After his arrest, Marchiafava said, Police Chief Bill Landry told other people: “‘We have a policy of arresting anybody carrying any type of firearm without a concealed-gun permit.’
We will follow the law as prescribed,” Landry said, adding that the law permits carrying a firearm in an unconcealed holster.
Donald North, a professor at Southern University Law Center, said Marchiafava has the legal right to carry a firearm in a holster on his hip.

North says carrying the firearm in that manner falls under the same law that requires hunters to keep their shotguns and rifles on gun racks visible through the rear windows of their vehicles.

If you’re not concealing it, the statute does not prohibit your carrying of that weapon,” North explained.
All emphasis added by me.

Anyone else see a MAJOR contradiction here? They have a policy of violating someone's 4th Amendment rights because they are legally expressing their 2nd Amendment rights? What's next? You can't bad-mouth the mayor in an expression of your 1st Amendment rights without having your 4th A rights violated? A d*mn round-robin is what it is...

:barf: Utter stupidity and foolishness. I guess that's what happens when you have too many d*mn lawyers running around with nothing better to do.
