Following Louisiana’s further reduction of its already terrible gun laws, Duplessis proposed that the state create an new office to look at how to reduce violence. That he dared suggest that gun violence might be a bad thing got the bill immediately shut down because acknowledging that will “weaponize the government” “attacking the second amendment.”
