    Hey all I'm new, been reading for a while though. I'm from Metairie but currently going to school up here at Ole Miss. I'm 20, so no concealed carry permit yet, but i have OC'ed a few times on short trips around Jefferson Parish. I carry in my car all the time though. I look forward to the day when i can OC in the quarter.

    FYI, I asked a JP i know what would happen if he saw a guy OCing, he said that he'd arrest him for "disorderly conduct or inciting a riot or something".

    If anybody else OCs in JP or the city let me know how it goes for you.

    Take care guys

    I remember reading about that a while back. If your attorney is up for taking on firearms related cases can I get his name from you to have someone to call if I ever need a lawyer? If not, I understand.

    Thanks

    I live in Marrero, which is JP, and I OC frequently. I've had a few people ask, and only one LEO ask while I was standing in line at Wendy's. he was young and said "You know you can't carry your gun like that?" and when I asked why not, he couldn't think of an answer. I politely explained to him that the only restrictions on carrying a firearm pertain to concealed carry, and that I was doing nothing wrong. He kept an eye on me, and sat behind me in the dining area. I suggest carrying a couple of documents showing that the constitution does not forbid it, and carry the AG's opinion on the matter as well. It might get you off the "hook" with some LEOs.

    THANK YOU! Great suggestion!
    I printed them out here:

    I'm a long-time gun owner and user. I have wanted to OC for a while now but don't want to be harrassed by police, security guards or just the run-of-the-mill Hillary supporters. Well, the harrassment I think I can handle, its the getting arrested possibility I'm more concerned with, because you can do everything right and still get arrested. These print-outs make me feel a step closer to OC-ing with complete confidence. Any other support information would be greatly appreciated. FYI I've got a Glock27 with Blackhawk serpa CQC holster.

    I'm still unclear 'where' you can/can't OC in Louisiana. I mean, in everyday life, where would you (the forum) suggest OC, and where is it legal??? The grocery store? Gas stations? the mall? Target? Office Depot? Strawberry Festival (Open, free festival)? The Greek festival (confined festival)? What about when my wife goes for a walk around the block? I make her CC when she is alone.

    Churches, parades, restaurants, and bars is illegal even with CC permit, right? How utterly ridiculous!?!?! Those predators among us are not stupid.

    I want to carry everywhere I go. A month ago my wife and I were in Clearview mall parking lot (broad daylight) and we noticed a guy approaching us as we neared our vehicle, and trust me, he was moving quickly. We bolted for the car, got in, but we lost sight of him, and he disappeared. Freaked me out a little. What if my wife were alone? He maybe only wanted to ask for some change but I didn't want to wait and find out.

    I know I'm going in a bunch of different directions with this post. I am sorry about that. I only want to feel confident and my wife to feel confident to OC. Thanks in advance.

    I wonder if it's time for a get-together by OC enthusiasts in the Metropolitan New Orleans area along the lines of the PAFOA group (but hopefully without the illegal arrests).
