Louisiana Approves Gun Rights Amendment

Posted on the 09 November 2012 by Mikeb302000
Louisiana Approves Gun Rights Amendment SeattlePI reports
Louisiana voters have approved a constitutional amendment to strengthen already strong gun possession rights in the state. 
The amendment eliminates language in the Louisiana Constitution that allows passage of laws prohibiting concealed weapons. It also includes a requirement that any gun restriction laws be held to a tough judicial standard.
Whenever I'm not sure what a gun story is all about, I pop over to The Truth About Guns. Over there the thoroughness of coverage cannot be beat.  Of course, you have to wade through the spinning and all the rah-rah pro-gun nonsense, but you can get the facts for sure.
The facts in Louisiana seem to be that any and all restrictions on gun rights will now be subject to legal challenge, including convicted felons owning guns and places such as schools and public buildings declaring themselves gun-free zones.
What's your opinion?  The commenters over at TTAG, to a man, support these changes completely often expressing their support with ridicule that it might have been any other way.
What do you think? Will Louisiana, which already boasts of one of the worst records on gun violence in the country, be better off with these changes?
