When I called that state rep, I immediately got the impression he really didn't want to introduce that particular bill, but he felt pressured by some Jefferson parish deputy, I believe.
The part about violating his oath of office appeared to have struck a nerve with him.
I didn't try to bully or threaten him, merely asked why he'd do something so blatantly in contradiction with the state constitution.
The conversation we had pretty much gave him an out, a basis to tell his constituent "NO."
This is how LOTS of really bad ideas become "law" in the POLICE STATE OF LOUISIANA.
