LA:Restaurant Carry Passes Louisiana House 64-24
Louisiana is one of the few states that do not allow restaurant carry.
People would be able to carry concealed weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol under legislation approved by the Louisiana House on Thursday. The House voted 62-24 for the measure, sponsored by state Rep. Henry Burns, R-Haughton, amid protests that gun rights proponents are going too far.
Burns said restaurant owners could post “gun free” zone signs if they object.
