Is it legal in the state of Louisiana to open carry side arms. If so, what are the requirements?

No, it is NOT legal in LA to carry a side arm in the open on public property and/or off your own property. You'd need a Concealed Handgun Permit to do so.

Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up info.
