LOCAL Mission Statement
"The mission of the Louisiana Open Carry Awareness League (LOCAL) is to support, defend and promote the fact that open carry of firearms is a legal choice in Louisiana.

Additionally, we seek to be a conduit for personal involvement by interested citizens to become active in their communities, as well as in state-level politics."
