Lets list places you can't OC in LA

Post by herohog » 03 Sep 2014 08:08

Help me out guys. I want to list all the places you can't OC in LA. Off the top of my head there are:
  • Schools
  • Colleges
  • Government buildings
  • Places that serve alcohol for consumption on the premises
  • Businesses/property with a “No Guns” sign
  • Secure areas of an airport
  • Post Offices and their property
  • V.A. Buildings and their property
  • Areas where local ordinances have been passed restricting carry
  • In(and at?) parades or any event where a permit has been issued such as any festival or protests
What have I missed?

How can a local ordinance prohibit OC? It is my understanding that no municipality may enforce a law that is in direct conflict of state law. Is that correct?

Preemption only applies to those laws enacted AFTER July 15, 1985 so laws enacted before that date are still valid so it is wise to check in any area you intend to carry in concealed or openly.

Need to recheck this one as of Aug. 1, 2014
Places that serve alcohol for consumption on the premises

We can now carry in food places that serve, but can't drink............

No, that is not correct. Open Carry is still banned in places which serve alcohol regardless of you drinking or not.
The Laws that went into effect only deal with clearing up some confusion which the AG said banned people from Conceal Carrying in ABOs. The Conceal Carry Laws had always allowed Conceal Carry into restaurants but some police and DAs were using RS 14.95:5 to ban conceal carry. The legislature passed new language clearing up the language so that CHP holders can CC in restaurants and cops can CC into bars.
The ban on Open Carry in restaurants which serve alcohol still stands.

Cannot OC in Walmart on Ambassador Caffery parkway, Lafayette, LA. The asst manager freaked out on me and threatened to call 911 if I didn't leave. I told him he should put a sign on his door. I have boycotted that Walmart since then.

Edit by moderator....
Wrong. You can Open Carry in that Walmart and any other in any state/city that it is legal to do so. The asst manager was not following Wal-Mart corp policy. If you read the July 2015 LOCAL Newsletter you saw the article about the lawsuit Justin won against Houma PD for his illegal arrest and assault while shopping at Wal-Mart. http://laopencarry.org/newsletters/newsletter1507.pdf
In the article there is a link to the court document - http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/granule/USCOUR ... cv-02228-0
In the court document we have the Wal-Mart corp policy clearly stated.
" Plaintiff alleges that “Walmart does not have a
policy prohibiting customers from lawfully carrying firearms on their property” and that it has a
protocol for confronting customers carrying firearms:
Walmart has a policy of permitting customers to carry firearms and to only intervene
if someone expresses concern. Walmart’s policy is that if and when someone has
expressed concern, a salaried employee approaches and addresses the armed
customer; the customer is then asked to remove the firearm from the premises.
According to Walmart policy, the customer is only to be told to leave if the customer
refuses to remove the firearm and is “extremely abusive or disruptive”; otherwise,
customers who refuse to remove the firearm are allowed to keep it and remain.
Walmart policy provides for involving law enforcement only if a customer refuses
to leave after being told to do so twice, with the second such instruction including
a notification that law enforcement will be contacted if they do not leave."

So if you are acting "extremely abusive or disruptive" they can ask you to remove your gun from the store. Otherwise, they leave you alone. If the asst manager of your local Wal-Mart is not following policy call HQ and file a complaint against him.
