Louisiana voters have approved a constitutional amendment to strengthen already strong gun possession rights in the state.

Proposed Amendment 2 on Tuesday’s ballot was drawn up to eliminate language in the Louisiana Constitution that would allow passage of laws prohibiting concealed weapons. It also includes a requirement that any gun restriction laws be held to a tough judicial standard.

Opponents said the measure could spell the end to gun prohibitions on college campuses, churches and government buildings, while opening a door for criminals convicted of gun-related crimes to appeal their court cases.
