The act created a Louisiana constitutional amendment. The voters approved the amendment by a 3 to 4 majority. Strict scrutiny is the constitutional standard for the right to keep an bear arms. The Louisiana Supreme Court cannot declare a constitutional amendment unconstitutional because it is now a part of the constitutional. All state and local gun laws must now pass the strict scrutiny test to remain constitutionally valid.
