Louisiana’s Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, told Fox and Friends Friday morning that he’s suspending his presidential campaign in light of the shooting that killed three and injured nine Thursday night at a movie theater in his home state.

Jindal is an avid hunter—“More duck hunting than deer hunting”—and a vocal Second Amendment advocate who’s made guns part of his campaign stops as recently as this month.

In June, he described President Obama’s call for gun control in the wake of the mass shooting at a church in Charleston, S.C. as “completely shameful” and “trying to score cheap political points.”

“I’m not for stopping law-abiding citizens from being able to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” Jindal said to Fox News’s Neil Cavuto, “But now’s not the time; there are children wondering, why do things like this happen?”

At least he’s consistent: after Thursday’s shooting, he decided now’s not the time to talk about gun control. Or about Bobby Jindal being president. Or about anything else, really.

It’s not yet clear when he’ll resume campaigning. The 1.2 percent of GOP voters who support him are surely heartbroken.
