Dave Kopel, constitutional scholar, on “YES on 2”:
“In state elections, the most important vote this November will be in Louisiana. A referendum there would significantly strengthen protection of the right to keep and bear arms in the state, and would set a very significant national precedent.”
Dan Zelenka, President of the Louisiana Shooting Association (LSA), practicing attorney and gun rights activist:
“LSA unequivocally supports this amendment. The language of this amendment is vastly superior to the existing language of the Louisiana Constitution in protecting gun owners from future anti-gun legislative action. This constitutional amendment is the most important advancement in the right to keep and bear arms in Louisiana history.”
