Tireless advocate for our constitutional right to bear arms
Jeff Landry is a defender of the Second Amendment and a tireless advocate for our constitutional right to bear arms. Jeff grew up hunting and fishing in South Louisiana, so he was raised to respect firearms and learned how to use them properly.
In Congress and as Attorney General, Jeff Landry fought and won countless battles to defend our Second Amendment rights. Because Jeff understands these rights "shall not be infringed."
Fight to preserve and protect the Second Amendment rights
2nd Amendment Rights and the Louisiana Outdoors: I am a life long hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. It is a way of life for many of us here in South Louisiana.
I am a lifetime member of the NRA and
Ducks Unlimited. I will fight to preserve and protect the Second Amendment rights guaranteed by our Constitution. I believe in conservation, not big government environmentalism.

Congressional Summary:Amends the federal criminal code to:
allow licensed firearms dealers to sell or deliver any firearm (currently, rifles or shotguns) to any state if the licensee meets with the purchaser and the transaction complies with the laws of the state in which the transfer is conducted and the purchaser`s state of residence; and
eliminate the requirement that a licensee must conduct business at a gun show only in the state that is specified on the licensee`s license.
Nothing in this Act shall prohibit the sale of a firearm or ammunition between licensed firearms dealers at any location in any state.
Proponent`s Comments (NRA-ILA, Oct. 14, 2011): This bill would remove several antiquated and unnecessary restrictions imposed on interstate firearms business since 1968:
Virtually all interstate transfers directly between private citizens are banned; so are nearly all interstate handgun sales by licensed dealers.
Firearms dealers may only do business at their licensed premises or (since 1986) at gun shows in their own state.
Dealers may not even transfer firearms to one another face to face, away from their business premises.
Provides a 90-day amnesty period during which veterans and their family members can register in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record any firearm acquired before October 31, 1968, by a veteran while a member of the Armed Forces stationed outside the continental United States.
Grants such an individual limited immunity with respect to the acquisition, possession, transportation, or alteration of such firearm before or concurrent with such registration.
Extends such immunity to a veteran who attempts to register a qualifying firearm outside of the amnesty period if the veteran surrenders the firearm within 30 days after being notified of potential criminal liability for continued possession.
Transfers each firearm qualifying as a curio or relic which has been forfeited to the United States to the first qualified museum that requests it
Publishes information identifying each such firearm which is available to be transferred to a museum.
Makes a prohibition against transfer or possession of a machine-gun inapplicable to museums.
