B. When submitting an application for a temporary concealed handgun permit, the applicant shall:

(1) Make sworn application in person or electronically to the deputy secretary of public safety services of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections.  The providing of false or misleading information on the application or any documents submitted with the application shall be grounds for the denial or revocation of a temporary concealed handgun permit.

(2) Agree in writing to hold harmless and indemnify the department, the state, or any peace officer for any and all liability arising out of the issuance or use of the temporary concealed handgun permit.

(3) Meet the qualifications for the issuance of a concealed handgun permit as provided for in R.S. 40:1379.3(C) ;  however, an applicant for a temporary concealed handgun permit shall not be required to comply with the provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3(D) upon application.

(4) Pay the twenty-five dollar fee authorized in R.S. 40:1379.3(H)(2) .

C. (1) The holder of a temporary concealed handgun permit shall not be subject to the provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3(D) pending completion of the requisite training for a concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to the provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3 , but shall otherwise comply with all other restrictions and provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3 .

(2) If the applicant for a temporary concealed handgun permit applies for a concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to the provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3 , the twenty-five dollar fee paid shall be applied to the cost of a concealed handgun permit as provided for in R.S. 40:1379.3(H)(2) issued once the temporary concealed handgun permittee completes the requisite training pursuant to R.S. 40:1379.3(D) .

D. The temporary concealed handgun permit:

(1) Is valid only in Louisiana and shall not be considered as satisfying the requirements of reciprocity with any other state concealed firearm provisions.

(3) Shall expire forty-five days from the date of issuance.

F. Failure to carry a copy of the permanent injunction or the protective order at all times the person is carrying the concealed handgun shall render the temporary concealed handgun permit invalid.

H. The office of state police shall promulgate rules to implement the provisions of this Section.
