Esscuse me, but (and I believe Melissa-in-Texas will back me up) but I believe Gov. Perry vocally supported Second Amendment rights for American citizens before the horrific school shooting in Connecticut.
Perhaps you should have listened to him then instead of castigating him now.
And just what is it about Damnyankee politicians (Mikey Bloomberg e.g.) that make them think anyone outside their district gives a rat’s ass about their opinon?
Yes, Perry (who happens to be my Governor) has always supported the 2nd Amendment. So why is he particularly vocal about it now? Because NOW is when it’s under attack from the Left, who have neither the decency nor taste to let the dust settle before trying to use innocent deaths for their own political advantage.
JHC it’s not like every teacher in the school buildings will be walking around armed with rifles and ammo belts. GD stupid asses. Blood on their hands???????

Hmmm…Himes rejected Perry’s remarks yesterday, insisting that “there is absolutely no justification for weapons that were made for the explicit purpose of killing lots of people quickly to be in the hands of civilians.”
Well, I know a lot of people would be very happy to have the M4s and subguns taken out of the hands of the police(especially the SWAT teams), so-
oh, wait, he doesn’t think cops are that lesser of the species known as ‘civilians’, so it’s OK for them to have weapons for the explicit purpose of killing lots of people quickly; after all, that’s what cops are supposed to do, right?
Silly Firehand, cops are government, they’re legally empowered to kill lots of people quickly.
Just look for teh union label.

I learned several things:
Rep. Jim Himes D-Conn. has no testosterone.
[according to him]
Just stating an idea puts blood on an individual’s hands.
[see also: eugenics]
Ya can’t argue with a person who [likely unconsciously] believes that anyone who has a gun his his hand will twist off and go on a murder spree. Which is what is implied in all these statist’s rants.
Funny how they don’t see what they’re saying about themselves…
[though I would be extra careful about allowing folks with such a preconception to have a gun...]

here, again, the best way to tell what the tolerant, diverse, left is up to , is to have a look at whatever they are accusing conservatives of.
I would also take this opportunity to remind our gentle readers how much the left takes after their mentor, the great accuser, the snake himself, the dragon who prowls the earth like a hungry lion, Satan.
The evidence has never been more clear.
Also be reminded of those who think the DalaiBama is the great messiah.
It all adds up to and goes right along with Biblical prophesy.

I tried nine ways from Sunday to hear what this damn mouse from Connecticut was sayin’ about Perry, to no avail…. .
I could not hear more than a whisper.
BRING it, you Yankee whiner!
Come to Texas (the armed residents AND parents) where the balls, are you nutless wonder!
*Don’t make me go redneck on your ass!
Someone got my dander up!,

Melissa, that’s exactly the point; it doesn’t need to be every adult in the building, and they don’t need to be totin’ a Maw-Deuce. Just every CCW’er that wants to. And carrying what they feel comfortable with, be it a P3AT or a Desert Eagle. The idea is RETURN FIRE and keeping the Evildoers guessing who has it.
Yannow, like what makes CCW work in the non-Gun-Free Zones.
