Governor Perry: Hey Obama, it Takes a finger to Pull the Trigger of a Gun!

AUSTIN - From Governor Rick Perry - Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding President Obama's executive actions:

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.


  1. Best Gun Sign to date! Texas needs a sign like this posted. I am putting one up that says: "This could be a Gun Free Home OR Grandma Fudd could be sitting in her rocking chair with her loaded shotgun waiting for the hunt to begin. "Shhh... Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wascally wabbits ... huh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh".!/photo.php?fbid=558426414186592&set=a.105747166121188.12294.100000577155686&type=1&theater

  2. I like the guy that put up a sign pointing at his neighbor's house saying "My neighbor believes in gun control and does not own a gun."
    But, kidding aside, Texas congress representitive Steve Toth is drafting a bill called the "Firearms Protection act" that would nullify any National gun laws or 'executive orders" restricting the 2nd Amendment and furthermore would make any attempt at enforcing those w/in Texas borders a felony.
    Let's give him our support!
