposition to, HB 959 by filling out a red card. You can contact committee members here.
