This was a main topic of discussion in this week’s edition of “Firearms Friday” on “Acadiana’s Morning News” with Rob Kirkpatrick and Bernadette Lee.

Filling in for gun expert Glenn Fleming was Chris Ortego, an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor who teaches Conceal Carry and Gun Safety Classes (more information at highbrassfirearms.com). Next CHP Classes are August 6th & 20th.

Today’s safety tip: Own more than one gun.

In addition to discussing the decision against Sheriff Ackal, Ortego pointed out something veterans will be happy about: Veterans are now exempt from paying state fees for getting a Conceal Carry Permit in Louisiana.

They also touched upon the quick processing at LSP concealed handgun unit as wait times are down to 1-3 weeks for online applications.
