wow, this should end well. I'd suggest you go to the FQ side of Canal for Endymion. Always a bunch of little shits over there that might need a lesson from a CC badass.
fricking bitch... What's the policy here about hoping someone gets hit by a bus and/or a couple of vehicles?
As for the topic... My opinion would be to not carry. As unfortunate as it is, the lack of clarity of the law would be more than enough for NOPD to charge you. Losing the ability to legally CC would be awful. I'd carry an easily accessible knife and pray for the best. You know the drill.. Be aware of your surroundings. stay with groups of people.
Also, your wallet and phone aren't worth losing your life over. As much as I'd like to feed a mugger some Speer Gold Dots, if I can hand over my wallet, and my wife is safe, then so be it.
