    Curious as to why one would feel the need to "open carry" while riding in a urban park?

    Firearms are prohibited within the West Feliciana Sports Park.

    That's what the sign says, but not what the law says.

    First of all I apologize for calling the guy above an idiot. I may feel it but I didn't have to speak. it.

    It is prohibited by law to bring a firearm into certain areas within a parish, including school zones and parks. Even concealed weapon permit owners are prohibited by law from carrying in these areas.

    What you're making is a philosophical point that has been tested through the courts and the laws against open carry in prohibited areas have been upheld. Just to make sure I checked with a former West Feliciana Parish deputy and he verified what I said: do not bring firearms into public parks, it is illegal to do so.

    E. The state superintendent of education, with the approval of the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the commissioner of higher education, with the approval of the Board of Regents, shall develop a method by which to mark firearm-free zones, including the use of signs or other markings suitable to the situation. Signs or other markings shall be located in a visible manner on or near each school and on and in each school bus indicating that such area is a firearm-free zone and that such zone extends to one thousand feet from the boundary of school property. The state Department of Education shall assist each approved school with the posting of notice as required in this Subsection.
    F.(1) It is unlawful for any person to cover, remove, deface, alter, or destroy any sign or other marking identifying a firearm-free zone as provided in this Section.
