    NOPD arrests man on allegations he brought rifle too close to route of Pride Parade on Saturday

    New Orleans police on Saturday arrested a man on allegations that he brought a rifle too close to the route of the city’s Pride Parade in the French Quarter.

    Cody Jackson, 25, faces a count of illegally bringing a firearm within 1,000 feet of a parade route following his arrest at the corner of Royal and Barracks streets about 7 p.m., New Orleans Police Department spokesman Andy Cunningham said.

    “No shots were fired in this incident, no injuries were reported and no threats of shooting were made,” Cunningham said. “I think it’s a testament to our officers’ vigilance that we identified him and took him into custody.”

    In Louisiana, it is generally legal to openly carry guns. People who are properly licensed can also carry guns that are concealed.

    But a law meant to promote public safety prohibit people from bringing such weapons too close to parade routes under the threat of a fine and prison time. Arrests of people accused of breaking those laws in New Orleans are not unusual during the Mardi Gras season.

    Jackson’s proximity to the Pride Parade fueled speculation on social media that his goal was to harm LGBT people and other revelers before his arrest, which was captured in photos circulated online. Yet police said Jackson is known to them as an open carrier and that there was no evidence his goal was to harm anyone Saturday.

    On May 18, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office reported, Jackson went into a convenience store in Marrero carrying a rifle and a holstered pistol. A deputy stopped him, and he said he was exercising his "constitutional right" to openly carry firearms, according to the Sheriff's Office.

    Is it a law for parades or just the gay parades?

    It should be the responsibility of the parade organizers to clearly mark the 1000' zone of the entire route.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    I suppose that means a 2nd Amendment Pride parade is out of the question.
    You are a straight white man. You don't get to be the victim, sweetie.

    I’m sure it’s not really that big of a deal. I mean how many parades can the place actually have. I’m sure the law is barely an inconvenience to the 2nd Amendment.

    I feel much safer knowing that if someone wants to legally shoot up a parade they will need to be over 300 yards away.

    Agreed, but a good independence day parade is a must.

    The problem with these "patchwork" of laws at the Federal, State, and Local levels is that they all infringe on the 2A, and are so numerous, and often illogical that many don't even know they exist. It works to make people not embrace, nor exercise their rights becuase they are afraid of violating a low they don't know about. Many think it just isn't worh the hassle. This guy may lose his right to even possess a firearm.

    Just like the concept of "Hate Speech" is causing people to be careful what they say in public or the internet for fear of retribution in society like losing their jobs, or worse.
