Concealed Handgun Carry Without Permit Becomes Effective Today

A Message from the Louisiana State Police at https://fb.watch/t6spnjKz-F/

On March 5, 2024, Governor Jeff Landry signed Senate Bill 1, amending Title 14 and Title 40 to allow concealed handgun carry without a permit in certain circumstances. This law will become effective on July 4, 2024.

While the new law provides constitutionally protected freedoms, the Louisiana State Police emphasize the advantages of obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit.

Without a permit, you cannot carry concealed in most other states. The Louisiana Constitutional Carry Law only applies within Louisiana. One key benefit of a Louisiana CHP is its reciprocity with permits from 37 other states. This means your Louisiana CHP is recognized in those states, allowing you to carry concealed across state lines.

Obtaining a Louisiana CHP also means receiving valuable training from state-certified firearms instructors. You'll learn about handgun safety, ammunition, shooting fundamentals, the use of deadly force, conflict resolution, live range fire, and proper handgun cleaning procedures.

In addition, Senate Bill 2 provides limited liability for authorized individuals with a valid CHP in self-defense cases.

Plus, Federal Firearms Licensed Dealers may accept your permit in place of a background check when purchasing a firearm, thanks to the thorough training process involved. 

For more information on the requirements, application process, fees, and other pertinent details, contact the Louisiana State Police Concealed Handgun Permit Unit or visit their website: https://www.lsp.org/services/concealed-handgun-information.

Empower yourself with the knowledge and protection a Louisiana CHP offers. Apply today!
