Kudos to Louisianans who on Nov. 6 overwhelmingly voted for Proposition Two, an amendment to their state’s constitution that solidifies the Second Amendment in the state of Louisiana.
The new law says that “the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right” and would require courts to apply “the highest standard” of law when and if state municipalities enact laws that act in violation of the second amendment.
Critics say this measure will open the door to a flood of appeals to the courts by criminals who will seek to overturn convictions and gain access to firearms. They also suggest that the new law will lead to a reversal of gun restrictions that are now in place, such as at schools, courthouses and churches.
