    Dan Zelenka, an attorney and president of the Louisiana Shooting Association, said the move by NOPD was "an attempt to get around the fact the New Orleans delegation was unable to pass legislation making the French Quarter either a gun-free zone or a permit-only zone."

    Recruit trainings have already begun at the new classroom in the Eighth District station, now considered an adjunct to the NOPD's existing training facility at 4650 Paris Ave. Kirkpatrick said she's already taken the new concealed carry class.

    It wasn't immediately clear Monday just what is required to be a vocational technical school in Louisiana.

    Zelenka voiced concerns about whether the NOPD training academy meets the definition, part of which appears to dictates the school must fall under the Board of Supervisors of Community and Technical Colleges.

    “That is the question,” Zelenka said. “Is it a vocational technical school as defined by the law?"

    If not, he argued, it can't create a gun-free zone under the law.

    Attorney General Liz Murrill, who along with Republican Gov. Jeff Landry backed the new state law, issued a statement Monday night critical of the NOPD’s move.

    “I’m working hard to help keep New Orleans safe,” Murrill said. “But the city cannot avoid state law by unilaterally designating police stations “vo-tech locations” -- that’s just not how our community college and vocational-technical system is set up.”

    The NOPD said it is working on permits. Once approved, signs will be installed and the city’s gun-free zone map will be updated.

    The state’s permitless concealed carry law goes into effect Thursday (July 4) statewide, but the New Orleans officials claimed it won’t take effect until Aug. 1 in New Orleans, when an existing ordinance expires.

    Murrill also disagreed with that contention.

    “State law preempts municipal ordinances which conflict, so the ordinance yields to state law,” Murrill said in her statement. “I certainly hope the NOPD isn’t violating people’s rights by making up their own rules, which is why the department is under a federal consent decree.”

    I keep hearing that in the media and can't find anything online about the so-called ordinance that pushes the date to Aug. 1. Anyone have a link to it?

    The ordinance is easy to find but there's nothing in the ordinance regarding an expiration date.

    Seems pretty simple to me. They want to be a school, then they need to fall under the jurisdiction of the Board of Supervisors of Community and Technical Colleges.

    Easy peasy!
    And guess who appoints 15 of the 17 members of that board. The Governor. The two remaining members are students.

    It is utterly amazing to me, how ideologically trapped democrats and phony liberals handle EVERYTHING when they don't get their way in the courts, in the Legislature, or in the arena of public opinion. And you can expose the phony's because they can't wait to say how unfair or corrupt the process is when it doesn't go their way.

    This effort by these nit wits down there to circumvent the will of the Legislature explains all you need to know. They are all garbage!

    Someone will challenge this in court. Doesn’t the restaurant thing go back to the old Class X license versus the other kind?

    Gov Jeff is already shooting this down saying if this is not a legal school & a cop searches someone carrying in the gun free school zone then the LEO could be in trouble for an illegal search. If you make up a fake school then you have a fake gun free zone.

    This for the CHP.

    They are playing with the original statewide pre-emption law which contained a grandfather clause for local laws passed before that pre-emption went into effect.

    The new pre-emption law takes effect August 1 this year and will eliminate the grandfathering, thereby creating the time gap.

    Petty, but I was actually shocked during this year's session that no one - not politicians, not gun-banners, not media - fought the new pre-emption bill.

    The Attorney General warned them about lawsuits from this. They would be US 1983 Deprivation of Civil Rights Under Color of Law. This law contains a section regarding "conspiracy" which I think would mean that any of the individuals who concocted this plan could be held liable for HUGE fines. This law also is one of the few that has a federal Death Penalty, should the deprivation of rights be caused by a death.

    Am I reading some things sideways here, or is this already gonna need some tweaking? Before, someone with a permit was able to carry within 1,000' of a school (still not on campus), as provided by 14:95.2C(9). Now, a person 18 or older and not otherwise ineligible can carry concealed without a permit, but according to 40:1379.3M, not in any "zone" where prohibited by federal or state law, which makes it sound like permit or not, no "zone" like a firearm free zone around a school is allowable for carry, despite what the exemption under 14:95.2C(9) declares for permit holders. Sounds ambiguous to me. Was something actually lost for permit holders here, and excluded for constitutional carriers where it should have been included just like the permit holders had before?

    14:95. Illegal carrying of weapons
    M. The provisions of Paragraph (A)(1) of this Section shall not apply to any person who is eighteen years of age or older and is not prohibited from possessing a firearm under R.S. 14:95.1, 18 U.S.C. 922(g), or any other state or federal law.
    N. Any person lawfully carrying a handgun pursuant to Subsection M of this Section shall be subject to the restrictions contained in R.S. 40:1379.3(I), (M), (N), and (O).

    14:95.2 Carrying a firearm, or dangerous weapon, by a student or nonstudent on school property, at school-sponsored functions or firearm-free zone
    C. The provisions of this Section shall not apply to:
    (9) Any person who has a valid concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to R.S. 40:1379.1 or 1379.3 and who carries a concealed handgun within one thousand feet of any school campus.


    40:1379.3. Statewide permits for concealed handguns; application procedures; definitions
    M. No concealed handgun may be carried into and no concealed handgun permit shall be valid or entitle any permittee to carry a concealed handgun in any facility, building, location, zone, or area in which firearms are banned by state or federal law.

    So, as I read this, I can carry concealed in the gun free zones of NOLA? I am planning a visit to the WWII museum with my grandson and have been concerned. I also have read that NOPD has thermal cameras in many locations that can ID a concealed handgun. I am not wild about NOPD coming in hot on me with my grandson present. Can anyone verify that?
