    there was recently a bill here that passed both house and senate and made it to teh governor's desk that would have made it illegal to carry handguns (including state permit holders) within 1000' of a parade route and would have made it a felony to do so.

    well, with the help of the Louisiana Shooters Association, the NRA :)rolleyes:) and hundreds of emails from concerned citizens, the governor vetoed this bill and issued the following statement.

    This veto will clarify the current law which states that you cannot carry a firearm "in a parade..." and there was some question of whether "in" meant participating (on a float) or spectating.

    :bowdown:

    Nice. We need more common sense laws like this - especially in Ohio, CCW holders cannot carry inside any place that has a permit to serve liquor. So I can't carry into almost any restaurant.

    Instead of making it a crime to carry a firearm inside somewhere that serves alcohol, why not make it a crime to use a firearm in a crime inside somewhere that uses alcohol?

    The provision that makes it illegal to drink alcohol while carrying is fine, I have zero problem with that- but I should be able to go to a restaurant and have a meal with my family without disarming :mad:

    that LA = louisiana, not Los Angeles. And Gov. Bobby Jindal is a very conservative republican. too bad he didn't veto the neglegent discharge bill also.
