Louisiana’s excellent gun amendment

by American Firearms Review  |  published on November 23, 2012

Some good news out of Louisiana, already one of the most pro-gun states in the union:

“Our founding fathers of this country had certain ideas for the future of this country our right to vote, freedom of speech and right to bear arms,” said State Representative Erich Ponti.

Ponti supports the proposed change that would require any future restrictions of state gun laws to go through a strict judicial review.

“It sets a precedent,” added Ponti. “This is our highest standard. Our founding fathers when our country was founded wanted this level and that we are saying this is where it needs to be and take that job into courts and put it into law.”

Critics of the amendment worry that the courts will use it to strike down some of the state’s gun laws. But isn’t that the point of the judicial process? To review new laws and make sure they measure up to the Constitution?

On its annual scorecard, the anti-gun Brady Campaign listed Louisiana as one of the “worst” states for gun control in the nation, with a score of just two points out of 100. We say: keep up the good work!
