People need to take action NOW!!! The communist in are legislature are in full action.

Committees to Consider Anti-Gun Legislation Beginning Tomorrow

Starting tomorrow, Louisiana Senate and House committees are scheduled to consider several anti-gun bills and committee members need to hear from you now!

Tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary C Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill 155 and Senate Bill 274.

Senate Bill 155 prohibits the sale of any “weapon” to any person under the age of 21 years old. Again, this type of legislation does little to increase public safety and only impacts the rights of law-abiding adults.

Senate Bill 274, similar to SB 155, prohibits the sale of commonly owned semi-automatic rifles to any person under 21 years of age. This legislation punishes law-abiding citizens for the evil acts of criminals, does nothing to increase public safety and will prohibit law-abiding 18-20 year old adults from purchasing the most popular and effective self-defense rifle on the market.

Any legislative proposal that seeks to prevent law-abiding adults aged 18 to 20 years old from acquiring a firearm deprives them of their constitutional right to self-defense. This legislation is outright offensive and demeaning to Louisiana’s young adults who are otherwise allowed to vote, join the military, and exercise every other constitutionally guaranteed right.

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary C Committee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 155 and Senate Bill 274.

On Wednesday, the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee is scheduled to consider two anti-gun bills.

House Bill 448 creates a petition for an ex parte order to remove someone’s Second Amendment rights and the seizure of firearms without a clear mechanism to expeditiously return firearms when the protective order expires. NRA supports efforts to keep firearms and any other weapon out of the hands of people who are a danger to themselves and others. However, this legislation lacks due process protections as well as proper procedures for when an order is expired or terminated.

House Bill 357 would expand the list of prohibited persons by including certain misdemeanors among the offenses that would cause the loss of an individual’s Second Amendment rights. In most cases, if an offense calls for the removal of a constitutional right, it should be considered a felony offense.

Please contact members of the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 448 and house Bill 357.
Re: Another Anti-2nd Amendment Bill in Louisiana Legislature
Woodfisher, You calling our elected officials communists is no different than Hillary calling us deplorables. Just because citizens have differences of opinions does not make one right or wrong. That's the value of living in a democracy. It's not always easy but in my opinion it's much better than growing up in Russia.
Re: Another Anti-2nd Amendment Bill in Louisiana Legislature
First of all,we do not live in a DEMOCRACY which is effectively majority/mob rule or more formally known as RULE BY MEN! We are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC WHICH MEANS RULE BY LAW AND SPECIFICALLY REJECTS RULE BY MEN, which is not fixed but relative. This means that our elected representatives must act legislatively in a manner representing that which is fixed or set forth in our Constitution, which is why they take the OATH. TO AFFECT CHANGES TO OUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS such as the SECOND ENUMERATED RIGHT THE PROPER MANNER IS THROUGH A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT, TO REFLECT ANY CHANGE OR DESIRE OF THE MAJORITY OF CITIZENS FOR EACH INSTANCE. AMENDMENTS PURPOSELY, TAKE MUCH LONGER THAN BILLS BECOMING A LAW. Your comment regarding Democracy is quite common but it reflects the ignorance with which we approach legislative matters as a nation and thus we have allowed legislative and judicial erosion of the protections found in our Constitution with little to no repercussions for those officials but to the detriment of our God given rights, unfortunately.

Second, as to calling elected officials Communists, being an equivalent to Deplorables, you are again incorrect. However, you are correct in that I should not have chosen the term Communists YET because what they are, is Marxists. Marxism is a well-documented ideology of collectivism that has given way to variable forms of government (socialism, nazism, fascism and communism and many variations in between). Marxism has very clear principles and its tenets are identifiable through expression of perspective and/or policy. If you have ever studied Marxism/Communism, its history or at a minimum, read the Communist Manifesto you would also be able to readily identify its sympathizers (some of which are open members of the proud Communist Party USA and others proud members of the Democratic Socialists of America or some of which Lenin referred to as Useful Idiots because they advanced the goals of Marxism without fully understanding or identifying themselves as such). Marxism under its varied forms is a real danger to our Constitutional Republic, which has manifested itself in the murder of over 150 million lives, property theft and enslavement and it is occurring today not via revolution but more commonly through collectivism and consensus, in small doses LEGISLATIVELY AND THROUGH REGULATION. Deplorables is a derogative term and any analogy between the two attempts to place Marxism/Communism on a level with name calling, which is ludicrous because the latter is supported by voting patterns and bill proposals. The former arose from the rantings of a Marxist sympathizer, which can also be proven by her policy choices, voting patterns, bill proposals and actions taken as an elected and appointed official. With 1200 bill proposals in LA's legislature this session, do you really think they are acting to protect our freedoms? NO, they are not, but they are advancing policies and laws that align with Marxism more than they align with the goals and purpose of our Constitution. Just for you I will not call them Communists as of yet, but I will keep calling them Marxists because with most bill proposals, votes and enactments of law they whittle away more and more of our freedoms while growing government, which has never in history ended well.

And oh by the way staying true to the nature of this forum, I will inform you that the Marxists in the Senate Judiciary C Committee PASSED SB274 to prohibit the sale of assault weapons to adults ages 18-20. It goes to the full Senate. So if you are a Marxist go ahead and call in support of it, but if you are a true American then call to oppose SB274
Re: Another Anti-2nd Amendment Bill in Louisiana Legislature
Concerned citizens should know that all Republicans in the Senate Judiciary C Committee voted against SB274; a bill infringing on our second amendment rights, with the exception of Sen. Fred Mills (R) of the New Iberia area. Mills voted with the Democrats in FAVOR of this gun restrictive bill. Had Sen. Mills voted as a Constitutional Republican SB274 would have died in this committee, now it will make its way through the legislature. Please take a moment to send him your thoughts on this betrayal.
