We love guns. Most everyone keeps a gun in their car. We are a "notify" state, so if you're stopped, make sure you notify the officer. Depending on where you are, most LEOs are cool with private firearms carry and will not bat an eye at you. There are some towns down south Louisiana that are LEO-owned and they will give you a bit of a hassle. Obey the speed limit and road rules and you'll be fine.

In addition to the above:

Property that is signed prohibiting weapons or firearms, you must abide by the signage. Louisiana does not have a specific sign format.

Also, you need to ask permission of/notify the homeowner to enter the residence while carrying concealed.

Hope that helps (no means an exhaustive list!).

Have a great stay in the Bayou State!

$120 later a mechanic fixed it by switching my heater hose and bypassing the broke one.
