Know Your Rights
In Louisiana, you do not need a permit to purchase a firearm, nor do you need to have a license to possess a firearm. While you do not need a permit for open carry in the state, you do need a permit for concealed carry of a handgun.
Furthermore, it is important that you are aware that, even with a permit, you cannot carry a concealed firearm in any establishment that is licensed to sell alcohol or in a courthouse, government building, police station, church/place of worship, polling location, or school, among other restricted places.
