State Rep. Danny McCormick talks about his proposed legislation to make "Constitutional Carry" of firearms the law in Louisiana.

"It's a pretty simple bill," says McCormick, "In Louisiana right now you can open carry without a permit. What "Constitutional Carry" says is that you can legally conceal carry without a permit. That doesn't do away with the permitting process for those who want to get a permit for reciprocity with other states."

McCormick then makes the case for his bill. "It is our Constitutional right," he begins, "And any government that has the right to take that away from us and sell it back to us has authority over that right and that's not what the Founders intent was.

"(Constitutional Carry) is very popular in the United States right now. Eighteen other states have some form of Constitutional Carry and we look forward to making our state the nineteenth state."
