Voluntary Deferment of HB 869
HB 869 would target every firearm modified to conform with the now defunct Assault Weapon Ban plus many other semi-automatic firearms which are not linked to those rifles or having any military association whatsoever. HB 869 would compel current owners of targeted firearms to register their guns with the Louisiana State Police, obtain and renew a costly license annually to keep them, restrict how and where they may be used or transported, and allow the State Police to inspect private homes for compliance. This proposed legislation is some of the most ominous revelations to come down the pike in Louisiana. It has not gone away. Until Cedric Richmond is gone from office, the threat lingers.
