Sharon Hewitt on Gun Control



I support the right of citizens to carry a concealed gun

I support the Second Amendment and the constitutional right of citizens to carry a concealed gun. I enjoy training with my local sheriff deputies to make sure that I am safely using my gun and am confident in using it. In the last few years, I have learned to hunt and fish, bringing new meaning to me as a lifelong resident in the Sportsman's Paradise. One of the proudest moments for me was the day that my dad gave me his 28-gauge and 20-gauge shotguns. He was so happy!

Allow concealed carry in houses of worship

HB334: New law removes the prior law requirement that the congregation be informed that the church, synagogue, mosque, or other similar place of worship has authorized the carrying of concealed handguns by a concealed handgun permit holder.

Analysis by WWL TV-4 (May 19, 2020): Louisiana lawmakers are set to discuss a series of gun bills, including one that would allow a person to bring a concealed handgun into a house of worship. HB 334 would allow a concealed handgun permit holder to carry a concealed handgun in a house of worship, if given permission from church leaders.

Legislative Outcome:  Passed House 72-24-9 on May/22/20; Passed Senate 23-9-7 on May/29/20; State Sen. Sharon Hewitt voted YES; Signed by Governor John Bel Edwards on Jun/11/20.
