Iowa Rep. Steve King (left) and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (right), who is running for president, went pheasant hunting in Iowa Saturday.
MERRILL, Iowa -- Rick Perry often waxes eloquent about his wife Anita as the love of his life, but today in Iowa he disclosed to journalists another "long love affair" that has affected him since he was young.
With guns, that is.
"It was a long love affair with a boy and his gun, that turned into a man and his gun, that turned into a man and his son and his daugher and their guns," an orange-and-khaki-clad Perry said of his relationship with firearms before a pheasant hunting trip in northwestern Iowa.
Perry, who took questions from reporters before the shooting expedition with Iowa Rep. Steve King, called family hunting "part of America" and said that teaching children the safety and the mechanics of firearms is "one of the great American traditions."....

No one said the Press had been invited. When people of this level show up in a small town the press (such as it is) usually show up invited or not.
Can you look at his entire body of work and some of his background?
Herman Cain thinks the 2nd Amendment is a states rights issue.
3%ers still pushing Pandering Perry ping
oh I’m betting you ain’t hatin Michele Bachman.. she was looking goooood at the last debate
Hell, the GOP, pundits, elite and many here on FR used the same tactics to bring Palin down, so lets get it on now for the others.
Who would do such a thing?
I'd hit it, but it would be a grudge **ck.
The Cain surge reminds me a lot of 2008 unfortunately. My ex was a democrat so I heard all about how the Obamabots bullied and shouted down all positive Hillary threads. It didn’t endear anyone to Obama.
Amen, Rick Perry. Well said. I feel the same way.
Rational people will begin to get offended.
The faithful anti-Perry posters show up like flies on honey.
They read a great statement such as Perry made above and flip it off.
They are sick, sick, sick.
I can’t wait for Cain to join up with Romney.
Maybe he should try having a long, long love affair with his wife. Last time we saw her, she wasn’t lookin’ too steady.
as a Cain supporter I’m sure nobody would fight harder to protect our 2nd ammendment rights than Gov. Perry and the difference between him and other candidates who pretend they are hunters is he isn’t pretending.. I love hunting too... good for him pheasant hunting in Iowa
“Last time we saw her, she wasnt lookin too steady.”
What does that even mean?
Well, yeah! Bo Derrick isn't running.
I await the day when MSNBC titles an article
“ Obama describes his long love affair with Reggie. “
When asked about today’s Iowa State match up
with Texas A&M Perry said
“I’m for the Aggies. I don’t get confused about who I’m for,” he declared to reporters.
“I’m not going to be one of those people who roll into Iowa
and say, ‘Oh I’m for the Cyclones,
because I’m runnin’ for office.
People see through that pretty good.”
