    Question OC At a Demonstration

    I've been told, by several people, that OC'ing at a demonstration, where there is a permit, is a no-no... however, I believe they are referring to RS 40:1372.3 N. No concealed handgun may be carried into and no concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to this Section shall authorize or entitle a permittee to carry a concealed handgun in any of the following: (9) A parade or demonstration for which a permit is issued by a governmental entity.

    If this is correct, this law refers to concealed handguns, alone, not open carry.

    Further, I searched through 14.95 and the the only thing I could find was illegal discharge at a parade, RS 14:95.2.2.

    Can someone shed some light?

    Yes, they're talking about 1379.3 (N)(9).

    Take a very close look at the dicta in Fluker, specifically the part about a mechanistic standard for "concealed." The Louisiana Supreme Court may or may not have backed off the notion that there is such a thing as an unconcealed carried handgun; Bias listed three illustrative examples of an unconcealed weapon, one of them being a pistol belted to the hip, but the talk in Fluker was as if only the word "intentional" saved a holstered gun from being intentionally concealed - which would imply it was "concealed." Maybe the difference is the belt. Maybe its a signal that 160+ years of jurisprudence are about to get dumped. You don't want to find out as a criminal defendant.
