    How many of you guys open carry in St. Tammany? What have been the reactions. I would expect to have the police called on me but I am unsure what they would do. You never know if the officer is going to know what is legal and what is not.

    During Katrina St. Tammany deputies were confiscating weapons, Strain was named in the NRA suit because of this.


    I would love to hear any LEO experiences.

    Thanks

    hi Ike, I live in st Tammay parish and yes i do carry every where i go I like to shoot at honey iland swamp range. its best to get a concealed weapons permit so some piick cop trys to take your $600.00 pistol away from you that he will most likely keep. so if they don't want to get sued they will tell me to have a nice evening. but before i got my permit i carried at all times and you never know when you have to go to new orleans. its better to have a gun and when you need it then not have one when you do. we have alot of that overflo from new orleans here and a thief is a thief and noone will take what i worked hard all my like for. so its your right to carry a gun as long as it belongs to you and you can prove it. and if for some stupid reason a policeman takes your gun you get a recite for your weapon abd the name of the cop & badge # and 9 out of 10 times he will give you your gun back because now he knows he is not dealing with some yahoo that don't know anything. Its important to let the police know that we are not afraid of them or stupid. and if you are carrying a gun and you have been drinking , leave it with the bartender and get a recite and tell her or him to hide it and to tell the manager what happened and i hope they have a safe. and the next day go get your gun. there slidell police are not trained that well and are not lawyers and use that uniform to intimadate you. but when you are carrying make sure that you are in a normal awakeing state of mind. and my moto is never lie to a cop. they hate that. good luck

    Call the St. Tammany Sheriff Office and talk to someone that knows something and ask them.

    I have to point out that you might want to reread your rules for that permit when it comes to drinking. You are not supposed to drink or be under the influence of anything at all while carrying, and the percentage of alcohol blood level if caught is lower than for a dui/dwi. And you stand a good chance of losing that permit. Always maintain control of your weapon.
    Open carrying and drinking would be a different story as the concealed permit rules would not apply, but I am sure an officer would not like it. :what:

    You really sound like a responsible gun owner telling the man to leave his gun with a bartender. Gun owners like thatgive us a bad name and more ammo for theanti crowd to take shots at we responsible gun owner.

    Maybe you should rethink carrying if you think it's OK to leave you gun with a bar maid.

    Ike if you get pull ed over and have a cell phone ( i no you do ) Call 911 and get them involled right away and when he ask for your papers show him your carry permit and when he ask you DON"T LIE to a cop. you are and have a right to protect yourself. and if he asked you to get out the car ask him why! if you do tell him you would like to leave your weapon on the seat. so he will know that you are a good guy and not the enmey.

    Ike, you are right about these STP cops will do, but always remember if you are right you can sue his ass off ! he suppose to know the law. and if he abuses his badge he is a bad cop and do everything to get him off the dept. no matter what it takes. the COPS in STP are traffic directors and one day something will happen that will make them look so good to our nation. most likely the cops i STP are half my age, that should tell them that i'm twice as smart as them, and most likely i am. but i'm the type of person if i see a cop i get as far away for the fool as i can! I hate them because they are cops and they need that because God wasn't good to him in other places on them. and female cops are the most stupid species on the planet. and that's why more of them are getting hurt out there. so ike if a STP want to be stupid Don't resist just tell them that you will see them in court. and when they get their summons to be in court and see your the planiff he might then realize we mean it when we tell them to see us in court. Don't be afraid of these jerks. just get there money so we can buy more guns.KJ54
