But it’s not just for guns, says Sen. Rob Marionneaux, D-Livonia, author of the measure signed into law by Gov. Bobby Jindal. It covers almost anything you might need for going into the woods or to the duck blind.

Included in the list are handguns, shotguns, rifles and ammunition But it also includes all-terrain vehicles, airboats, pirogues and paddles, decoys, waders, float tubes, archery items, hunting clothing and boots, binoculars, bags, tools, range finders, knives, tree stands, blinds, chairs, optics, holsters and gun cases.
