Nearly 40 States Require Face Masks. But Is It Constitutional?

• USA Today and The Gateway Pundit

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) said Wednesday in a 9-page legal opinion that the Democrat governor's mask mandate is "likely unconstitutional and unenforceable."

Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards over the weekend announced a statewide mask mandate and additional restrictions for bars.

The Republican Attorney General said the Governor's additional restrictions being placed on citizens has no rhyme or reason and doesn't appear to serve achieving a goal.

"The governor's recent mandate does not appear to serve achieving any type of goal or mission in a manner consistent with statutory authority and constitutional provisions," Landry wrote.

Landry also said the new mandate cannot be enforced with financial or criminal penalties.
