"It will make me feel safer," Terrance Pierre said. Pierre said he likes the idea of knowing what people are selling and who they work for.

People have been complaining about salespeople recently.

Groups like the Girl Scouts are exempt.

There have also been complains of trouble with salespeople in West Feliciana Parish. But, problems subsided when the sheriff got involved.
