Gov. Rick Perry blasts Obama-Biden #guncontrol “solutions” in statement

Ouch:

“The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.

“Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.

“In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”

As my friend Michelle Ray quipped on Twitter yesterday (paraphrasing): “If only Rick Perry could have run his Presidential campaign through written statements…” Indeed.

    Seconded.

  2. Drew the Infidel says:

    The Second Amendment is the most explicit of all the passages contained in the Constitution by stating “. . .shall not be infringed.” This is what drives the left to distraction; this does not depend on nor fall prey to individual interpretations of what those words mean. So, get over it!

    Seconded here as well. Perry was my first choice among the GOP candidates last year until he self-destructed.

    While we’re talking about “if only’s”….

    If only Obama had to run all his campaigns without a teleprompter, or with an honest media, or both.

    Seconded!

    If Obhammed had had to run his campaign without a teleprompter (take your choice of which campaign), he never would have made it off the street corner of the ‘hood.

    ‘Course, emotionally and intellectually, he didn’t anyway…

    Just like ya can’t take the country out of the boy, ya can’t take the thug out of the punk, either.

    Can someone list all of the names of Biden’s gun control committee, their political agendas, etc? It appears all of them already had their decision made. I would like to know who they were.
