Weak argument billy. Perry was a farm boy and in the military long before he was running for office. Don't you think he was pro gun then too? Did he carry that pistol only on the day he shot the coyote while jogging? Did someone let the coyote out there just for him to shoot for show? See how silly that sounds?

Whether you like the guy or not, Perry is pro 2nd amendment.

My Senator, Mark Kirk, was in the military long before running for office too. He made up a bunch of B.S. stories about coming under enemy fire and being "deployed" to Iraq, blah blah blah. He has an F rating from the NRA and is a gun grabber. Mayor Daley has a gun collection too and is one of the biggest gun grabbers mayors in the city. Rosie O'Donnell's wants to ban all guns for everyone else yet hired a bodyguard with concealed firearm permit to protect her kids. See how silly your argument sounds?

Perry was for Carter and Al Gore in the "youthful" days, (not to mention ultra-gun grabber Rudy Giuliani just 4 years ago) his fan club here wants us to believe he was being a good conservative when he supported those liberals. Personally, I think Perry is alot like Mitt Romney: both of them are "for" whatever people in their respective states want to hear. If Perry had run for Govenror of Massachuttes instead of Texas, do I think he would have run on a pro-gun grabbing platform? Absolutely. If Mitt Romney had run in Texas, would have posed for photo-ops at the run range and earned an A rating from the NRA scorecard? Absolutely. There's a difference between doing the right thing because of principles and doing the right thing because it gets you votes.

Whether you like the guy or not, Perry is pro 2nd amendment because he needed to be to get elected in Texas.
