Foster Campbell on Gun Control

 

 


Enforce the gun laws we already have on the books

Q: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?

A: No. I want to work to make sure we enforce the laws we already have on the books. If we do, we can prevent a large amount of gun violence.

Generally opposes additional gun control measures

Caroline Fayard and Foster Campbell are fighting over which vision of the Democratic Party is best for Louisiana. Campbell, a north Louisiana state senator for a quarter-century, has the backing of the state's top Democrat, Gov. John Bel Edwards. But Fayard has been boosted by the support of high-profile New Orleans Democrats like Mayor Mitch Landrieu and consultant James Carville.

In a sense, this is a proxy battle between Gov. Edwards and the Landrieus. Edwards' endorsement of Campbell represents the continuing trend of north Louisiana Democratic populism stemming back to Huey P. Long, while the Landrieus are pushing the more progressive values of the party.

Fayard and Campbell align on major Democratic issues like preserving the Affordable Care Act--with a few tweaks--and raising the minimum wage. They also depart from the party in the same places: They both describe themselves as anti-abortion, and they both generally oppose additional gun control measures.
