LA: Constitutional Carry Heads to the House Floor!
I am happy to report that Constitutional Carry bill SB118 was passed out of the House Committee on the Administration of Criminal Justice by a vote of 6-4 and will now head to the House Floor for consideration.
SB118 would restore the right of law-abiding gun owners, 21 years and older, to Conceal Carry a handgun in the state of Louisiana without a permit in those same places an individual can Open Carry.
While in committee, SB118 was amended to mirror Constitutional Carry bill HB596. (Essentially, SB118 was amended to include the same optional training resource provided in HB596.) This means that should SB118 pass the House, it would have to first go back to the Senate to vote on the amendments added by the House before finally going to the Governor.
But before SB118 can reach Governor Edward’s desk, it must first pass the House! So please take action and urge your State Representative to support Constitutional Carry bill SB118!
(A quick note. The email draft provided is a sample message for you to use, but I urge you to add your own personal reasons why you support Constitutional Carry. Remember it is much more effective when you use your own words.)
If you can, call your State Representative and ask that they vote YES on SB118. (If you don’t know who your State Representative is, use our Legislator Lookup tool to look them up.)
Then send them a follow up email using the form above.
