New gun laws for LA in the New Year
(Fox44) — With the New Year come some tighter rules for gun laws here in Louisiana.
Gun sellers will now have to check names against a statewide database that will tell them if the person is mentally ill or has any criminal convictions.
It's all in an effort to keep guns away from people who may use them for mass shootings.
The legislation was introduced and passed in the last session, after the tragic shooting at sandy hook elementary.
