Clipazine or magazip are the only accepted terms here. GTFO.

"Officer, I need to inform you that there is a loaded .357 revolver under my seat and an extendable arse beating stick in the door pocket next to me."

....

"Yes sir, I will gladly step out of the vehicle."

I'm still curious about having it in my truck on campus.

I remember reading a thread where someone said it's legal, but I don't really see how.



Here's the law in writing and the link:



95.2. Carrying a firearm, or dangerous weapon, by a student or nonstudent on school property, at school-sponsored functions or firearm-free zone

A. Carrying a firearm, or dangerous weapon as defined in R.S. 14:2, by a student or nonstudent on school property, at a school sponsored function, or in a firearm-free zone is unlawful and shall be defined as possession of any firearm or dangerous weapon, on one's person, at any time while on a school campus, on school transportation, or at any school sponsored function in a specific designated area including but not limited to athletic competitions, dances, parties, or any extracurricular activities, or within one thousand feet of any school campus.

B. For purposes of this Section, the following words have the following meanings:

(1) "School" means any elementary, secondary, high school, vocational-technical school, college, or university in this state.

(2) "Campus" means all facilities and property within the boundary of the school property.

(3) "School bus" means any motor bus being used to transport children to and from school or in connection with school activities.

(4) "Nonstudent" means any person not registered and enrolled in that school or a suspended student who does not have permission to be on the school campus.

C. The provisions of this Section shall not apply to:

(1) A federal, state, or local law enforcement officer in the performance of his official duties.

(2) A school official or employee acting during the normal course of his employment or a student acting under the direction of such school official or employee.

(3) Any person having the written permission of the principal.

(4) The possession of a firearm occurring within one thousand feet of school property and entirely on private property, or entirely within a private residence, or in accordance with a concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to R.S. 40:1379.1 or R.S. 40:1379.3.

(5) Any constitutionally protected activity which cannot be regulated by the state, such as a firearm contained entirely within a motor vehicle.
(6) Any student carrying a firearm to or from a class, in which he is duly enrolled, that requires the use of the firearm in the class.

(7) A student enrolled or participating in an activity requiring the use of a firearm including but not limited to any ROTC function under the authorization of a university.

(8) A student who possesses a firearm in his dormitory room or while going to or from his vehicle or any other person with permission of the administration.

D.(1) Whoever commits the crime of carrying a firearm, or a dangerous weapon as defined in R.S. 14:2, by a student or nonstudent on school property, at a school-sponsored function, or in a firearm-free zone shall be imprisoned at hard labor for not more than five years.

(2) Whoever commits the crime of carrying a firearm, or a dangerous weapon as defined in R.S. 14:2, on school property or in a firearm-free zone with the firearm or dangerous weapon being used in the commission of a crime of violence as defined in R.S. 14:2(B) on school property or in a firearm-free zone, shall be fined not more than two thousand dollars, or imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not less than one year nor more than five years, or both. Any sentence issued pursuant to the provisions of this Paragraph and any sentence issued pursuant to a violation of a crime of violence as defined in R.S. 14:2(B) shall be served consecutively. Upon commitment to the Department of Public Safety and Corrections after conviction for a crime committed on school property, at a school-sponsored function or in a firearm-free zone, the department shall have the offender evaluated through appropriate examinations or tests conducted under the supervision of the department. Such evaluation shall be made within thirty days of the order of commitment.

You can conceal it in your car. Your car is an extension of your home.

re: Is it legal to have a loaded pistol in my truck?


If you cross the Sabine River and come into Texas, it goes like this:

Conceal carry in your vehicle: Legal. No need to advise law enforcement. I never have. Below is why.

Carry in your vehicle in public view: Illegal. You're going to be arrested. Doesn't make a damn bit of sense.

Now why I don't tell LE I have a weapon onboard. On more than one occasion, some a-hole whose wife said "no" that morning gets an attitude and hauls in the driver for openly carrying a weapon in the vehicle when it was concealed.

Driver says "Hey, it was concealed...I had to tell you about it."

Cop says "You didn't tell me anything. I saw it laying out in the open and you were acting suspicious."

If you drive through Houston, city police will arrest you even though it's not against the law. Judge will kick the charges, but you had to "ride the ride" in the process.

re: Is it legal to have a loaded pistol in my truck?


It is definitely legal to be concealed or open in a vehicle. I've been pulled over twice before I had a permit. One officer asked me to step out so he could check it and the other just said "ok" after I told him it was in my center console.

And as for carrying in your car on a campus, by law you are protected, but I think this may be a case of state law versus school policy. Meaning, if the university finds out, they may be able to do some sort of disciplinary action even if you're protected by state law. You wouldn't be arrested or anything but who knows what they would do to you in terms of enrollment.

That being said, I am completely and entirely against any restriction as ridiculous as that. I'm glad LA had SB303 pass because hopefully that will open the door to more gun-friendly legislation. I'm all for it.

OP should know that LE really appreciates it if you tell them first, instead of them asking and finding out you have one.


I may start a fight here, but I disagree w/ informing law enforcement of a firearm in the vehicle in the course of a routine traffic stop. If there is an interaction w/ LEO, e.g. routine traffic stop, I am required by LA state to inform LEO that I'm carrying concealed. In addition, I plan on telling LEO outside the state of LA that I'm carrying concealed.

OTOH, I'm NOT required to tell LEO that I have a firearm in my vehicle that I'm NOT carrying concealed. To me, the fact that it's just in my vehicle, yet not on my person concealed, is a different standard. If the LEO has a reason to search my vehicle, I will then alert him that he'll find a firearm (or multiples), where it is and it's condition. The few times I've been pulled over, I've never been asked if there's a firearm in my vehicle. Never heard of any of my friends or family being asked that, either. If it's just a routine traffic stop, why's he going to ask that?

I don't really see the reason to tell LEO of a firearm in the vehicle for a routine traffic stop. Maybe I'm wrong. Do the rest of y'all always tell LEO when you have a firearm in your vehicle. If so, why?

You don't have to tell the LEO but it's a good idea.

For one if the officer is competent he should be asking you if you have a weapon on your person or in the vehicle within the first few statements made during the stop.


Now that's out of the way.

Lets say you get pulled over and don't tell him about the gun or even worse you tell him you don't have one when asked (which is legal). Say the officer asks you to get a document from the vehicle. While you are reaching in for the papers say the officer spots a portion of the weapon sticking out. This has the possibility to be a very bad and tense situation. You are likely to get a gun put in your face at a minimum. If you lied about there being one there then prepared to have your person and vehicle thoroughly searched.

I do. I feel it is just a courtesy. It generally puts them more at ease to know that you have nothing to hide. I've been let go on 2 different occasions because I informed the officer (or maybe because of my CHL - generally gives you a leg up).

I always tell them. It somewhat puts them at ease, like I'm a good law abiding citizen which by looking at me, one wouldn't think otherwise anyway. They have only asked me to remove it once. That time he complimented me on having a nice gun. Being a fellow gun enthusiast has never gotten me out of any tickets though.
