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.
