2nd Amendment Rights Reenforced In Louisiana

Louisiana Tells Their Liberal Judges To Stuff The Practice Of Legislating From The Bench Where The Sun Don’t Shine.

Conservatives stand for less intrusion by the state into their personal lives, and while the rest of America was voting on Obama or Obama Lite, Louisiana was voting on making the right to keep and bear arms “a fundamental right,” and thus threw a wrench in the gears of Liberal Judges who insist on legislating from the bench.

The amendment, “Lousiana Right To Bear Arms, Amendment 2 (2012) passed with a 73.45% to 26.55% margin. The amendment strengthens the 2nd Amendment by banning or eliminating “language within the Lousiana Constitution prohibiting concealed weapons,” it also mandates “any restriction of a [gun] right requires the highest standard of review by a court.” Thus it abolishes the right of a judge to implement anti-gun legislation or impede gun-rights on personal feelings.

The passage was a magnificent strike for Constitutionalists on a day when Liberalism was proclaiming victory.

It is a victory for Lousiana, that will set the standard for many more states with a preponderance of judicial legislators writing Liberal laws from the bench; however, more importantly, it reminds us that the bench has been corrupted by judges who seek to corrupt the system by implementing Liberal policy and legislation from the bench. It is a form of Liberal tyranny and now is the time to move forward take back the fundamental system from these unscrupulous judges and let them go back to deciding individual cases, and not writing legislation from the bench.

It is time to regain the spirit of the early Americans. Honest Liberals will not concede the possibility of national enemies within their ranks.

General Gage to Lord Dartmouth,

“The trials we have had show the rebels are not the despicable rabble too many have supposed them to be; and I find it owing to a military spirit encouraged among them for a few years past, Joined with uncommon zeal and enthusiasm. They intrench and raise batteries —they have engineers. They have fortified all the heights and passes around this town (Boston), which it is not impossible for them to annoy. The conquest of this country is not easy; you have to cope with vast numbers. In all their wars against the French they never showed so much conduct, attention, and perseverance as they do now. I think it is my duty to let your lordship know the true situation of affairs.”

    Does this smaller, less intrusive government include the conservative laws concerning trans-vaginal ultrasounds must be completed before an abortion can be performed?

    I admire the Louisianans and what they’ve accomplished…. but there are so many similar issues. I’d rather that state (and federal of course) constitutions be changed to facilitate removal from the Bench….. those activist judges that legislate with their findings instead of reading the laws passed by the legislatures.

    Hi Skook, Just to clarify what we did here in Louisiana. The actual language of the amendment we passed is…

    “…relative to the right to keep and bear arms; to provide that the right to keep and bear arms is a
    fundamental right; to provide for a strict scrutiny standard of review by the court; and to specify an election for submission of the proposition to electors and provide a ballot proposition…”

    The key words here are “fundamental right” and “strict scrutiny”. Over recent decades, the Supreme Court and the State Supreme Courts have developed a three-tiered approach to judging cases that come before them. These three levels of judicial scrutiny are…
    1) rational basis
    2) intermediate scrutiny, and
    3) strict scrutiny

    Remember in the wake of Hurricane Katrina when the New Orleans police, FEMA and the Armed forces that descended on the Big Easy declared that “no one will able to be armed, we will take all weapons” and launched an effort to confiscate the guns of the citizens in our own homes and businesses, leaving us at the mercy of criminals and looters? Despite many lawsuits, most citizens/victims never got their guns back. By requiring the courts to review all these laws at the strict scrutiny level nothing like that should ever happen again in Louisiana. We should also be able to repeal most of our concealed carry laws and those pesky “gun-free” zones creating an even playing field for our law abiding citizens to deal with the thugs that still infest New Orleans.

    ….and launched an effort to confiscate the guns of the citizens in our own homes and businesses, leaving us at the mercy of criminals and looters?

    And that is the problem with gun control legislation and laws. While they are stated to effect a safer public, they invariably lead to more crime.

    How many actual Giffords/Loughner type incidents are there, really, in America? Or the Colorado theater shootings? Or similar type incidents?

    Compare that number to the number of home break-ins, especially with the home-owner and his/her family present. Or the number of businesses robbed.

    Violent crime in Chicago is expected to still be at a rate of 1000 incidents per 100k population. Compare that to the Illinois/National average of just under 500 per 100k. Murders hit in Chicago at greater than 1 per day, better than 3 times the national average. Robbery hits Chicago at 38 per day, give or take, with many of those being armed robbery. The national average is 5 times less than that.

    Chicago disarmed it’s citizens. What it actually did was to remove their primary means of protection against the criminals.

    Geo-politically, those governments who wish complete control over their citizenry, disarm them first. Then, the government assumes the role of criminal “legally” robbing it’s citizens and murdering them at will.

    Good on Louisiana. Am sure the boys from “Duck Dynasty” had some input on this. Wonder if those Marxist judges ever venture into the swamps?

    @rbee: rbee, guilty as charged, thank you. It is embarrassing for an English Professor like myself, no wonder I could never get a teaching position. LOL

    Poppa T thanks for the info.

    I hope that this is a sign that the states (people) are beginning to step up and roll back the Federal government’s seizure of powers that the Constitution does not grant them.

    I would like to see the States pass similar legislation stating that they hold the Constitution in full effect and they only will honor the Enumerated Powers of the Federal Government going forward as well as impeach any Judge that tries to legislate from the bench to usurp the powers of the State or do anything more than rule yea/nay on a case. Hey, a feller can dream!

    @Rob in Katy:

    Hi Rob are you in Katy, Texas? If so then your state has a worthwhile Bill coming before the legislature that I hope you will find the time to champion. It is HB-149 the “Texas Liberty Preservation Act”. I am going to talk to my Rep. and Senator this week and try to get one of them to introduce similar legislation here in Louisiana.

    If any of you are seriously going to approach your local representatives and advocate for the passage of legislation in your state similar to the Constitutional amendment protecting our 2nd Amendment Rights we passed here in Louisiana then I hope you will bring to their attention the Texas Bill as well.

    I might be wrong but I think that electing Obama to a second term might turn out to be a blessing in disguise. I pray that it will force that portion of the populace who have been content to sit on their fat arse’s, watching TV and eating Cheeto’s to reengage in the political process.

    Perhaps the loss of their Twinkes and Ding-Dongs will bring about the civil unrest necessary to spur our corrupt two party system to take meaningful action that the loss of our Liberty has not.

    Texas born and raised, except when I was with the family in Louisiana, so there is no hope for me.
    I will look in to the bills, and get with my Texas Reps. I think one of them is Mike McCall, he seems ok.

    i am glad to see some companies just saying, “homey ain’t playing this game!” I shut down, what was at the time, the biggest Porsche Boxster board in the world because I just got tired of Progs telling me how I should do things and then going freaking bonkers and spamming the board when I pointed out that Obama could just have socialist tendencies – that is when I found out that I was a racist – I am ok with it now. I still have the board, it is just private and by invite only. I find that I am in a lot better mood now, I don’t support the progs and am saving a lot of cash because I don’t need the bandwidth anymore. What part of the State are you in, my family is mostly in Sulphur.
    Nice hearing from you!

    @Rob in Katy:

    Welcome to the club, I found out that I was a racist and a homophobe many years ago. This came as quite a surprise to many of my friends and family who are queer, black and Mexican… but who am I to argue? I live around Natchitoches now and work out of Fourchon but have lived over in your neck of the woods in Nacogdoches and Bryan as well. Take care, I just got home last night and now I’ve got a sack of oysters to shuck and 30#’s of 10-15’s to peel. Not to mention all that beer I can hear calling my name.
