Since Thursday’s theater shooting at Lafayette, Louisiana, which killed two and wounded nine, there’s been a petition started that asks Republican presidential candidates to refuse or return campaign contributions from the blood-gargling National Rife Association. That includes Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a big gun supporter who suspended his campaign for a while and said discussing gun control wasn’t appropriate in the wake of the carnage.
So when is the appropriate time, Gov. Jindal? Because it is really, really challenging to find a time when there hasn’t been a mass shooting.
Though the NRA pours more money into the pockets of Republican candidates than Democrats, I’d broaden that to any one who takes one thin dime from the NRA will not get my vote, ever.
