    Sorry for the passing of your Father. We are losing the greatest generation on a daily basis. I look to the older generation for wisdom and guidance because one of these days (and it is coming all too soon) we will be it. Just imagine the day when we look around and we are the older wiser ones without them here to help us. Sobering thought. So much history, sacrifice, honor, wisdom...we owe our Veterans a debt that cannot be repaid. We can only live our lives in a manner that brings honor to their sacrifices. With all due respect to your Father and all Veterans and their families, Thank You.

    Usually when somebody is acting in a way that most people would find strange,It raises there sense of awareness,not unlike animals in the wild always wary of being attacked.It's possible that the funeral director has had runins with the individual in the past

    I carried at my Mom's funeral 2 years ago. Why should I do anything differently just because I'm going to a funeral? Would she want me and my family to be defenseless and vulnerable in her honor? I don't think so.

    Oh and I hope Supergrade is not a troll picking on one of our members at a time of loss.

    The funeral director who did my father-in-law's funeral 4 years ago carries concealed. I have shot with him a couple of times and he is pretty decent. Says you never know when you might need to use it so it is always under his suit jacket.

    Sorry for your loss. It's not too many of those fine WW2 veterans left around now. They paid a big price for this country. My dad was a WW2 veteran as well. I'm happy that the director handled things without too much trouble. It goes to show that we need to carry everywhere.

    Isn't it illegal to be armed in a cemetary/funeral in Louisianna?

    Prohibited Locations
    R.S. 40:1379.3 (N) states that no concealed handgun may be carried into and no concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to this Section shall authorize or entitle a permittee to carry a concealed handgun in any of the following:
    A law enforcement office, station, or building;
    A detention facility, prison, or jail;
    A courthouse or courtroom, provided that a judge may carry such a weapon in his own courtroom;
    A polling place;
    A meeting place of the governing authority of a political subdivision;
    The state capitol building;
    Any portion of an airport facility where the carrying of firearms is prohibited under federal law, except that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, if the firearm is encased for shipment, for the purpose of checking such firearm as lawful baggage;
    Any church, synagogue, mosque or similar place of worship;
    A parade or demonstration for which a permit is issued by a governmental entity;
    Any portion of the permitted area of an establishment that has been granted a Class A-General retail permit, as defined in Part II of Chapter 1 or Part II of Chapter 2 of Title 26 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950, to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises.
    Any school "firearm free zone" as defined in R.S. 14:95.6.
    The provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3 (N) shall not limit the right of a property owner, lessee, or other lawful custodian to prohibit or restrict access of those persons possessing a concealed handgun pursuant to a permit issued under this Section. No individual to whom a concealed handgun permit is issued may carry such concealed handgun into the private residence of another without first receiving the consent of that person.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    My Dad was also a WWII veteran, and I have great gratitude for the service your Father rendered to our nation. Through years of pastoring, and associating with funeral home personnel, I know times of intense grieving can bring out the worst in some folk... which should heighten our SA, not lessen it. Glad this particular occasion worked out as it did for you, ppk.
