Landrieu campaigning with author of gun control bill
Pretty curious way for Mary Landrieu to show she is committed to protecting law-abiding Louisianans Second Amendment rights: The Senator who is seeing her campaign slipping away invited one of the authors of a failed 2013 anti-Second Amendment bill but didn’t bother to show up with him. Landrieu supported the gun control lobby’s efforts to curb the rights of law abiding citizens, and even Michael Bloomberg highlighted her support for his out-of-touch views on the issue. That’s why his activist gun control group is supporting Landrieu’s re-election bid.
Landrieu’s stance on the Second Amendment would be a perfect fit for her in Washington, D.C., which has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. But it is out of touch with Louisiana voters’ values.
“Mary Landrieu can’t be bothered to even feign interest about protecting Louisianans Second Amendment rights. The fact she is also supported by noted gun grabber Michael Bloomberg and his political machine tells you everything you need to know about where Senator Landrieu’s loyalties lie. Having supported Obama’s most recent gun control effort, it’s clear Landrieu is no friend to the Second Amendment or law abiding Louisiana gun owners.” – Ben Voelkel, RNC spokesman
