Louisiana Senate Passes Gun Rights Bill

During the crisis of hurricane Katrina, New Orleans police began a near systematic attempt to confiscate all firearms from all people. It is debatable but some say Louisiana law allows authorities to do this in a time of crisis. What is appalling is that one of the reasons our founding fathers created the 2nd Amendment was so the citizens could protect themselves during a time of crisis.

Senate Bill 93, founded by Sen. Joe McPherson, (D) Woodworth, would prohibit that from happening. The bill cleared the Senate in a 39-0 vote. The bill would not prohibit police from confiscating illegal firearms and those held illegally by convicted felons. It is designed to protect the rights of lawful citizens.

The bill will now go before the House for debate.
