Search for “gun death by state.” You’ll find Louisiana listed in the top two or three states. They have very few gun regulations. It makes no sense then to eliminate more regulations.
But, the legislature is currently considering two bills to do just that:
- 👎House Bill 602 would allow concealed handguns to be brought into any school or school bus if the person has a permit.
- 👎Senate Bill 402 would 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.
Please join us in resisting the NRA. Call the Senate Judiciary B Committee (225) 342-0654 and ask them to oppose House Bill 602. If you haven’t done so, call your representative and ask them to oppose Senate Bill 402.
