Monday’s Taylor v. City of Baton Rouge (M.D. La. Aug. 25, 2014) grants plaintiffs a declaratory judgment that “§ 13:95.3 unlawfully infringes upon the right of Plaintiff and other citizens to keep and bear firearms, in violation of the Second Amendment.”
If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016

How they will apply this to Open Carry in places where alcohol is sold remains to be seen.

It does not appear to me that OC or CC is addressed, merely possession. There was a lot more wrong with this ordinance than criminalizing possession in your car while in a parking lot. Anyone is subject to search, without warrant, just cuz you stop at a gas station? And you consented to the search just cuz you stop at a gas station? And cops enforced this? That entire PD is a thug outfit, criminals of the highest order, for arresting even one citizen under this ordinance. They knew the law, the wording of the law, and willingly...no, gleefully, subjected a citizen to their jack-boot thuggery. I'll betcha a dollar to a box of doughnuts that no off duty cop would get searched.17 Baton Rouge I Parish of East Baton Rouge Code of Ordinances § 13:95.3 states,
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to have in his possession a firearm, or other instrumentality customarily used or intended for probable use as a dangerous weapon, in any premises where alcoholic beverages are sold and/or consumed on the premises except the owner or lessee of the premises, or their employees, sheriffs, ....
(b) Any sheriff, deputy sheriff, state police, city police, constables, town marshals, or persons vested with police power, may search any person found in any place where alcoholic beverages are sold and/or consumed on the premises, and shall confiscate any firearm or other instrumentality customarily used or intended for probable use as a dangerous weapon which such peace officer may find; this search shall be limited to only weapons, unless there is probable cause for a wider search. Any person who enters a place where alcoholic beverages are sold and/or consumed on the premises does, by the mere fact of entering, consent to a search of his person for any firearm or other instrumentality customarily used or intended for probable use as a dangerous weapon while on said premises, by any sheriff , deputy sheriff, state police, constable, town marshal or persons vested with police power, without a warrant.
(c) The phrase, "...premises where alcoholic beverages are sold and/or consumed on the premises" shall include all of the licensed premises, including the parking lot.

On a default judgment ... hahahaha ... lazy guberment workers.
And the case reminds me of the need to file for my motion for default against my state where I got a motion for default granted for my civil case charging the state with tampering with evidence.
And this court got it right ... a default just results in accepting facts & allegations plead as being indisputable. And from those facts the court made a reasonable decision.
