Louisiana Info: It’s all about gun owner convenience

California gun protest

Don’t assume your state Representatives cares about gun safety. For example, an NRA bill to strengthen preemption passed the House this week. To see why preemption is important to gun proponents, look at this quote from Representative Blake Maguez: “[The current law is] a patchwork of regulations [that] confuse those trying to follow the law. Gun law should be consistent around the state.” Maguez is the key sponsor of the bill. He wouldn’t want gun owners to be confused, and then have to look up what the laws are. So, Republican supporters of this NRA bill voted for the convenience of gun owners, not for gun safety.

The other bill progressing in the legislature allows loaded guns to be brought into churches. Get ready for gun battles inside your church.

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.

👎 House Bill 235 would allow loaded guns to be brought into churches.
