NSSF- The Firearms Industry Trade Association  

Dear Louisiana FFL:

The Louisiana State Legislature earlier this year passed Senate Bill 231 and Gov. John Bel Edwards ultimately signed that legislation into law. Among other things, the new law which is set to take effect on October 1, 2018, requires licensed firearms dealers to report any NICS denial to the sheriff of the parish in which the attempted purchase occurred and to the Louisiana Automated Victim Notification System (LAVNS).

NSSF staff has been in communication with the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement in order to ensure FFLs have the most information possible needed to comply with the new law.

It has been conveyed that FFLs should reach out to their respective Sheriff’s Office to inquire how exactly that Office would prefer you communicate any NICS denials. For reporting purposes, be prepared to include all identifying information made available to you by the purchaser.

To satisfy the reporting requirements for LAVNS, the same information relating to the attempted purchaser, and the Sheriff’s Office it was reported to, should be sent to:

Marshall Menou

Fax: (225)342-1672
Should you have any further questions relating to the new reporting requirement, please reach out to Marshall Menou.
