Support Firearm Industry Protection Legislation in Louisiana
Louisiana state Rep. Blake Miguez (R-Erath), working with NSSF, introduced HB 781 to prohibit government officials from ordering the closure of firearm and ammunition businesses during declared emergencies or disasters. The bill classifies industry members as “essential businesses and operations for the purposes of safety and security.” 
Current Louisiana law explicitly authorizes the governor, parish presidents and municipalities to “suspend or limit the sale… of firearms” during a declared emergency or disaster. HB 781 appropriately strikes this unconstitutional provision and replaces it with protections for firearm and ammunition “manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers, and retailers.”
HB 781 will be up for a vote on the House floor in the next few days. Please contact your representative today and ask that he or she support HB 781.
