That last comment was funny. "Lawmakers wonder if this proposal is about public safety or just another push for the NRA agenda?"

The NRA's agenda is the ONLY public safety agenda!

Armed citizens = Safer Streets

Any legislation that curbs government power to infring on the Second Ammendment is GOOD legislation.

Tack

This is where I'm torn. Louisiana law now is RTBA Shall not be abridged. Only concealed carry can be regulated.
But this new amendment scrubs the old language and replaces it with right to keep, transfer, use, etc....shall not be abridged unless under strict scrutiny by the legislature.

Does this mean the legislature can abridge the law based on their definition of strict scrutiny?

Isn't this just giving the gov't more power? Or am I just being paranoid?

it looks like it will be expanding on ones rights but why make the wording so confounded? How difficult is it to read and comprehend

I've read a few more articles and the actual bill being proposed. Also watched a few videos and I believe my vote will be for unless something changes.

Found out just a while ago the commitee rep. From my district is the only democrat to vote for this bill. Kudos to Mr. Mickey Guillory.

I watched a very good speech by Bobby Jindal at the 2012 NRA convention. I'll post the link for y'all.

I love the comment by Colleen
"where do these people go that they feel the need to carry a gun?"

Let's see...
Movies...
Walmart....
College....
Gas station...
Walking down the street....
Political rallies....
High school...
Ball games....
Taking dog for a walk....
The mall....
Church....
Costco....
Aldi's....
Sonic drive in...
McDonalds....
In your own ****ing home...

These are all places where crimes have been committed fairly recently. No place is safe.

If this language is in the Bill I would not support it. This gives the Legislature the power to restrict and regulate as they see fit. More Govt. control, not less!
