State of Louisiana Archives: on Gun Control


John Bel Edwards: I support gun rights, unlike national Democrats

Vitter went out of his way to tie state Rep. John Bel Edwards, the only major Democrat in the race, to President Barack Obama. Edwards responded that he differs from national Democrats on major issues, including his opposition to abortion and his support for gun rights. Edwards also confirmed to Vitter that he voted for Obama for president and then added, "but I have never voted for David Vitter." The small studio audience laughed.

Jeff Landry: Fight to preserve and protect the Second Amendment rights

2nd Amendment Rights and the Louisiana Outdoors: I am a life long hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. It is a way of life for many of us here in South Louisiana.

I am a lifetime member of the NRA and Ducks Unlimited. I will fight to preserve and protect the Second Amendment rights guaranteed by our Constitution. I believe in conservation, not big government environmentalism.
