    Open Carry Laws - St. Tammany/Slidell

    Can someone answer the following questions for me:

    Does St. Tammany Parish have any laws regarding Open Carry for Firearms?

    Does Slidell have any laws regarding Open Carry for Firearms?

    If the answer is yes to either of the above questions, do these laws supercede LA State Law?

    Many Thanks.

    St Tammany does not have any laws against open carry, but you can expect extra attention when carrying here. If the local law was passed prior to July 15th, 1985, then it can overrule state law. You can read about slidell's codes by searching for the word "firearm" here --> http://library.municode.com/index.aspx?clientId=11576

    Nope. WE only have partial preemption here in La. There are plenty of pre-1985 laws and gun bans on the books at the city and Parish levels.

    I thought since La was an OC state you could do it anywhere as well. I didnt think a city ordnance would trump state law. Damn thats no good.

    **** it... Stop the slow bleed.

    Unite all gun owners at the same time, and party like it's 1776

    There are LOTs of places you can not carry, even openly. That's why LOCAL is so adamant about people who come to us asking for advice do their own research in addition to the sites/cites we send them to. We've already had open carriers detained, and at least one in Lafayette, arrested by not knowing the laws/ordinances.
    As important as going to classes like the Combat Focus Shoting the ones Bearco teaches or the Combat Pistol classes Nate has been hosting is the need to do the proper research and learn the laws of where and how you can legally carry. You can be the best Front Site/Thunder Ranch guru in town but if you open carry into a Applebees you are likely to be arrested. Carry into a State run hospital such as Earl K Long or any of it's satellite clinics and see if you don't get the fun of hiring a bondsman. Walk around a BREC park with a gun and see if BRPD or EBRSO doen't take you to jail. Iberville parish has a ban on firearms at all parish wide recreational areas. And so on and so on.

    Shit I went into the Applebees with a buddy a few days ago in Laffy and had no problems. We both had a handgun on our sides. Glad nothin happened. I know a lot of people saw us to . They always do . It really stinks that there are drastic changes from parish to parish and sometimes city to city. Why in the hell cant the state law reign supreme ? It kind of pisses me off. It can be all so confusing and a lot to remember.

    State law already says no open carry in a place which serves alcohol for on site consumption.... ie, Applebees. See- RS 14:95.5 - Possession of firearm on premises of alcoholic beverage outlet
    95.5. Possession of firearm on premises of alcoholic beverage outlet

    A. No person shall intentionally possess a firearm while on the premises of an alcoholic beverage outlet.

    B. "Alcoholic beverage outlet" as used herein means any commercial establishment in which alcoholic beverages of either high or low alcoholic content are sold in individual servings for consumption on the premises, whether or not such sales are a primary or incidental purpose of the business of the establishment.

    C. The provisions of this Section shall not apply to the owner or lessee of an alcoholic beverage outlet, or to an employee of such owner or lessee, or to a law enforcement officer or other person vested with law enforcement authority acting in the performance of his official duties.

    D. Whoever violates the provisions of this Section shall be fined not more than five hundred dollars or imprisoned for not more than six months, or both.

    Acts 1985, No. 765, 1.
    Why do you think LOCAL holds all of it's meetings in places like Shoneys or IHOP. If we could meet at Chillis or TGIFridays we'd be there every month.

    Parish and City can mirror State laws but some can vary as seen above. The first example shows locations as one would walk, the second is an example of the straight line method but a longer distance and the third example is the straight line method with the same distance as the first example.

    It did not come out exactly right.
