Statement by Gov. Perry on President Obama’s Executive Actions
Gov. Perry's Office ^

Posted on 01/16/2013 4:22:52 PM PST by wk4bush2004

Gov. Rick Perry 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."

VERY powerful and to-the-point words by the Governor of Texas. Well-said, Governor Perry!

Wonder why he doesn’t speak out like this all the time? He might have been the 2012 nominee had he been consistent.

A little common sense to a democrat is like crucifix to Dracula. The ministry of propaganda will not approve.

The words are meaningless without action.

Bonehead Boehner could have issued the same press release. Unless Governor Perry plans to back up the words, it’s just pandering.

What does Governor Perry plan to do to prevent implementation of unconstitutional executive orders by Obama within the sovereign State of Texas?

The little children surrounding Obama, do not realize how this President has ruined their future by over spending and waste, while borrowing money they will never be able to pay back. His party has burdened the country with a health care law we can’t afford. These children will suffer for what he has done to their future. They will work harder and be over taxed because of this person’s actions.

I'm more concerned about the Obama fearing Speaker of the House than I am the God fearing Governor of Texas.

Really like him as a Governor but for National office, think not. He should stay here and fight for Texas’s rights, heck with the rest of the idiots.

der 0berFuhrer, emperor Baraq the First, would’ve come out with his gun control edicts sooner or later. But then Newtown happened and he just used the dead bodies of the little children to further his agenda. Never let a crisis go to waste.

You should have stopped right there. There’s an elephant in the room and it’s no longer the Commie in the White House nor is it the Governor of Texas.

In before the geniuses (sarc) who’ll explain to us why Perry is really a moron....

It’s my fond hope that one day I’ll be able to cast my vote for this man for POTUS.

Travis County ditches proposed gun show ban

Travis County commissioners unanimously voted
Tuesday to reverse course on a proposal that
would have banned gun shows from county facilities,
agreeing to honor an existing contract for nine
shows at the Travis County Exposition Center over
the next 13 months.

I firmly believe it's the “political consultant class” that needs to be scrubbed from the Republican party. They are worthless!!! They kill off every good candidate and their must be a motive or reward. I smell rats.
