In a clear pattern of disregard for laws that reduce gun violence in other states, Louisiana continue to slid in the opposite direction. The Governor signed into law, two bills to expand the proliferation of guns and violence in Louisiana.
- House Bill 602 is going to allow concealed handguns to be brought into any school or school bus if the person has a permit.
- Senate Bill 402 is going to allow churches to use anybody with a concealed carry permit to act as armed security. Training would only be required if insurance companies required it.
To those that contacted legislators asking them to oppose these bills, you can feel some satisfaction that you tried to stop the NRA’s overpowering influence.
