Illegal carrying of weapons
A. Illegal carrying of weapons is:
(1) The intentional concealment of any firearm, or other instrumentality customarily used or intended for probable use as a dangerous weapon, on one's person;A few years back, a man was open carrying on his right hip and was stopped for a traffic violation. He was ticketed for concealed carry because the officer couldn't see the weapon through his body.
Based on that case (would welcome a citation here from someone who knows the exact details of the story), they reworded the law to include intent. The man in question did not intend to conceal his weapon, therefore it was not concealed according to the law. So here's the question to you. Is it your intent to conceal your weapon when you carry in that manner? Would a jury BELIEVE that it was your intent to conceal?
Example: I once saw some pictures posted on Glock Talk where someone had 1/4 square inch of the butt of their weapon showing and was saying that it was open carry because of that bit of black. In Louisiana, at least, that wouldn't fly, because he clearly intended the weapon to be concealed.
