Vigilance Is Key When Carrying

From The Truth About Guns:

Yesterday in Shreveport, Louisiana, a man returned to his home at 3:00pm and was met by two intruders who were attempting a burglary. Fortunately, the homeowner was carrying his gun at the time and was ready to be his own first responder.

The man drew his gun and shot both of the suspects, killing one and wounding the other. The deceased was a 40-year-old man who has not yet been identified. The other suspect, 47-year-old Martin Davenport, was charged with aggravated burglary and booked into Shreveport City Jail.

Gun Confiscation During Katrina

This is one person’s experience during a terrible situation. From The Bang Switch:

Yes, some guns were confiscated in New Orleans, LA (NOLA) following hurricane Katrina, but it was nowhere near as widespread as some would have you believe. They were isolated incidents and the majority of those were done by out of town LEO and MIL.

What you are about to read are my personal experiences and recollection of events as I saw them. While not all-inclusive, I think they lend a fiar account of what really happened on the ground.

Louisiana Introduces Bill to Allow Lifetime Carry Permit

Prior to the passage of House Bill 265, Louisiana gun owners who wanted to carry a firearm for self-defense outside the home had to renew their concealed carry permit every five years and pay a fee of $125.  Now, though, assuming Gov. Bobby Jindal signs HB 265 into law, gun owners can purchase a lifetime CCW permit for $500 provided they agree to undergo firearm training and education classes every five years.
