    I have a Texas concealed handgun license and live fairly close to Lousiana. I looked up the laws concerning concealed carry in Louisiana, and saw no restrictions on sporting events. Is it legal to carry in a sporting event arena, if there are no signs banning them? What about in the restaurant areas of the casinos, or the gaming areas themselves?

    This would be a problem (I think) for casinos. Also, beer and liquor are sold at most sporting events, but the point is finding out which establishments/venues have a Class A General permit. I just don't know. Good question.

    This defines what a Class A permit is:

    However, NOTE: the above is RS 26:71.1, not "Part II of Chapter I or Part II of Chapter 2 of Title 26 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950", which I could not specifically find. ??????

    Still, one of the rules of a Class A General is:

    That looks like a casino to me, but not a sporting event. Again, I actually have no clue. I'm just internet guessing. I'd like to know myself.

    No you can not carry at sporting events. All those vendors have class A permits as do all of the college vendors. A class A permit is also defined as an establishment that makes 51% of its profit from alcohol sales. That said, there is also no concealed carry permitted in any bar....even for off duty police. There also is no concealed carry permitted at any parades or festivals due to a special rule for the parades and because there are vendors with class A permits at all festivals. CC at stadiums would also be a no due to the fact that police here can claim a "festival" or "parade" at just about any moment. The casinos here are also a a no, because all of the restaurants are located inside the gaming areas. There are also signs banning firearms at every casino and OTB in the state.
