Bobby Jindal - American Treasure
Gov. Bobby Jindal vetoes bill
to ban guns near parade routes
Proponents said bill would stop a recurrence of this.
BATON ROUGE -- At the request of the National Rifle Association, Gov.
Bobby Jindal has vetoed a bill that would have made it a crime to
illegally carry firearms within 1,000 feet of a sanctioned parade or
"The National Rifle Association and others have requested (a) veto of
this bill in part because it does not exempt firearm carriers with a
valid (state-issued) permit . . . or unintentional violators, " Jindal
said in his veto message. He said he has already signed into law a bill
making it a crime to recklessly discharge a firearm within 1,000 feet
of a parade or other public gathering.
course we all know what politicians are afraid of. But Jindal was
absolutely right to slap down yet another attempt to strip people
of rights with ill considered notions of preventing the
unpreventable. One can imagine Lee Oswald calling Carlos Marcello
and saying, "sorry boss, but they banned guns on the parade
route." Can't one?
