I think he was meaning LA specific.

Anyway, yes there is.

If you are carrying in a prohibited place, they could either hit you with a violation of paragraph L of RS 40:1379.3 (Statewide permits for concealed handguns; application procedures; definitions) or possibly consider you to be carrying without the authority of the permit (depending on the circumstances), which would leave you open to be charged with RS 14:95 (Illegal carrying of weapons).

Additionally, there is a statute specifically geared towards charging CHP holders with weapons violations: RS 40:1382 Negligent carrying of a concealed handgun

40.1379 cannot apply to OC, can it?
Interesting question.

Possible derail-> Personally I've often wondered about this ban on Concealed Carry-

[align=justify](9) A parade or demonstration for which a permit is issued by a governmental entity.[/align]
[align=justify]How does that hold for Open Carry?For example, If I want to OC at the Hunt Prison Christmas parade in St Gabriel, would that be legal? It's on public streets, outside of school zones so can they legally prohibit OC in a situation like that? [/align]

That is EXACTLY what I am curious about.
Since I never wimped out and begged permission for a "permit,"
where did I surrender my right to carry at a parade?
I was wanting to ask the same question.I went to a Christmas parade last Sunday,& was wondering if the "cannot carry at a parade"under the concealed carry law,applied to OC?

My daughter was marching,& I did not want to miss seeing her,so to avoid a confrontation,& possible trouble not knowing if I would be "legal" or not,I left my weapon in my truck.

I DO NOT plan on getting a CWP. I was just wondering is you had your firearm on your hip, with a jacket on, and sometimes the jacket would cover it, sometimes it wouldn't, would you ever be in danger of any law breaking ?

IMO, If your carrying in a legal place to carry, and you have a permit, than you should NEVER run the risk of having ANY issue. Right ?

I admire you for not getting a permit. Free men don't need permits.
However, if your jacket "sometimes" covers your sidearm, you ARE leaving yourself wide open for being charged with a violation of 14:95, illegal carrying of a weapon.
Actually, WITH a permit, you seem to lose some of your rights to carry. I haven't read the restrictions imposed upon permit holders in quite some time, but if you do read them, you may want to avoid a permit, IMHO.

I've read most of them and I agree. Having a CWP will defintely restrict your freedoms.

I tell folks all the time that unless they are willing to get a permit for their freedom of religion, or freedom of speech, then they should re-consider gettinga permitfor their freedom to carry.

But the Jacket cover up could lead to trouble, which is the only reason I ever thought about getting a CWP.

But my Heart won't let me get one. ;)

Yep, the man with 3 Bible names. :uhoh:

They needed to put a Cell Tower up in Dry Creek for some reason,

And for Some reason it ended up on James David Cain's Land.

Weird Huh ?

Most folks around here wouldn't piss on him if here were on fire. The one's I talk to anyway, yet somehow he wins ?

If he does something for you, you better believe, HE'LL NEVER FORGET it, and he'll make sure you don't either.

Honestly though, This is all what I hear, I'm not from here, just live here b/c when I got of the Marines the housing market was in the dumps, so my Father-In-Law gave us some land to live on until we build a house in several years.

Everyone here knows my Father-In-Law. Mark Foreman - Foreman's Boudin & Sausage. He sells that stuff all over the south especially Lake Charles.

Ok, regarding carrying at parades, check this out.

Man cited at parade for carrying concealed weapon while drinking alcohol









GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - A man trying to catch some throws at the Gonzales Christmas Parade quickly became the center of attention when a gun appeared from under his shirt.

Revelers had to wait a little longer to see Santa in the parade Sunday afternoon, when a sheriff's deputy spotted the gun on the man near the Blue Runner Factory on Airline.

Gonzales Police Chief Bill Landry says officers took the man into custody, but he was released when they learned he had a permit to carry a gun.
Landry says he did, however, get cited because he was drinking alcohol, which is against the law when carrying a concealed weapon.


We've discussed that even if you have a CCW permit you can't carry at a parade where a government entity issued a permit for that parade or demonstration.

So here was a guy, concealing a gun under his shirt at a parade. I'm not a betting man but I'd be willing to bet that the Gonzales Christmans parade must have ben operating under some sort of city permit. Even without the guy drinking alcohol it should have been enough for the nazis from GPD to arrest the guy. Unless, for some reason, since it's a city sponsered parade there is no permit required or issued for the parade.

Either way, wether it's because he carried at the parade or because he was drinking, I'm pretty sure the State Police will revoke his CCW very soon.

So if the guy in Gonzales had a CC permit and Mark's friends busted him for drinking while carrying a CW and didn't get him to blow and if he didn't blow a .05 or higher then he didn't break the drinking part of the CC rules.

Check please. :D
