A pair of bills advancing in the state legislature would allow people to carry a concealed handgun in public without a background check or additional firearms training



Monroe, LA – According to the statement, the bills do away with the requirement to obtain a permit before carrying a firearm.

Supporters say permits like that infringe on their constitutional right to bear arms.

From the capitol riots to a slew of protests, many people are feeling a level of anxiety and a greater sense to want to protect themselves.

But, opponents of the bills don’t believe this is the way to do that.

Gun advocates on both sides agree that weapons should be handled safely by people who are mentally stable. Simon doesn’t believe more gun laws will fix the rash of mass shootings in the U.S. in the last couple of decades.

Opponents of the bills argue that removing the training requirement would fill the streets with untrained gun owners and make policing harder.
