Guns for me but not for thee. On May 6th, Louisiana lawmakers passed a measure that would basically give them the same gun rights as law enforcement, exempting themselves from the kinds of gun restrictions that us regular folks have to endure.
Senate Bill 651, authored by Sen. Bret Allain, R-Franklin, would expand gun carrying rights for lawmakers as well as officers of the legislature, and servants of the court. The bill would allow them to carry a firearm, as long as they qualify under Peace Officer Standards and Training.
The Louisiana House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice voted 10-2 in favor of the measure, all while ignoring the rights of law abiding citizens.
Proponents of the bill are saying that lawmakers face more threats than the average person and so require more gun rights to be able to protect themselves.
According to NOLA.com,
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.”
