No More Funerals

Now is your chance to help prevent gun violence. The Louisiana full House of Representatives will vote on two NRA promoted bills this week. This is the moment when your Representative is deciding which way to vote. Please help oppose these two bills.

The Bills

👎 House Bill 281 would strengthen the centralized state control called preemption. It would take away the freedom of communities to make their own gun restriction ordinances.
