Louisiana: Gun Ban Hearing Scheduled for Tuesday, May 19!
The House Committee on Administration of Justice will hear House Bill 387 on Tuesday, May 19. This bill, sponsored by Cedric L. Richmond (D-101), is just another attempt to pass legislation that shows a striking resemblance to the failed federal semi-automatic gun ban that expired in 2004. HB 387 would establish far-reaching restrictions on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms (falsely defining them as "assault weapons") and ammunition magazines. HB 387 would ban many semi-automatic firearms that Louisianans use for self-defense, hunting, and shooting competitions.
