... from Of Arms and the Law. The plaintiff in that case had his arms seized while he was in his boat.
That is to say, he was not in his home. That changes the legal
situation; it shifts from possession of arms on private property to the
legality of "open carry" of firearms, at least for this
plaintiff. That makes it harder, since regulations on the carry
of firearms outside private property are on firmer precedential ground
than confiscation of firearms from the home. Let's get some
plaintiffs in this case that had their guns seized from their
homes. That little old lady who got tackled by California's
finest should do.
But at the moment, the question seems to have become: Can the police
legally prohibit carrying firearms openly under the 2nd Amendment
(remember, freedom to keep and bear arms)? Under the Louisiana Constitution?
I suspect we're about to find out.
Someone who wants to research the law in Louisiana on this would get a lot of links...
