The state of Louisiana recognizes open carry.
What is Open Carry?
Open carry is shorthand terminology for "openly carrying a firearm in public", as distinguished from concealed carry, where firearms cannot be seen by the casual observer. The act of publicly carrying a firearm in plain sight. Plain sight is broadly defined as not being hidden from common observation; varies somewhat from state to state.
Is it legal to openly carry weapons in Louisiana? Yes, as a general rule- however, certain places and people are restricted by law.
As far as I know, we only need a permit for concealed weapons.
