Jindal Tells NRA That After Religious Liberty Challenges Comes Challenge To 2nd Amendment Rights

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a potential Republican candidate for President, is staking out a strong conservative religious liberty position. The Tennessean reports that Jindal, speaking to the National Rifle Association convention in Nashville on Friday, stressed religious liberty concerns for his audience in this way:
Now, I know you did not come here today expecting to hear a speech on religious liberty.  But my friends, if these large forces can conspire to crush the First Amendment, it won't be long before they come after the Second Amendment. Michael Bloomberg is already trying. He's pressuring grocery stores and restaurants to ban guns. Next, he will bully sporting goods stores to quit selling guns and ammo. Bloomberg can not beat Chris Cox and Wayne LaPierre in the elections — so he's trying to beat us in the boardrooms of corporate America.
