BATON ROUGE - Louisiana voters will face a list of questions in the fall election, constitutional changes proposed by lawmakers, including provisions about gun rights and pension revocation.

Nine proposals to amend the Louisiana Constitution will be on the Nov. 6 ballot after the action of the legislative session.

In the most attention-grabbing item, voters will decide whether to toughen the state's constitutional protections for weapon owners and whether to remove a provision that gives the Legislature explicit authority to limit concealed handguns.
