Louisiana Moving Towards Even Looser Gun Laws

The Town Talk reports
The Louisiana constitution currently grants each citizen the right to keep and bear arms and provides that "this right shall not be abridged." But it also has a provision allowing the "passage of laws to prohibit the carrying of weapons concealed on the person."
The proposed constitutional amendment removes the language allowing laws to prohibit concealed weapons in certain places and provides that the right to keep and bear arms is "fundamental and shall not be infringed." It also imposes a higher standard of proof -- "strict scrutiny" -- for determining the constitutionality of any law or any individual effort to restrict gun ownership and carrying guns.
Does it boil down to the elimination of gun free zones? Or is there more to it? Does this new law allow for Constitutional Carry too?
