The state legislature is considering a bill that would allow adults in Louisiana to carry a concealed gun without a permit or training.

The bill cleared a House committee on Tuesday.

Current state law requires a concealed-carry course, which can cost around $200.

State Rep. Danny McCormick, a Republican from Caddo Parish, says the training is a good idea but people shouldn't have to pay to exercise a constitutional right.

A similar bill passed the legislature last year, but Gov. John Bel Edwards vetoed it.
