LOUISIANA FREEDOM CAUCUS ENDORSES CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY BILL
Published 10:14 am Wednesday, May 17, 2023
BATON ROUGE—The Louisiana State Freedom Caucus (LAFC) supports the quick passage by the full House of LAFC Member Danny McCormick’s HB131 that passed out of the Criminal Justice Committee last night. We urge swift consideration on the House floor where it passed last year and an expeditious consideration by the Senate.
“Constitutional carry is a fundamental right. You don’t have to have a license to exercise your right to free speech so it makes no sense to require a license to exercise your right to bear arms. Both are equally protected by the US Constitution. The passing of HB131 will mean that in Louisiana, honest, law-abiding citizens’ rights are protected. I look forward to bringing the debate to the full body of the House,” said Alan Seabaugh, Chairman of the Louisiana Freedom Caucus.
The bill is co-authored by Beryl Amedée, Valarie Hodges, Larry Bagley, Gabe Firment, Kathy Edmonston, Larry Frieman, Brett Geymann, Rodney Schamerhorn, Joseph Orgeron, Charles Owen, Raymond Crews, Robert “Bob” Owen, Dodie Horton, Julie Emerson, Neil Riser, Mark Wright, Tony Bacala and Alan Seabaugh.
