New Louisiana law related to gun owners outrages First Amendment advocates

A new Louisiana press law related to gun owners has created outrage among journalists and First Amendment advocates around the country.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill last week penalizing those who publish the names of individuals who own or have applied for a concealed handgun permit with potential jail sentences of six months and fines of $10,000.

An identity may only be released if a concealed handgun carrier is charged with a felony offense involving the use of a firearm.
