In Louisiana, legislation to make concealed carry legal without a permit is in the works. If passed, Louisiana would become the 28th state to do so.
Constitutional carry was approved by the legislature of Louisiana about two years ago, but Governor John Bel Edwards (D) vetoed it on June 4, according to Breitbart News.
It is in motion once again, according to WWLTV, and would “allow all lawful gun owners over the age of 18 to be allowed to carry a concealed handgun anywhere in the state.”
Biz New Orleans said that on May 25, 2023, the constitutional carry bill, sponsored by Representative Danny McCormick (R), will emerge from the committee. McCormick stated:
“Louisiana has already become an ‘open carry’ state, allowing law-abiding residents to carry openly without having to undergo training… It also wouldn’t create disorder to let the same law-abiding men and women carry their weapons in purses while wearing dresses or wear jackets in cooler weather.”
A similar defense was used during the New Hampshire constitutional carry dispute, when permitless open carry was permitted but concealing the pistol with a jacket or a sweatshirt was prohibited.
Currently, there are 27 states with constitutional carry in the Union.
The following states are included in this group: Alabama, Alaska, Utah, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Vermont, Iowa, Kansas, Ohio, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Florida, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Constitutional carry laws go into effect in two states in 2023: Florida on July 1 and Nebraska on September 10.
