Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has come out against proposed constitutional carry legislation in his state. The move comes without much surprise as John Bel Edwards is a Democrat and no fan of the 2nd amendment.

From Fox 8 Live:

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – Governor John Bel Edwards told scores of law enforcement officers gathered in St. John Parish for a ribbon-cutting on a new training center that he remains opposed to a bill making its way through the legislature that would end Louisiana’s permit requirement for concealed carry.

“Having been through the training for concealed weapons I think it’s essential if we’re going to maximize safety in the public that in order to carry a concealed weapon, individuals need to have training. They need to know what the law is, they need to know about gun safety, they need to have a background check, they need to have marksmanship training and they need to know they have legal obligations to inform a law enforcement officer that they have a concealed weapon on them when they are interacting,” said Edwards.

St. John Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre agrees.

“I’m going to stand with him, next to him, behind him or in front of him because I can’t have everybody carrying a gun in St. John Parish anytime, anyway, 18 or older, whatever it is. The concealed weapon permit process works,” said Tregre.

Constitutional carry is one of the biggest 2A issues in America right now, it is essential that supporters of the Second Amendment push through obstacles like this and pass this legislation. The bill currently up for debate will likely be vetoed by the governor and the legislature will have to override said veto.

The good people of Louisiana keep electing members of the Edwards family as governors and other public offices. Now, let’s see. What was that thing about the definition of ‘insanity?’

Like David said, “What was that thing about the definition of insanity?” Edwards is a Democrat which means there is a 95% chance he wants to take our 2nd Amendment rights and probably the rest of our rights away from us. Edwards is not pro NRA. He’s a Democrat, he lied.

John Bel Edwards is a loser Demorat….what did you expect. They don’t value nor do they understand the need for the 2A. They want “the People” to be at the mercy and submissive to a bunch of liberal elite that talk outta both sides of their mouths. The good folks of Louisiana deserve better but they won’t get it as long as they keep electing a succession of do nothing Dumborat Governors.. What a shame!
