Concealed Gun in Backpack?

January 9, 2023

Is a rifle in a backpack considered concealed? A caller purchased a Ruger 10/22 Takedown and plans on carrying the rifle in a backpack. He’s concerned about carrying the rifle in the backpack. Gun Talk Radio’s Tom Gresham addresses the caller’s concern that the rifle would be considered a concealed firearm if he has the rifle in the pack. An additional caller and former police officer calls in to provide some advice. Dan Zelenka joins the conversation to address the issue and finalizes the question per Louisiana law.
