What are Louisiana’s laws concerning handguns?
Is open carry legal? Concealed carry with or without permit? I am reading conflicting information and don’t want to get in trouble.

With permit only, thanks to a few Republicans who cucked out on the veto override vote that would’ve eliminated the need for a permit after they had originally voted in favor

Usually with permit (see below for the usually part). Louisiana is a Shall Issue state, meaning that the state can't deny you a permit unless you fall into one of several categories enumerated by law. Felon, drug user, etc. Contrast this with a May Issue state like New York where you have to beg to get one and people who hate you and hate your guns can arbitrarily deny you a permit.

Now for the "usually" part. During mandatory evacuations during a declared state of emergency, any person who may legally possess a handgun may legally conceal it without a permit.

a few Republicans who cucked out on the veto override vote

The override vote needed three more yeas in the Senate to send the veto on to the House to tell the governor to go frick off. These are the three Republican senators who voted for the bill originally but voted with the governor on the override. They must be primaried and you must not support these people.

Sen. Louie Bernard, R-Natchitoches
Sen. Patrick Connick, R-Marrero
Sen. Franklin Foil, R-Baton Rouge

In addition, Sen. Ronnie Johns, R-Lake Charles scheduled a surgery or some other medical procedure to happen during the veto session. The procedure could have been scheduled at any other time and he was so sorry, but he just couldn't be there to provide another vote against the governor. And then, just after the vote, he just happened to resign his seat in the Senate and take a lucrative governor appointed position as the head of the state gaming control board where he answers to nobody but his new daddy.

Imagine that.

That is Louisiana politics and why we are dead last in everything.

Relentlessly work to get these jellyfish primaried out of their seats.
