Interesting question.40.1379 cannot apply to OC, can it?
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?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've read most of them and I agree. Having a CWP will defintely restrict your freedoms.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.
About 40 minutes North of Lake Charles, a little town named Dry Creek.Just what part of the POLICE STATE OF LOUISIANA do you reside in?
Yep, the man with 3 Bible names. :uhoh:Home of James David Cain?
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.
