Permit Holders to Carry Guns in Louisiana Restaurants


According to an article from The Times-Picayune, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will be signing a bill into law that would allow residents with gun permits to bring their weapons into restaurants. The article reports the Governor’s office confirmed that he will be signing the legislation into law. It would allow concealed-carry permit holders to bring guns into restaurants, including those that serve alcohol.

Currently, the law prohibits concealed-carry permit holders to bring their guns into establishments that serve alcohol. The Times-Picayune also reports that off-duty cops who carry guns will be able to carry their guns into bars and restaurants as well.

What do you think? Should guns be allowed in all restaurants, even those that serve alcohol? Or is mixing guns with alcohol a bad idea?
