U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- In order to override Governor John Bel Edwards’ veto of Senate Bill 118, Constitutional Carry, your state Senator, and Representative must first vote to have a veto session.

A ballot has been mailed to all the Louisiana legislators asking if they want to have a veto session.

This is where your help is more important than ever! 

Governor Edwards’ Veto DOES NOT represent Louisianans, as the majority of your elected legislators voted YES to Constitutional Carry, Senate Bill 118.  We need you to use the TAKE ACTION button below to contact your state Senator and Representative and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT a veto session, and vote to override Governor Edwards’ veto of Senate Bill 118.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

21 States, including all of LA’s bordering states, recognize the constitutional right of their citizens to carry a firearm for self-defense without first obtaining government permission and paying a fee to do so.

Let’s make Louisiana Number 22!

FYI – Louisianans can already open carry without a permit. Putting on a coat or carrying a firearm in a purse should not, and does not, turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.  Apparently, Governor Edwards thinks it does and is using that ill-conceived logic as one of his reasons for vetoing SB 118.

In case you missed it – Senate Bill 118 removes the requirement for law-abiding individuals to obtain a concealed handgun permit before being allowed to carry concealed, a handgun for self-defense.  This important legislation ensures that citizens are able to exercise their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.  This measure does not affect previously issued carry permits and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Louisiana permits, to do so.

Don’t forget to take a moment and forward this important alert to your family, friends, and fellow gun-owners asking them to also contact their state Senator AND Representative.

Until Americans actually research & figure out the source of Fascist Corporate Corruptocracy it continues sadly. The answers are known & you won’t find them in the 6 corporate media controlled Octopus or manufactured journalism. Research & read is the best answer. NRA was founded by 4 Union Soldier’s. UNION being the key word. Think independently for yourselves. Why does Lincoln sit in a throne ?

I hope they override the idiot governor’s veto. If not, I hope the voters of Louisiana veto the governor and every legislator who did not stand with them to the end in the next two electiins.

Thanks to NRA infesting “carry” states with “gun free” zones, it’s hardly constitutional carry. Stop exaggerating.

The NRA is not our friend anymore.
Until they clean house, do not send them any more money.
I hate saying that as a life member. I have stopped contributing to the NRA. Other 2a organizations are better suited and are run honestly like the SAF and CCRKBA.

Once Wayne Lapierre and his Regime are gone, then start giving back to the NRA

The NRA has advocated for arms control long before Wayne. They supported the NFA, GCA, and Mulford Act. Wayne came along and they supported the Hughes Amendment, import bans, NICS, red flag laws, bumpstock ban, and FixNICS. They’ve never been on our side. They’re controlled opposition at best and outright traitors using the threat of gun confiscation as a revenue scheme at worst. I gave them a chance when Pete Brownell became president because he’s a true 2A advocate and wanted to turn it around. I became a Benefactor Member. Pete resigned after realizing the power Wayne weilds is almost… Read more »

Lucky Pierre LaPew has also consistently backed “gun free” zones and seen that they were written into state “carry” laws, resulting in massacres at the El Paso mall, Pulse Nightclub, Virginia Tech, Parkland etc. He testified to congress in favor of “gun free” school zones after Columbine and never retracted it. After Parkland, instead of pushing for armed teachers & staff, he pushed for at least half a million new government union “resource officers” (cops) in schools, as if they can be in all classrooms at once. You know, like the Broward Cowards. As if police are a substitute for… Read more »
