Local News

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- The Louisiana Senate failed to override Gov. John Bel Edwards veto on Senate Bill 118, that would allow concealed carry without a permit.

Lawmakers and local law enforcement spoke out against the bill and strongly supported the governor’s veto.

The Governor said throughout the legislative session he is against the removal of the permit and training. Those for the bill have called it “constitutional carry” and believe the requirements for the permit infringe on the Second Amendment.
