Proposed State Amendment 2Preview


Amendment number two calls for strict scrutiny standard for gun laws. The amendment says the right to possess a weapon is a fundamental right in Louisiana and any restriction must pass a "strict scrutiny" judicial review.

Basically the change would make it harder to pass gun-restrictive laws in the future.

But, the passage of the proposed amendment could nullify most of Louisiana's gun limits and open the door to concealed weapons in schools and bars.
