HB 89 Becomes Law

Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco has signed HB 89 by Representative Eric LaFleur (D-38) and Don Cazayoux (D-18), into law today. This "Castle Doctrine" bill creates presumptions in law for the use of force against intruders in your home, car or place of business and explicitly states in law that you have no "duty to retreat" from criminal attack if you are in a place where you have a legal right to be. This law goes into effect August 15.

HB 760 by Representative Steve Scalise (R-82), which prohibits the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens during a future state of emergency or natural disaster, is currently awaiting Governor Blanco’s signature.
