Baton Rouge, La. - Louisiana voters will have nine constitutional amendments to consider when they show up to polls next month.

One issue up for consideration concerns the right to keep and bear arms.

It asks voters whether to remove a provision that gives the legislature explicit authority to limit concealed handguns.

Opponents argue the amendment could open the door to a lawsuit nullifying Louisiana's prohibition of concealed handguns at colleges.

Supporters argue it could guard against possible future U.S. Supreme Court rulings that might affect the second amendment.
