Governor Bobby Jindal Issues Veto of HB 523    |

BATON ROUGE – Today, Governor Bobby Jindal vetoed HB 523 and issued the following veto letter:

July 10, 2009

Mr. Alfred W. Speer
Clerk of the House of Representatives
State Capitol
Baton Rouge, LA 70802

Re: House Bill No. 523 by Representative Ernst

Dear Mr. Speer:

Under current law, it is illegal to carry a firearm “used in the commission of a crime of violence” within a parade zone.  The purpose of this qualifying language is to require that the illegal use of a firearm is the primary element of the offense, not the mere possession of a firearm.  House Bill No. 523 removes this important provision and criminalizes certain acts of mere possession. The National Rifle Association and others have requested veto of this bill in part because it does not exempt firearm carriers with a valid permit under R.S. 40:1379.3 or unintentional violators. In addition, I have signed House Bill No. 44, which creates the crime of reckless or criminally negligent discharge of a firearm within 1,000 feet of certain public events, including parades.

For these reasons, I have vetoed House Bill No. 523 and hereby return it to the House of Representatives.

Sincerely yours,

Bobby Jindal

Kick-the-Nationalists law tossed

Move to reinstate Jena gun-ban fails

      NEW ORLEANS – A proposed law, nicknamed the Kick-the-Nationalists Law, to reinstate a gun-ban struck down in Jena, Louisiana, has failed. The Nationalist Movement had sued to invalidate a law that “firearms are prohibited in parades.” The Nationalists were required to sign and approve the measure, before being allowed to march on Jena Justice Day, in order to protest the Jena Six, but they refused. In federal-court in Alexandria, Mayor Murphy McMillin, represented by the Bernstein law-firm, conceded that the law was unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Dee Drell signed a consent-decree invalidating the law, which Nationalists had termed “subversive.”
      In response, Republican state-representative Gregory Ernst introduced House-Bill 523, which passed the Louisiana Legislature, to reimpose the Jena-ban and make it illegal, statewide, to carry a gun within one-thousand feet of a parade. The measure was vetoed, however. The Nationalists hailed the victory, congratulating David Dupre and his son, David, of Pineville, who had insisted upon their First and Second Amendment rights. Nationalists pointed out that Republicans have been their strongest-opponents and that Nationalists often have to go it alone in defending the Constitiution. The National Rifle Association had declined to even acknowledge or thank the Nationalists.









Constitutional-amendment approved

      Louisianans had passed a constitutional-amendment assuring the people the right to keep and bear arms; however, Ernst, an insurance-defense lawyer and Harvard graduate, appointed to temporarily fill an unexpired house-term, had insisted that bearing arms was inimical to the interests of “business.” Dupre, who had joined The Nationalist Movement, after his gun-rights were challenged by Jena-officials, had received a cold-shoulder from lawmakers, who supported the Kick-the-Nationalists Law. However, Dupre had stated that he would challenge the ban, in court, unless the measure were killed. The bill had provided that anyone bearing arms would be guilty of a felony.

      On Jena Justice Day, Dupre was told by Jena Police-Chief Paul Smith that he could carry his pistol, but not his shotgun, which Smith dubbed “too intimidating.” Federal-officials instructed Dupre to carry his shotgun, notwithstanding. However, Dupre refused to march, in protest, opting to go back to court. Drell ruled, however, that Dupre could not re-open the consent-decree, because he was not a member of The Nationalist Movement. The Nationalists appealed, but the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that Dupre would have to be a member and sue separately. The U.S. Supreme Court, meanwhile, vindicated Dupre, ruling that bearing arms was an “individual” right.

      Dupre became a member, but opted to challenge the Ernst-bill, which would have banned anyone bearing arms in a parade from bearing arms for the rest of his life. The NRA, among whose members had been disgraced Clinton-Cabinet-member Michael Espy, had offered to support the Ernst-bill, banning the bearing of arms in and about a parade, if it did not apply to those who were unaware of the parade. Nationalists countered that the bearing of arms was both a First-Amendment and Second-Amendment right, which could not be infringed by the NRA, Jena, Bernstein or Louisiana. According to Nationalists, “Without the Second Amendment, there could be no First Amendment.”








Ernst HB No. 523
 Existing law provides that whoever commits the crime of illegal carrying of weapons with any firearm used in the commission of a crime of violence, within 1,000 feet of any parade or demonstration for which a permit is issued by a governmental entity shall be fined not more than $2,000, or imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not less than one year nor more than five years, or both. 

Proposed law would have changed existing law to define the crime as the illegal carrying of a firearm within 1,000 feet of any parade or demonstration for which a permit is issued by a governmental entity.
