Representative Pope takes a stand on Crime

Public safety issues were passed for the benefit of the citizens of Livingston Parish. I supported legislation that provides the right to keep and bear arms. I co-authored legislation to make it a crime of failure to report a missing child and legislation that improves child abuse laws and increases penalties. I supported legislation that places additional restrictions on sex offenders and increased penalties. I supported legislation to increase the term of imprisonment for possession, buying, selling or transporting firearms with obliterated serial numbers. I also supported legislation to increase penalties for crime of aggravated assault with a firearm. I supported legislation that increases penalties for second offense DWI and authorizes administration of multiple chemical tests for suspected drunken drivers. I supported legislation that prohibits use of bank cards at gaming facilities.
