Restaurant Carry

Places off-limits when carrying:
R.S. 40:1379.3 (N) states that no concealed handgun may be carried into
and no concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to this Section shall
authorize or entitle a permittee to carry a concealed handgun in any of
the following:

* A law enforcement office, station, or building;
* A detention facility, prison, or jail;
* A courthouse or courtroom, provided that a judge may carry such a weapon in his own courtroom;
* A polling place;
* A meeting place of the governing authority of a political subdivision;
* The state capitol building;
* Any portion of an airport facility where the carrying of firearms
is prohibited under federal law, except that no person shall be
prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, if the
firearm is encased for shipment, for the purpose of checking such
firearm as lawful baggage;
* Any church, synagogue, mosque or similar place of worship;
* A parade or demonstration for which a permit is issued by a governmental entity;
* Any portion of the permitted area of an establishment that has
been granted a Class A-General retail permit, as defined in Part II of
Chapter 1 or Part II of Chapter 2 of Title 26 of the Louisiana Revised
Statutes of 1950, to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the

* Any school “firearm free zone” as defined in R.S. 14:95.6
