Louisiana Senate votes 32-6 that legislators are more deserving of gun rights than the general public


32 of these Louisiana senators think their constituents are stupid peasants that do not deserve the same rights as they get.

On April 23rd the Louisiana State Senate voted 32-6 to pass SB651. Today, the Louisiana House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice voted 10-2 to send the bill to a full House vote. It is expected to be passed into law soon.

The bill will grant members of the legislature much of the same gun rights as active law enforcement personnel. Legislatures will only be restricted from carrying guns in the capitol building itself.

The bill explicitly affirms that the peons do not have and will not be granted the same gun rights granted to legislators.

Louisiana Senate passes bill exempting themselves from many gun laws! rom AP…

State lawmakers would be exempt from many weapons restrictions imposed on the general public, under a bill nearing final legislative passage.

The House criminal justice committee voted 10-2 Tuesday for the Senate-approved measure by Sen. Bret Allain, R-Franklin, after amending it to say lawmakers must be deemed mentally stable.

“The only argument I’ve heard is that (lawmakers) are not stable enough,” Allain said.

Under the measure, lawmakers could carry a weapon where law enforcement can carry, provided they go through annual training and go through a psychiatric evaluation.

Allain argued that lawmakers need to be able to defend themselves since they are often threatened.

Bradley Gulotta, of Gun Rights Across America, opposed the proposal saying legislators shouldn’t get more favorable treatment than their constituents. “(The bill is) saying y’all are more important than the people you represent,” Gulotta siad. “I think it’s a bit of hypocrisy.”
