Louisiana Citizens to Gun-Grabbing Judges: Come and Take It

While national eyes were on the presidential election on Nov. 6, citizens of Louisiana were voting on a state-constitutional amendment that made the right to keep and bear arms “a fundamental right,” and put gun-grabbing judges on notice.

Titled the “Louisiana Right To Bear Arms, Amendment 2 (2012),” the amendment passed 73.45 percent to 26.55. It bolsters the exercise of 2nd Amendment rights within the state by eliminating “language within the Louisiana Constitution that would allow passage of laws prohibiting concealed weapons.”

It also mandates that “any restriction of a [gun] right requires the highest standard of review by a court.” In other words, it removes the ability of a judge to unilaterally implement his or her anti-gun agenda or diminish gun rights on a whim.

The passage of this amendment was a brilliant, preemptive strike for liberty on a day when liberalism seemed to win nationally.
