An effort to block Citigroup and Bank of America from doing business with Louisiana because of the companies' gun policies fell just short during a fractious State Bond Commission meeting here Thursday.
But in the end the vote was 8-6 to pass a substitute proposal from Gov. John Bel Edwards' top attorney allowing the commission to consider the companies' policies when making a decision on awarding bids on bonds, but not to bar them.
|"As a West Point graduate, Army Ranger, and avid hunter, I’m a staunch defender of the Second Amendment," Edwards said.
No you're not. You're a DEMOCRAT. Thank you for your service, but you should have remained in the military. It's obvious you're better at following orders than giving them. And the Second Amendment has NOTHING to do with hunting.
It has to do with protecting the right of the people to keep and bear contemporary arms in common use that have unarguable militia utility.
And if those companies can make a political statement, so can your commission.
Too bad it made the wrong statement, thanks to YOU.
