LOCAL Mission Statement

“The mission of the LA Open Carry (LOC) is to support, defend and promote the fact that open carry of firearms is a legal choice in Louisiana. We seek to accomplish this goal by educating the public about the legality of open carry in Louisiana through the existence of our website, producing and distributing literature, organizing open carry campaigns and events, and by actively petitioning our representatives and legislators. Additionally, we seek to be a conduit for personal involvement by interested citizens to become active in their communities, as well as in state-level politics.”
