Louisiana’s Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, told Fox and Friends Friday morning that he’s suspending his presidential campaign in light of the shooting that killed three and injured nine Thursday night at a movie theater in his home state.
Honored to have the #NRA support my reelection. We will continue to protect the second amendment together!August 31, 2011
“I’m not for stopping law-abiding citizens from being able to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” Jindal said to Fox News’s Neil Cavuto, “But now’s not the time; there are children wondering, why do things like this happen?”
At least he’s consistent: after Thursday’s shooting, he decided now’s not the time to talk about gun control. Or about Bobby Jindal being president. Or about anything else, really.
