    Not allowed, is the same as illegal? Is this like a NO GUNS sign? Should I ignore, concealed means concealed? I'm not sure now LA laws are, but in FL we ignore the signs.
    They (casinos) evidently have their private restrictions up which is allowed by property owners if they choose.

He suffered a fractured eye socket, crushed windpipe and broken ribs. He missed three months of work recovering.

    The cops were from a Parrish outside NO and in town to have a little fun. A couple of them were convicted and are now in jail, some were acquitted and others were never identified. According to witnesses, there were 6 attackers altogether. His lawsuit against the Parrish is going nowhere b/c the Parrish declared bankruptcy right after the incident occurred.
    is there a link to that? which parrish? I was born and raised in south Louisiana and am very familiar with the corruption there. You got my attention.

    Aside from a few bad experiences I've always enjoyed going back to La. and carry everywhere I know it to be legal. New Orleans is it's own 'lil universe and should't be representive of the rest of the state.

    We have eight (8) world-class casinos in Biloxi. 26 miles of sand beach, historical attractions, deep-sea fishing and great food. And we're a lot safe than NOLA.

    Here are some links:

    Airport: Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport
    Biloxi: City of Biloxi
    Tourism/attractions: Official site of the Mississippi Gulf Coast €“ including the entire coastal region of Mississippi (Check on the free gas link!)

    None of the casinos are posted. The only state restriction on alcohol is a bar that's primary business is the sale of alcohol.
    +1 They have more, and better, shows and concerts too......and only about an hour or so drive from N.O. for a 'day-trip' to see the sights there.

    I am yet to see a casino anywhere that permits it's patrons to carry on the casino floor.
    Being private property, I would imagine instead of being subject to arrest, they would ask you to leave.

    Yep, they have some serious issues in that area (born there and raised close by). I have never heard of an entire parrish being shut down for corruption, but I know there have been some towns that were basically dissolved by the state because they were so corrupt. The local cops were simply thugs in the mayor's gang...often related. Speed traps and beat downs were a regular part of doing business. Really sad as the bayou has some of the nicest folks you could ever want to meet.

    I'll second the Mississippi recommendation. We haven't made it down to Biloxi yet but we usually go to Tunica a couple times a year. Not an awful lot to do in Tunica other than gambling but that's why we go in the first place.

    If at all possible, stay at a casino where the hotel is connected to it. It's nice that you can wake up at Oh-Crap-It's-Early o'clock, throw on some clothes and just take the elevator down to the casino, restaurants or gift shop without ever stepping outside. I keep my wallet in one front pocket, my gambling money in the other and never really worry about security - there's security cameras everywhere you look. We always stay at Gold Strike (now owned by the MGM Group). The rooms are okay but not great, hey we're only in the room long enough to sleep anyway.

    As soon as we arrive, we park in the casino garage (it's extremely well lit) as close to elevator as possible, I disarm and put my gun and spare mag in our small "carry on" bag. Then we go in, register and once we have a room I/we go back for the rest of the luggage. Been going there for about ten years now and never had a security related issue.

    I am in casinos in Las Vegas all the time. I always carry. There is never a problem. It is called cancealed carry. It is completely legal in Nevada.

    This happened before Catrina, 2004 maybe. I'll try to find a link.
