Today, LSA President Dan Zelenka sent this email to all State Senators. But, it’s not enough. You MUST call your State Senator today and ask them to vote NO on SB274!

The Michael Bloomberg-backed Mothers Demand Action sent members to cry in front of the Judiciary C Committee explaining how they were afraid to leave the house. They are organized and attacking your rights! Apparently, it worked, because the bill made it out of the committee and onto the Senate floor.

Today, please find your State Senator and call them. You can find them by clicking here. Follow up with an email.

Say, “Please vote NO on SB274”

Dear Senator:

As the president of the Louisiana Shooting Association, I am writing to you on behalf of myself, the association and its members to request that you vote NO with respect to Senate Bill 274, which will be before the Senate on Monday, April 9, 2018.

Senate Bill 274 seeks to prohibit the sale of any “assault weapon” to any person under the age of twenty-one years of age. Under the Civil Code, a person who has reached the age of 18 is an adult with all of the rights provided under our constitution. Raising the age from 18 years of to 21 years old affects the constitutional rights of over 185,000 law abiding Louisiana adults. Under current law, these adults have the right to vote, marry, contract, join the military and purchase firearms. Many live on their own, including those who are married or are single parents. Some are even military veterans.

In addition, the term “assault weapon” is both over used and under defined. It isn’t a technical firearm term so legislators define it as they see fit. There are two bills pending this year seeking to control “assault weapons” in some way and each uses different criteria to define one. These definitions both differ from the expired federal law. In fact, the definition has become so broad as to encompass common semiautomatic hunting and target guns.

Denying 18-20 year old adults their right to purchase the legal firearm of their choice, denies them their most effective means of defense should they be the subject of criminal attack and denies them their ability to purchase semi-automatic rifles and shotguns for hunting.

For the forgoing reasons, I ask that you vote against SB274.

Thank you. I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Daniel E. Zelenka, II
