louisiana publisher Reported The legislation, Senate Bill 118, was sponsored by State Sen. J. Morris (R-Monroe). It went through with a margin of 27-9.
The Associated Press Explained That state Sen. Regina Barrow (D-Baton Rouge) voiced opposition to Morris’ bill in April, claiming that concealed carry carriers should be licensed in the same way as drivers of cars.
Morris responded to Barrow, saying, “It’s the difference between a privilege and a right. The right to drive is not in the Constitution, but the right to keep and bear arms.”
On April 23, 2021, Breitbart News Told Edwards pledged to veto the constitutional carry law, should it reach his desk.
Twenty states already have constitutional carry. Those states include Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming. (Note: Tennessee’s End to permit requirement will be effective July 1, 2021.)
