    Was reading through the opinion yesterday and came across this. I'm not a Louisiana resident, but I thought I'd post this anyway.

    ...in State v. Chandler, 5 La. Ann. 489, 490 (1850), the Louisiana Supreme Court held that citizens had a right to carry arms openly: “This is the right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and which is calculated to incite men to a manly and noble defence of themselves, if necessary, and of their country, without any tendency to secret advantages and unmanly assassinations.”

    Page 40 of the opinion, just underneath of the quote from the Georgia case.

    Wow, something recent to carry with me, rather than the AG opinions from 30 years ago. If the supreme court recognized it, how can the cops say no now?
