The Louisiana House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee will hear four gun bills this week. These are four important gun bills and concerned citizens need to contact the committee.
👎 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.
👎 House Bill 235 would allow loaded guns to be brought into churches.
👍 House Bill 483 would create an extreme risk type bill. This would allow family and authorities to remove guns from a dangerous person.
👍 House Bill 101 would create a “Voluntary Do Not Sell List.” This would allow individuals to add their own name, thereby restricting themselves from purchasing a gun.
