Senate Bill 51, NRA-backed legislation that passed during the recent session of the Louisiana Legislature and was signed into law by Governor Bobby Jindal (R), will take effect today, Friday, August 15, 2008. Now known as Act No. 684, the law reaffirms the rights of law-abiding Louisianans to transport and store lawfully possessed firearms in locked, privately-owned motor vehicles, including while traversing or parking in any parking lot, parking garage or other parking area. Property owners, tenants, public or private employers, and businesses may not prohibit the transportation or storage of firearms in motor vehicles in their parking lots or garages if those areas are accessible to the general public. These entities may only regulate the transportation and storage of firearms in secure parking areas if they meet certain conditions. For a summary of the provisions of Act No. 684, please click here.
