Re: Louisiana has an admendment up for vote concerning guns
The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the
right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Article I, Section 11 of the Louisiana Constitution:
The right of each citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be abridged, but this
provision shall not prevent the passage of laws to prohibit the carrying of
weapons concealed on the person.
How Article I, Section 11 of the Louisiana Constitution would
read if the proposed amendment passes:
The right of each citizen to keep and bear arms is fundamental and shall not
be infringed. Any restriction on this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.
It looks cut and dried to me.
Much better language...clear and precise, with
much less room for interpretation.
