Starting July 4, eligible individuals can carry a concealed firearm without a permit in Louisiana except in the City of New Orleans.

Due to Municipal Code 54-341, those carrying concealed firearms in New Orleans still need a permit until August 1. NOPD encourages all gun owners to act responsibly and be fully informed about the new law.
