BETHESDA, Md. A pro-gun control group has slammed Texas Gov. Rick Perry for inappropriate timing, calling it callous for him to visit a Beretta USA gun factory just two days after a mass shooting left a dozen innocent people dead at the nearby Washington Navy Yard.
Its callous that Gov. Perry would show so little sensitivity, to victims the Navy Yard rampage, said Jenifer Pauliukonis, Maryland head of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
Listen, theres always anti-gun individuals, Perry responded, asked about the criticism after meeting with business leaders and top Maryland Republicans at Mortons steakhouse in Bethesda, in suburban Washington. The fact is, Im a pro-Second Amendment guy. Texas is a pro-Second Amendment state. Beretta has been a great manufacture in Maryland and they feel not only under-appreciated, they feel under attack.

I think it is pretty callous to leave the people at these military installations unarmed and unable to protect themselves from crazies and terrorists.
Maybe Perry should “shake his groove thing” like Barry. Apparently a party was in order following the shooting - is that the new Presidential Protocol? After a tragedy, the first thing is to criticize political enemies, and then throw an awesome party.
Maybe he should have gone to visit the people who make violent video games.
Or a mental hospital
maybe not the smartest move, but it’s from a gun control group, so they are unhappy anyway.
Go ahead on RP, tweek them libbys
That’s an enormous pie-hole on that critter!
How can we conservatives get in on that deal?
its you know ....Like.... a Non Profit... you know?...../s
And how many divisions does this “gun control” group command? They don’t have guns, so they are irrelevant..
How was the 0bamaite killer brought down?
Who built the gun that killed the bad guy?
there are hit and run accidents all the time, I guess its “Callous” for people to drive after someone is killed in a hit and run accident..oh yeah I forgot, only guns are bad, not cars
It ain’t for pie....
No one should be allowed to shop for a car after someone else steals one and runs over somebody’s gramma.
And this is news, why? This woman would "slam" any conservative for any reason because (a) she's a Lib zealot and (b) she wants to get her name in the paper. This is a template, color-by-numbers article that has no news value, other than the fact that the paper and reporter wanted an article attacking Perry.
Looks like the grill on a 50s Buick.
Nary a day passes without a frightening glimpse into the troubled mind of a liberal.
Good men with AR-15 rifles stopped the rampage by an insane man with a shotgun and a pistol.
Found another ping in the new articles.
“Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense”
Hey! Me too!
Everyone should have a gun and be ready to use it. Especially moms and dads for their kids.
Because the guns walked themselves into the facility?
No, what’s callous is hussein couldn’t be bothered, military bases are gun-free zones and the cops were told to stand down.
Beretta is the plant threatening to leave for TX since MD came up with yet more anti-gun nonsense this year.
Maybe she should remain in 'safe (?)' Maryland where there is no Mexican invasion of immigrants ,
drug cartels, drug gangs, or unlicensed drivers.
She is content to wait the 8-10 minutes for LEO to process her complaint, rather than assertively take care of business.
Someone suggested requiring all military personnel at E-5 or above to carry issued pistols and ammo on base at all times while on duty.
Seems to me the base C.O. could take care of that.
Might offend the desk sailors, but would also tend to reduce sexual harassment........LOL
Not me. He’s ineffectual as governor. Texas schools use books that changes the 2nd Amendment wording and they use them to teach kids. Heck, they are all distorted.
If he can’t or won’t stop that nonsense then what will he do with federal bureaucracies? My guess - nothing.
More status quo.
You’d have to be stoned to hit that.
I thought it was just me that saw that .....
Either she sings opera , or her husband is a dentist !
LOL...actually I was thinking 64 Olds Ninety Eight!
Right...so it’s Rick Perry’s fault. I get it!
For an Opininated Blowhard, you nailed this one pretty darn well.;)
Perry is doing exactly as he should be doing. Ignoring this Alinsky style attack.
You see what the game is? If Perry were to stay away, it would be used to incriminate the gun industry. Since he didn’t stay away they demonize him instead.
I was thinking Mack truck
Jenifer Pauliukonis is not even American. She’s from the People’s Republic of Maryland
Because a gun factory caused some goofy black guy to attack the navy?
This group is just a front for OFA. Why they get any play, is obvious. DISTRACT, DISTRACT, DISTRACT!
Was it as callous as Obama making a speech on political theory right after he had made the announcement about the killings?
Perry making his token nod to the Second Amendment.
Most likely another neo-fascist Soros group.
Soros Spends Nearly $7 Million to Push Gun Control
People should also be aware that Soros has hired an unknown number of PR firms to write propaganda and disinformation. These screeds are sent to sympathetic left wing news organizations like the NYT and the WSJ and appear as “news” articles.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense has a huge reservoir of funding, likely from Bloomberg and Soros, and almost certainly in the millions of dollars.
Soros alone, since 2000 has given at least $550 million through his Open Society organization.
This has nothing to do with “free speech”. This is buying public policy that opposes the US constitution.
What else would you expect some Skank who belongs to a Commie group called Maryland head of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
How utterly callous, insensitive and boorish for Jenifer Pauliukonis, Maryland head of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, to be a grandstanding attention whore so soon after the Navy Yard rampage.
Doesn’t Jenifer Pauliukonis have even a shred of decency? The victims haven’t yet been laid to rest, yet there she is front and center, pimping her political hot button in the press, as a way of saying, “Hey, everybody, look at me!”.
Unlike normal people who are horrified by the violence that can be inflicted by a madman, people like Jenifer Pauliukonis relish such occasions, becoming energized and enthusiastic whenever such a tragedy occurs, as they rush to make a big stink, just to get their name in the paper.
Pathetic and disgusting, even for a sociopath like you, Jenifer.
Dibs on the ivory.
