The Law Explained. The Louisiana law, commonly referred to as the "Guns At Work" law, provides that any person who lawfully possesses a firearm may transport or store the firearm in a locked, privately-owned motor vehicle in any parking lot, parking garage, or other designated parking area. The law further provides that no property owner, tenant, or public or private employer shall prohibit a person from transporting or storing a firearm in this manner, although an employer may require that firearms stored in locked vehicles on employer-controlled property be hidden from plain view or within a locked case or container within the vehicle. Nothing in the statute restricts the employer's continued right to prohibit employees from carrying firearms into the actual workplace.
Not surprisingly, there are a number of statutory exceptions. The law does not apply to any parking area where the possession of firearms is otherwise prohibited under state or federal law, or to vehicles owned or leased by the employer and used by employees in the course of their employment. Moreover, if the vehicles are parked on employer-controlled property where access is limited (such as use of a fence, gate, or signage), the employer may prohibit the transportation or storage of firearms on such property if it either provides other facilities for the temporary storage of unloaded firearms or an alternative parking area reasonably close to the main parking area where such firearms may be stored in vehicles.This is the current law in louisiana the governor already said he would veto anything changing this.
