YES … ON SECOND AMENDMENT ISSUES
|| By FITSNEWS || Rick Perry “coulda been a contender.” Well, four years ago.
The former Texas governor rocketed to the front of the presidential pack in the run-up to the 2012 “Republican” primary, but wound up flaming out spectacularly.
How spectacularly? Well, by the time the “First in the South” primary rolled around, Perry had already dropped out of the race – choosing to endorse establishment “Republican” Newt Gingrich.
Perry’s 2016 bid has yet to gain any traction. In fact he’s become so desperate for attention he’s throwing stones at the surging candidacy of Donald Trump in the hopes someone will pay him some mind.
But blind hogs do occasionally find acorns, as the expression goes, and Perry – who gets it right every so often – is correct in arguing against so-called “gun-free zones” in America.
According to Perry, such zones are “a bad idea,” especially “if we believe in the Second Amendment, and we believe in people’s right to protect themselves and defend themselves, and their families.”
“I think that you allow the citizens of this country, who have appropriately trained, appropriately backgrounded, know how to handle and use firearms, to carry them,” Perry said during a weekend appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.
Well yeah … because that’s their constitutional right.
Also, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: More guns = Less crime. Like it or not, that’s the reality … especially in a world in which criminals don’t obey all those new anti-gun laws government keeps passing.
Anyway, props to Perry for getting something right … for a change.
Funny stuff Mr. Perry. You, the guy that wanted to secede his state from the union, now wants to be president OF the very union he wanted to secede from. You sir, are a joke of the biggest kind.
As President, Rick Perry will make the United States of America secede from the United States of America.
Only after he gets rid of three agencies he can’t remember right now.
The *other* thing that Rick Perry said that TBG liked.
He asked Ron Paul for the answer!
and ole Ron held up FIVE fingers….lol
The “more guns equals less crime” argument reminds me of an old and reliable piece of advice for the average gun owner: Make sure to file down any rough edges on the barrel, as it will ease extraction after a perp has stuck it up your ass.
If someone wants to tell people not to bring guns onto their property, they should have that right, whether it is a mall, a church, or a movie theater. If you don’t like it, build your own mall, church, or theater and set up your own rules.
Republicans love refusing service to gays and minorities, but boy do they get pissed when someone refuses them service.
I agree with you that most Republicans are hypocrites, and you are right on the mark in terms of property rights.
People who own establishments should be able to allow/disallow who they want for any reason, even if it’s a stupid one.
So all that being said, can you share with us where you fall in the political spectrum?
“If you don’t like it, build your own mall, church, or theater..”
People I know that legally carry guns have absolutely no problem staying away from establishments that ban weapons. We take our business elsewhere, and there seems to be no lack of establishments willing to accommodate us. No need to build more places to accommodate us, there are plenty out there.
That would be “President Perry” to you chump.
Shouldn’t the fact that Perry is an idiot and wrong about EVERYTHING kind of clue you in about whether he is correct with these statements?
“I think that you allow the citizens of this country, who have appropriately trained, appropriately backgrounded, know how to handle and use firearms, to carry them,”
Amen. Citizens like the guy who shot up the movie theater in Louisiana
Uhh, no dumbass! He was denied a CWP by a local Sheriff because of prior erratic or criminal behaviors.
