Good News about FL non-resident permit in LA
Recently, it was posted that Louisiana had no longer accepted non-resident Florida permits.
I talk to one of the Lieutenants at the Louisiana State Patrol (LSP) this morning. Nice guy. Was greatly concerned about the problem and stated that he was in a meeting yesterday concerning the issue of non-acceptance. He also stated that he used to be in charge of the Concealed Weapons Permit division.
During the meeting, it was discussed about placing a hold on the decision of non-acceptance of the Florida non-resident permit until the new legislative session is convenied. Also to be discussed was that in the event that the permit will not be accepted in the future, then they may give us a 6-month grace period to apply and receive a Louisiana permit.
I revisited the LSP website just before writing this post and noted that the news item stating the non-acceptance has been removed from the site.
He thanked me for my input. I have his e-mail address so I may keep informed on the issue. Of course, if I find anything else from him, I will post it.
