On June 3rd, we published a post with news that Constitutional Carry Bill SB 118 passed the Louisiana Legislature. At the time, most anticipated that Governor John Bel Edwards would veto the bill. So here is that post with more explanation of SB 118.
It appears as those predictions were accurate.
Gov. Edwards waited until the final day before vetoing the bill. Senate Bill 118 quickly passed both the House and Senate with substantial majorities. The hope is that Louisiana lawmakers will vote for a congressional veto override. If that happens, then a vote to overturn the governor’s veto will be possible.
Gun owners in Louisiana should contact their lawmakers and urge them to override the governor’s veto.
