Louisiana bill lifting concealed carry permit requirement advances; here's why some oppose it
BY BLAKE PATERSON | Staff writer Apr 19, 2021 - 2:57 pm

A Louisiana Senate committee on Monday advanced legislation that would remove the permitting requirement for the concealed carrying of handguns.

Senate Bill 118 would allow anyone aged 21 or older to carry a concealed handgun, unless they’re prohibited by state or federal law from owning a firearm.

State Sen. Jay Morris, R-West Monroe, the sponsor . . . .

See for story.

FWIW, I agree that there should be training before one is allowed to carry a concealed firearm. There also should be some training before one is issued their first hunting license, drivers license, boating license, etc., etc. IMHO. The training can be performed by the state police instead of commercial ranges by signing up at the local police department and being bussed to the training area/range periodically.

In my case, the cost of the training wasn’t excessive and the permit was free because I am a veteran. The only problem I had was that I was rejected the first time because they didn’t like the look of my finger prints taken by the firearms training instructor. I went to the state police office in Baton Rouge and had their expert take my prints.
