Now all we have to do is to get all the states on the same page.

Louisiana now has the strongest constitutional protections for the ownership of firearms in the nation, thanks to a constitutional amendment approved on November 6.

The requirement that courts use "strict scrutiny" when evaluating the constitutionality of gun laws passed with 74% of voters approving the constitutional change. The law codifies in the constitution the standard used by the U.S. Supreme Court when evaluating gun laws, requiring the most stringent standard be used when determining whether regulations infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. Also, the changes to the amendment eliminates constitutional language specifically allowing the Legislature to regulate concealed weapons.

Under strict scrutiny, regulations must be narrowly tailored to fit a public purpose and it would be up to the government to prove that regulations were constitutional, rather than requiring opponents of a measure prove that the law violates the constitution.

This is a HUGE victory for gun owners in Louisiana and makes our constitutional protections the envy of gun owners in every other state.

At least all free states.

You'll never get Nyawk, Choisy Kommiefornia, or the other open cesspools.

We can just wait for them to completely implode and then move in and reclaim them.
