SB 319, the state level gun ban which is more extensive than the federal ban that sunsetted last year, has been re-referred to the Senate Judiciary C Committee. SB 319 would ban the possession and future purchase of certain semi-automatic firearms unless an individual has obtained a two-year, $100 permit from the State Police. The bill also imposes restrictions on firearm sales and record keeping requirements on licensed dealers, including a $50 tax on ammunition that can be used on firearms targeted by the bill.
The committee is expected to hear the bill on May 17, at 9:00 a.m., in Committee Room A of the State Capitol in Baton Rouge. Please make plans to attend that hearing and begin contacting committee members and urging them to oppose SB 319.

Its crazy and disguisting.
/SB 319 would ban the possession and future purchase of certain semi-automatic firearms unless an individual has obtained a two-year, $100 permit from the State Police.

A ban? Sounds like a tax to me.
I still dont understand what these minority people want from us, all our ability to hunt, defend, and for what? What power trip do they hold up their sleve that they are so scared of Americans being armed that they have to start removing our rights.
This is how it is done, desensitizing the population a little at a time, adjusting us to a law here, new one there till you wake up one day and you have nothing left. When you lose your ability to feed and defend you are as useless and helpless as all these others in these third world dictatorships and countries. We are next, there is no more free country.
posession. I don't think it is right for me to have to be recorded as owning a labeled gun. They require fingerprint cards and a lot of money. The tax on the ammo is insane in itself. I am going to blow my savings on ammunition before it's too late. If this one dont pass then another will eventually.
It's a ban, read it clearly. BAN THE POSSESSION AND FUTURE PURCHASE. Simple and clear cut, possession is the key word there.
This is in Louisiana, what chance does it have? I'm not saying take it laying down, to the contrary, flood their lines.
If you can obtain it, even if you have a permit, it isn't a ban.
Last time I checked, a ban meant you couldn't get something at all.
That being said, I hate extra taxes.
Louisiana, the "Sportsman's Paradise" will never go for this.
Sometimes it is embarassing knowing that the people that you elected don't have the sense to pour piss out of a boot.
The good citizens of Louisiana will never let this by. But just in case, I'm writing a few letters and planning on making a huge ammo purchase.
"Modernizing the Progressive (Hah!) Cause to Connect with Mainstream America
"America has moved sharply to the right. Though a plurality of Americans identify themselves as political moderates, conservatives have made substantial inroads into that group, which has brought them control of every branch of government. A main reason for this shift is that conservatives have built an extensive and well-coordinated idea industry that has convinced a majority of Americans that they are the true reformers who will tackle Americas challenges at the dawn of the 21st Century. By contrast, progressives the undisputed reformers of the last 100 years are now often seen as out-of-touch defenders of the status quo.
Third Way is tackling this problem two ways. First, we conduct policy work. The Third Way Idea Network a virtual complex that taps the nations vast intellectual resources generates innovative new ideas to bring to the Senate. Second, we are undertaking a series of projects that will provide in-depth analysis and develop comprehensive language, messaging and strategy to modernize the progressive cause. We focus on strengthening progressives in three areas of strategic weakness:
National Security: Third Way is helping to design an alternative vision to that of the neoconservatives. This includes examinations of our military structures, strategic alliances, and energy policy, among other areas.
The Economic/Social Compact: Third Way is working to modernize the progressive approach to issues that impact American families, in areas like the economy, the tax code, retirement security, health care costs, education, etc.
Cultural Issues: Third Way is launching initiatives to help progressives reconnect with the mainstream of America on cultural issues while retaining progressive values. Third Way's Team
The Third Way team has extensive political, communications and policy experience, forged at every level of government and advocacy the White House, federal agencies, the House and Senate, presidential campaigns, and national non-profit advocacy organizations.
The Third Way team has taken on the task of repositioning critical policy issues before, as leaders of Americans for Gun Safety (AGS). AGS found a third way on one of the most difficult and controversial issues in politics. The AGS approach led to winning Senate gun votes in March 2004 (against long odds). The NRA itself admitted that the AGS approach neutralized the issue in the 2004 presidential race.
Third Way is organized as a 501(c)(4) non-partisan, non-profit advocacy organization. This structure gives us the flexibility to work on legislation, communicate with key players in the national debate, and educate the public on important issues."
In theory. However, in Reality, what happens is that the sheriff of the county or parish simply refuses to issue such permits, claiming "nobody really needs one" or some such. For example, in theory it's possible to get a CCW permit in California. However, in most counties, the sheriff is not willing to issue them -- except to politicians such as Diane Feinstein!
N.O.'s been having a lot of crime involving AK's recently. Anyone know what that is about?
We're all in this together, keep up the fight.
Let me reiterate, the crimes in New Orleans are not by way or use of AK's in any popular manner, just the opposite. The most popular and used gun by criminals is the 9mm handgun, this is City Stats for New Orleans - I can't speak for any other city but mine.
This one you dont see much because they want people to still fear these guns, they are evil looking and that must make them more deadly right.. To the contrary, actually my AK is less deadly than my 30-06 because I can pick of something or a lot of somethings at a distance much greater than my AK can reach and do it accurately. This is IF I had the mindset of some insane criminal. I prefer to not even go in that direction but to show my point, the AK is less deadly when it comes to certain aspects. Remember, I can load up as many rounds as I want, if I were a criminal would it matter if I used a large illegal magazine or a 5 round magazine? If I were a criminal would I worry about the fact that this gun is now controlled, of course not, the criminal mindset dont even take these issues into consideration.
Law abiding people are going to be made into criminals and have their freedon plundered.
Thanks! I know we are and it will take every single one of our voices to make out point clear too.
Be patient; they'll come for your deer rifle later.
Kind of hazy, isn't it?
The word POSSESSION, infers they will make ILLEGAL, "certain" semi-autos one may ALREADY possess through legal and registered purchase!!
WHAT "certain" semi-autos will be banned without a "permit"?
Do we REALLY want some leftist Congress Critters or State Police DEFINING "certain"?
If this passes --- and allows the state to use previously legal "registered" purchase records to run down previously legal owners to make them secure ADDITIONAL approval at the cost of several hundred dollars to retain firearms they purchased legally and registered ------ then the registration process must be destroyed..
. Semper Fi
Coonasses won't stand for this crap......this bill is dead but I will bump it up so said coonasses can see the tread an yank their congresscritters chain for even letting it get out of committee.......
Nope sorry....must have picture of engine block in tree before I can validate yer claim ........:o)
Stay safe and good luck fighting this.
Eaker, meet Realnola....Realnola meet Eaker and "The Mom".....ya'll seperated at birth ?......:o)
A ban? Sounds like a tax to me.
Pleased ta meet ya Eaker!
That would be a picture of my wife.. By the way, the engine block is not hanging in the tree, I dont have a tree for it to hand from, it's in the shead and there's also one in the garage. That race car I speak of in my back yard, it's my wife's car - that young girl in the picture above. She is the driver not me. heh..
Neither my wife or myself know who our biological parrents are - there is a possibility. We are both adopted.
PS: Since my wife is following this thread from home while I am at the office, she can think of getting some gumbo together for those crabs we just boiled!! HINT! The file' is in the pantry, get your roux going and get to the grocery. Cajun enough? Do we qualify?
our thinknig of the green party the libertarians wh=anto get rid of all of the 23 000 unconstitutional gun laws in this country and they are pro hunting and pro red meat.
Forgive me for not being up on all these different parties, I am Ind. neither Rep. or Dem. Certainly not Democrat that's for darn sure.. So yo say the green party wants to help quash the nutty gun laws and help protect our right to keep and bear arms? they are also pro hunting and pro gun?
I thought Nader was a green, if I am not mistaken, not to insult either but is he not the biggest goof ball? He never did strike me as someone capable of maintaining his temper or being capable of dealing with any sort of pressure - something a president needs to be able to do.. although bush is not the smartest whip around, at least he has advisors who tell him when its time to shup up, you're looking dumb again. Well I am pro-bush mostly, just never did see any other choice to be honest. Kerry is a whining cry-baby two faced liar and completely out the question, nader could not handle getting a simple pie in his face and lost it on national tv so that eliminates him, Bush at least rolls with the punches and such. Imagine where we would be, our troops even more so if we had either Nader or Kerry in office, now imagine what would be happening on our home-front without the added security?
So what Party will preserve our gun rights? I always believed it would be the Republican Party.
Simple. The governments in this Nation are solidly behind the destruction of our way of life. This effort comes from both parties. When the Sheeple wake up and realize this perhaps these trends can be reversed.
Maybe if we flood their lines (one call per person) and email they wont be able to conspire to deprive us of our rights and liberties?
No you misunderstood my post the greens are the anti gun vegans the libertarians are pro guns pro hunting and anti large bloated goverment they wanto get rid of all gun control laws including the 1968 gun control act that isa direct english translation of hitlers 1938 gun control act passed with the help of both the republicans and democrats
"...Another Gun Ban but directly affects hunters and legal law-abiding citizens..."
Is there ANY other type of gun ban? They never affect criminals.

My daughter at 10.
A few years later.
I don't expect it to pass, but it is a sign than the gun grabbers are continuing to push their statist agenda.
It also goes to prove the fact that when gunowners fail to take the offensive at the state level, the antis fill the void. Contrast Louisiana to Virginia, which has a very assertive state RKBA organization, and which has gotten two dozen or so pro-gun bills enacted in the last couple of years despite a RAT governor.
The truth is that most politicians don't give a rat's ass about our Rights. Witness the assault on the BOR in the last few decades. The amendment that has been damaged the least is only in that condition because of 4 million NRA members and thousands of others active at the state level. Without them, the 2nd would be in as bad a shape as the 9th or the 4th.
I totally agree. The grabboids and other related statists will never quit, and neither can we.
I saw on the NRA web site that this was smacked down. Good job!
Very much so! Thanks everyone for the help!
Interesting tidbit.. My wife registered here at FR to post and get in on the discussions, her account was INSTANTLY suspended , it allows her to login but says YOUR POSTING PRIVLEGE HAS BEEN REVOKED. She has not even had a chance to post a single thing. I know she signed up right because she is an administrator on two forums for a Doctor and another similar client. She registered as coonasswife
I guess the censors here are hard at work and fast at that. She sent two emails to Jim and has not received any response.
Well after two days of trying, all of a sudden I can post. Never did get a return email but such is life. I guess the censors took a break..coonasswife still does not work so I am realnolawife...which I am...so thanks for the break.
