    Assuming you have a CC premit recognized by NV, not only may you enter a casino 'carrying' but you may also consume alcoholic beverages.

    The catch there is the entire establishment 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"........I'm not certin, but I think it has(?) I was in the Big Easy for Mardi Grais back in Feburary, I left the side arm in the car locked in my little COM safe when in the casino and while at the various parades........didn't like that.

    Harrah's is nesteled right between the French Quarter and the Garden District right accross from the River Walk shopping center, lots to do and see, it'll be fun. You should be able to carry in most places but double check the casino carry.....and don't carry at any of the forth of July parades. NOPD isn't the happiest of departments about guns in the first place.

    Yeah, the key here is the class of liquor license utilized by the casino on the gambling floor level. Is it Class A - General Retail Permit ??? I have no idea.

    Restaurants areas that serve alcohol have a separate type of permit issued for their portion. Dedicated bar areas within restaurants are off limits.

    I had been thinking since I got my permit two months ago that I couldn't carry inside any establishments serving alcohol. (outback, chillis,steakhouses, etc.) I saw mention of the classes of alcohol permits and starting reading up on it and it made more sense. I also checked with the state police licensing permit division and sure enough the restaurant areas serving alcohol can be carried into. It's the dedicated bar areas you have to stay out of.

    Now for the casions, I'm not so sure about the main gambling floor area how its treated with respect to its liquor license.

    I wouldn't go anywhere in NO without being armed.
    That can be one nasty town.
    But it is a while lot of fun

    I am from New Orleans, if I were you I would go somewhere else. The place is very dangerous and the government system is very corrupt. When I go home every other year to visit family I carry my Glock30 2extra mags and my back up S&W Bodyguard. I was mugged while I attended college there. My sister had her vet clinic broken into multiple time before she decided to move Dallas, my parents have had three cars stolen and my mother-in-law just got her purse snatched in Kenner a month ago. The place is a sewer, I love the people, food, Saints, and LSU football...but I will never live there again! Stay safe if you go and I do believe you wont be able to carry in the casino.

    +1 to that. A friend of mine went down there for the weekend w/his wife and another couple and was jumped by a bunch of off-duty cops in the hotel bar, just b/c he had an Austrailian (he's from New Zealand) accent. 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.

    Iíve been to New Orleans many many times, and never had a problem.

    If you stay on major streets where thereís a bunch of people, and turn in before 11pm or at the very latest midnight, youíll never have a problem. And thatís just common since for allot of big towns including; Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville, Atlanta, San Antonio, Chicago, San Diego, and LA jus to name a few, Iíve been to.

    Regardless, my advice is to always carry justice on your hip.

    State police emailed me back saying, "Your permit is valid in the city of New Orleans. However, Casinos do not allow concealed carry in their establishments."

    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.

    Of course, you could come to Biloxi. We're 80 miles east of New Orleans on I-10.

    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 ‚Äď 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.
