Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- While national eyes were on the presidential election on Nov. 6, citizens of Louisiana were voting on a state-constitutional amendment that made the right to keep and bear arms “a fundamental right,” and put gun-grabbing judges on notice.

Titled the “Louisiana Right To Bear Arms, Amendment 2 (2012),” the amendment passed 73.45 percent to 26.55. It bolsters the exercise of 2nd Amendment rights within the state by eliminating “language within the Louisiana Constitution that would allow passage of laws prohibiting concealed weapons.”

It also mandates that “any restriction of a [gun] right requires the highest standard of review by a court.” In other words, it removes the ability of a judge to unilaterally implement his or her anti-gun agenda or diminish gun rights on a whim.

The passage of this amendment was a brilliant, preemptive strike for liberty on a day when liberalism seemed to win nationally.

Like the Texans who refused to give up their cannon at the Battle of Gonzales in 1835, our Louisiana brothers and sisters have hunkered down with their liberty intact via the “Right to Bear Arms Amendment.”

Consequently, the message coming out of Louisiana is the same message that came out of Gonzales nearly two centuries ago, “Come and Take It.”

    Correct me if wrong but, to secede from the United States, a Congressional approval is needed. There is way too much at stake on both State and Federal level to let that happen. One of those is the loss of military equipment unless the state proves ownership. I'm not sure of the rest so any additional info is greatly appreciated. Thanks
