Yes I do know how many there are here. I am finding it hard to find one that is actively doing events say about once a week. I would like to have at least one event a week I would like to raise public awareness and show people that we are not demons and that we are responsible adult the only difference we decide to carry a handgun openly. Also I have not regected any other open carry groups nor will I. Raising awerness of OC is an uphill battle and I do not want to negatively affect any group that is doing so as long as they are responsibly doing it.Are you aware of the extant Louisiana Open Carry groups, and have you rejected them, but will be different and how?
Welcome to OCDO.
I'm not addressing your desire to have/participate in weekly events, but you can conduct your own DAILY event by open carrying everyplace possible....

Hello, I represent the Louisiana Open Carry Awareness League (LOCAL). We have tried for years to hold monthly Meet & Greets, range meet-ups, had gun show tables and it has always only been two or three people doing it ALL in the whole state (as far as our members go). It's not for a lack of effort. We simply can't get enough people who want to be active. I would LOVE to have some new blood come into LOCAL, be active and take the reigns and take us in a new direction and get more people interested and active! Frankly, the ones who have been shouldering the load the last several years are getting burnt out.
This is what I do everywhere. To me it is very important to bring a positive view of open carrying unlike the YouTube activists who bait LEOS and such. Responsible open carry can be a very effective in deterring crime.I'm not addressing your desire to have/participate in weekly events, but you can conduct your own DAILY event by open carrying everyplace possible.
That, combined with being nicely dressed, polite, and approachable will go a long way towards achieving the effect you are seeking.
Welcome to OCDO GODNGUN.Hey KOASecurity; I am a member of LOCAL-and though I live across the lake I work in Harvey and stay down at my son's house 2 nights a week. I am willing to sit and share ideas. It will have to wait until March though. My wife recently had a heart attack and I will not be staying down during February. Like many have already said, we for some reason cannot get people to live what they talk. I understand they are risk we all do, but there are risk with just about everything we do for pleasure, fun etc. There safe ways to promote and we can talk, my cell is 504-***-**** David
