Florida CCW.....

Id check www.handgunlaw.us . It's free & a good resource. Check it often if you travel a lot because they change the statues/laws/ordinances often.
You may also want to see: www.floridafirearmslaw.com www.gunlawguide.com www.mylicensesite.com .
I'm not aware of any special laws or city ordinances in New Orleans LA.
As for the pork "cracklings" I'm not sure.

Enjoy New Orleans. It is wonderful. You are good to go with the Florida CCW. Just watch out for the insidious 1000 foot GFSZ's. In lovely Baton Rouge, the same.

Go LSU!

FL CCW in New Orleans/Baton Rouge

Here's a link to the Louisiana State Police website. It will cite the prohibited locations. In August, a new law went into effect allowing CCWs in restaurants that serve alcohol. Enjoy your visit, but stay on the beaten path. New Orleans has a lot of robberies, random shootings, and carjackings. Tourists are a prime target. I live here, and travel armed everywhere that's legal. That said, the town has much to offer. My favorite is the WWII Museum. For a neat restaurant, try Patois. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

wow sounds like you could work on your handgun practice on moving targets and if La's law is like Ga. law, yes you can go into a place that sell booze but you cannot drink booze.

Yep. And you gotta notify the Officer you are carrying if stopped on official business. Only 9 states have this rule.

Also, to to enter a business or residence you gotta notify the occupant and ask permission to enter if you are packing.

Only 3 other states have this archaic rule: Alaska,Arkansas and South Carolina ,TMK.

So, tread carefully in the Pelican State!

Addendum. Interpret as you may for Louisiana:

Quote:
The provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3 (N) shall not limit the right of a property
owner, lessee, or other lawful

custodian to prohibit or restrict access of those persons possessing a concealed handgun pursuant to a permit
issued under this Section. No individual to whom a concealed handgun permit is issued may carry such
concealed handgun
into the private residence of another without first receiving the consent of that person

Thanks for all of the replies! I am in Baton Rouge as I type.

Headed to the family worship center for services and then to catch some local attractions. I will say that the Walmart "Neighborhood Market" can be interesting at 11:30 PM. It could have been better named sans the "Neighbor"! Glad I was carrying.

I'm sure to see some great sights today with my wife and enjoy our mini trip.

French Quarter....

I saw a few recent pics on Instagram from last Fri night(800pm to 1100pm) of New Orleans/French Quarter. The tourist areas & streets seemed almost deserted .
I never went to LA. I heard a lot of good things. I also heard from several sources post-Katrina(08/2005) the city is about 60% of what it was in terms of population. The tourists came back but the hurricane damage(then later the big BP oil spill mess in 2010 ) really changed New Orleans.

I'm mad that I didn't go to visit the city in 2004 when I had a chance.

Hi, Rusty. No need for regrets. The city is in much better shape now in many respects than it was before Katrina. The French Quarter is alive and well, and the restaurants that have survived are better than ever, the new ones are great (and now we can carry in them ), and the movie industry is strong. The WWII Museum has an amazing new display (Freedom Pavillion) that's well worth the trip by itself. Come on down!

Film...

Thanks!
I knew the LA film industry was booming, .
Many new film-TV projects are now made in The Big Easy.

Except for Sons of Guns but that's a long, sad story.

Fella's;

Just a little clarification please. May I presume that GFSZ's refers to "Gun Free School Zone"? Is that local, state, or national law? If it's national, I know for a fact that LEO's in Montana ignore it. Too many city streets violate the concept for enforcement to be practical.

It's national. You have to have a carry permit from the state that you are in to get around it per the BATFE.Reciprocity does not apply. So, when in Louisiana, you need a LA permit.

SCOTUS knocked it out in 1995 with Lopez vs USA. Then Congress re-instated it in 1996 under the Commerce Clause.

It's almost impossible to enforce as said. It almost certainly would have to be a Federal bust. Never head of a case yet, although something might be out there.

Old high school....

In 11/2013 I was on a extended trip to my old town. I visited my old high school(at night, when it was closed, 700-730pm). I was open carrying my M&P Compact .45acp in my SERPA holster. While looking at the new buildings, I then realized I may be in a "gun free school zone" .

CB900F: It's illegal in Louisiana to carry within 1,000' of a school zone, i.e., the campus and buildings of any public or private school, under Louisiana law. See list above. There's an exception for your home and car.

Stay within the tourist areas in the city proper and you should have no problems.
Beware of Armstrong Park unless in groups... there's a project near it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iberville_Projects

Avoid the cemeteries unless in a group.
The suburb of Metairie is very safe and has many fine restaurants.

New Orleans is where to eat!
I suggest trying Mandina's Restaurant at 3800 Canal St. for a good sampling of local food.
Another great one is Willie Mae's Scotch House for the best fried chicken ever.

Media article on Buergdons Bodin Port Allen LA.....

Today I saw a news story about a restaurant near Baton Rouge LA/Port Allen called Burgedon's Boudin(check spelling).
The owner/CEO offers any CCW holder or gun owner, with a firearm to get a 10% discount.
The owner said he saw so many anti-gun restaurant & store media stories he wanted to welcome gun & CCW license holders.
Note; the restaurant is closed on Sundays.
If you stop by Port Allen, drop in & give this small business a visit.

They may even have pork cracklings, .

AFTER ACTION REPORT..

We had a great time! We were more comfortable with Baton Rouge than N.O. I would definitely suggest Tony's Seafood Market in Baton Rouge. I had some excellent crawfish boudin. The free swimming catfish are neat and the lunch counter had about 12 workers dishing out both conventional and Cajun specialties.

New Orleans was interesting and although there are lots of homeless, they generally leave you alone after the power of "NO". The rich and the poor live in the same houses, except the rich paint them and consider them historically restored and the lower income folks just call it a house.

As for CCW in N.O. ,I kept my Sig P238 on me at all times and felt quite at ease. Thanks for all the input!
