For those of our listeners who live in Louisiana, there's a new gun law you should give some attention.
The state of Louisiana has banned "abusers" from possessing firearms for four years but there was previously no process in affect to ban guns. Now that has changed. This law specifically involves people connected to domestic violence cases.
If you've been convicted in a domestic violence case, the state requires you to hand over your guns to the government. That makes sense, but here's where it gets tricky: the law also affects those with an "Active protective order" against them (a restraining order). That means you may be required top hand over your guns even if you haven't yet been found guilty of a crime.
The law also says a person cannot purchase a firearm if they are guilty of domestic violence charges of have an active protective order.
According to Louisiana , you have 48 hours to transfer your weapons to a sheriff's office or third party after a protective order is filed or you're found guilty of a crime.
What do you think, folks? Is the "Active protective order" part of this law a violation of your Second Amendment rights?
