Why is an elected public official threatening to take away a common freedom?
UPDATE: Senator Allain issued an apology on his Facebook regarding his comments during the hearing.
This video is of Senator Brett Alain as he comments on HB391, a bill securing the freedom to go fishing on public water.
You should know Senator Allain is a landowner who opposes HB391 and, towards the end of the video he threatens more gates if inshore anglers stand with HB391.

You aren't powerless to prevent the loss of water access, join myself and other concerned citizens at the Louisiana Sportsmen's Coalition.
