    Listened to the episode yesterday. Louisiana politics are not what they seem. Most of the “Republicans” in our legislature were Blue Dog Democrats at one point and only became “Republicans” as the views of their constituency changed. I say all this because there is more than meets the eye with Louisiana’s “Constitutional Carry” bill sent to the Governor to sign. This bill will likely get vetoed by the Governor as indicated in the podcast. And while there are enough votes in both the House and the Senate to overturn the veto, there are a couple things to keep in mind. The bill was sent to the Governor at such time that the Governor can hold on to it until the Legislative Session is almost at an end. This means that if the Legislature wants to override the Governor’s veto, they would have to call for a special session. This is likely not to happen. There have been very few vetoed bills overturned in Louisiana history this way (four I think…I might be off a bill or two, but you get the gist). Our present Governor is in his second term and is gaming for another job after this one is over with.

      Thank you for the local “insider” perspective on this issue! We’ll hope and pray it gets put into law!
