    Hello, everyone. I'm a new member to the site, but have enjoyed reading the forums from different states for the past 6 months. I have a question for the folks in Louisiana, particularly anyone in the Alexandria area. Do you have any problems open carrying in Alexandria? I'm possibly going to be moving to the area from Arizona within the next 6 months and was wondering.

    I talked to our former sheriff and he says that if you opened carry on the street, "an officer won't let you get away with it." Even though he admitted there is no law against it. On the contrary, I have never been stopped and when in my car and I get pulled over I have told the cops I have a gun on me and they haven't said anything negative.... it all depends on the officer.

    Welcome to the site and the Louisiana section Bernman01.

    If you come to Louisiana with the expectation that this place is ENTIRELY different on every level (not just firearms) from Arizona, you'll do fine here.

    I'm sorry you have to move to Alexandria. If youform a negative opinion of the area, don't hold it against the rest of the state!

    I went to some Aces games while I lived there.

    It's not TERRIBLE...it's just that every other "hub" town in LA is better. Meaning Shreveport, Monroe, Lake Charles, and Lafayette.

    I lived in Pineville for six years as a kid and recently lived there almost 2 years as an adult.

    What did I hate most? Driving on MacArthur for everything. Ugh. Shreveport is larger with better traffic plans.

    doubt is a distraction from reality. fear is acknowledging doubt as reality.

    it's time to tap in to a higher reality; the one you were made for.

    A friend and I do the webcast of home games for the Gunslingers.I won't be there for those makeup games on Tuesday, because I have to work. I'm still pissed that Baron made us give up home field advantage and play one of the makeup games at your stadium.

    After the 'Slingers blew both games Saturday to split the series against Big Bend, we sure need your help. Sweep 'em, so we can get into the playoffs!

    Im from Glenmora originally and have talked with many RPSD ( Rapides Parish Sheriff Deputy) and they have remarked that if they see someone open carrying a firearm , there was nothing they could do. One made mention a few months agoto paraphrase 'As long as they wasnt waving it and threatening anyone , I'd drive right past' I live in Richland Parish now and Open Carry all around Rayville , La.

    Good Luck

    Mean Street: Gunfire a part of life of on Levin Street in Alexandria

    By Abbey Brown • abrown@thetowntalk.com • August 30, 2009

    By Friday afternoon, the makeshift memorial near where an Alexandria man was shot to death Tuesday morning had grown to several bouquets, a cross and other items.

    It's another reminder that residents there live in a dangerous area. They say the sounds of gunshots are familiar -- part of life on Levin Street in Alexandria.

    A woman who lives near the site of last week's shooting said she and her family don't have a choice other than to just "deal with it." She said most of those living in the area can't afford to just "pack up and leave after every shooting."

    Tuesday's shooting was the sixth on Levin Street in a little more than three months time. Killed was 23-year-old William King of Alexandria. The man arrested and charged with his murder was 18-year-old Launey Johnson III, who had at least two felony arrests under his belt in a mere three months before he reportedly shot King in the head with a shotgun, tried to shoot at two others when his gun jammed and then successfully shot at another but missed, police say.

    I'm not sure what you're arguing. This is OCDO, not true-purpose-of-the-second-amendment.org

    I don't care why anyone cares. They can carry for self defense, to water the tree of liberty, or just because they like guns. Those are all protected by the Second Amendment.

    Bernman01 is moving to La.?Welcome..and I think for the most part your open carry will be accepted.But, here too..you will run intopeople who will at times..give you a negative response. A lot of it depends on the location of the state you are in.New Orleans? What can I say? But, outside of that area..o.c. is met with more welcomed responses.But, I can promise you..you willmeet up with some unaccepting remarks, looks, etc. Guess it's that way anywhere? Again..welcome.
