In Louisiana, two bills to protect your right to keep and bear arms against attacks by the federal government are moving forward.  Please read on and take the action steps below this introduction to support the 2nd Amendment today!  Votes are scheduled in the state house very soon – so your support is needed right now!

House Bill 5, the Second Amendment Preservation Act, a bill to prohibit the enforcement of any federal law in the state of Louisiana which attempts to either ban the ownership or possession of certain types of firearms, or impose registration requirements for such firearms, has passed committee 9-6. This bill is scheduled for a full House floor vote on April 23rd. Please contact your representative and tell him or her to vote YES on HB5.  (details below)

House Bill 45, the Louisiana Manufactured Firearms and Ammunition Act, a bill to protect privately owned firearms and manufacturers of firearms passed the Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice with a vote of 10-1.  This bill has been sent to the Committee on Appropriations. Please contact the committee and tell them to vote YES on HB45 so a state can create it’s own office that would regulate intrastate firearms manufacturing.


1. Contact your Representative. Strongly, but respectfully, urge him or her to vote YES on HB5.  The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
