New Orleans mayor appeals to legislature
FinalCall.com is reporting that New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin kicked off a series of closed-door sessions in Baton Rouge to encourage state legislators, in part, to curb access to what he called assault weapons.
Banning assault weapons is one of his legislative priorities for sessions that began April 2 and could last until late June.
Nagin was sued in federal court for confiscating guns after Hurricane Katrina. He was eventually ordered to return all the confiscated guns.
