BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Debate will continue over Louisiana’s gun laws in the next legislative session that begins in March.

The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1aXLgbs ) reports that lawmakers have filed proposals both to restrict gun sales and to expand the list of who can possess guns in places that sell alcohol.

New Orleans Rep. Austin Badon is sponsoring a bill that would make it unlawful to sell a firearm without verification that the purchaser has completed a firearms safety or training course. Violators would face a fine.

Rep. Jeff Thompson, of Bossier City, wants anyone with a concealed handgun permit to be able to take a weapon into restaurants that have permits to sell alcohol. Metairie Rep. Joe Lopinto wants to allow both concealed weapon permit holders and law enforcement officers on duty or off duty.
