    Lifetime concealed handgun permit? Be sure you get yours before the onset of schizophrenia, or before you become a hard-core heroin addict. What is the murder rate in Louisiana?

    A carry permit can and is revoked if one becomes a "prohibited person" (e.g., convicted felon, adjudicated mentally defective, etc.).

    So they issue lifetime permits, but they still watch your criminal record? This makes sense to me, because I don't feel they should continuously gouge people for a fee every 2 years.

    If LA is like other states, if you get popped for a serious crime, the license is suspended. If convicted, its gone. If not, its returned. Some states its only felonies, others its misdemeanors and felonies.

    And, agreed, paying one lump fee is better than the renewal every few years.

    Glad to hear that "lifetime" doesn't mean that, at least in theory. Of course, mental illness or other problems only cancel the permit if someone enters it into the system. How many will be detected when they kill someone? Permits may help keep track of potential problems and perhaps make it easier to figure out who shot someone.

    By the same token, sadly, there are plenty of people who routinely drive drunk and/or stoned who haven't gotten popped yet. They have their driver's license until such time as they are arrested and convicted.
