Louisiana Getting Serious on Gun Rights

Concealed Carry Proposal Pending

[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]BATON ROUGE — A proposal to amend the Louisiana Constitution to allow residents to possess a concealed gun without a permit has been pre-filed by state Rep. Barry Ivey, R-Baton Rouge. It will be considered during the regular legislative session beginning in March.   Ivey also filed a second bill that would have the same outcome by changing statutory law instead of amending the constitution.    Louisiana law currently allows residents over 21 years old to carry a non-concealed handgun without a permit.[/pullquote]

Known as “Constitutional Carry”, other states allowing concealed carry without a permit are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Vermont and Wyoming.
