TX Gov. Perry: The Piling on by Political Left to Use Massacre of Children to Advance Political Agenda Disgusts Me


Barack Obama used children in his presentation today to push his pre-existing political agenda to crack down on gun owners.

Governor Rick Perry let the Democrats have it today after Barack Obama’s press conference on guns.
“It disgusts me, personally.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry released this statement today on President Obama’s executive actions on guns.

“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.”

God bless, Texas.

    Agree, and what happen there was diligence on the part of Lanza ENTIRE FAMILY. And now a nation is paying for their irresponsible actions. Who pays for the gang member problems in Chicago, Citizens do. Who pays for the arrogance of a Politician who believes he is Judge and Jury. Regulations, uses powers to take our freedoms away and we lie down and take it.

    As soon as possible we are moving to Texas but hopefully at least more Men and women with a spine like Perry will take matters into their own hands and start impeachment proceedings.

    Good for Perry. Need at least some GOP people to stand up against the dictator.

    If he truly cared about protecting children, then he wouldn’t support murdering them before they are even born!

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA said. . .”And so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them and shield them from harm. And give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they are capable of doing, not only to pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country. This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe”. . .http://foxnewsinsider.com/2013/01/16/transcript-read-president-obam…

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. . .you want to “shield them from harm”. . .stop supporting the murder of unborn babies!

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. . .you want to “give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they are capable of doing”. . .then stop supporting the murders of unborn babies which never lets them grow up to “do everything that they are capable of doing”!

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. . .if it is the country’s “first task” to keep our children safe. . .stop supporting the murder of America’s unborn babies!

    “America’s Culture Of Death: We Need Abortion Control, Not Gun Control”
    http://www.westernjournalism.com/americas-culture-of-death-we-need-…

    “America does not have a gun problem; we have an apathy problem. Our consciences have been seared, and protecting the innocent is no longer a priority. We have become desensitized to evil, the very evil that has led to life being devalued in the United States. If polls show that the majority of American citizens do not approve of taxpayer funding of abortion, why do we continually pay for this brutal act? If the average American doesn’t speak up, at least Christians should”. . .

    . . .”Ninety-six. Remember this number. A baby is aborted at a Planned Parenthood facility somewhere in America every 96 seconds. In that same amount of time, Planned Parenthood receives about $1,056 taxpayer dollars. That equals eleven dollars a second and allows them to abort 910 lives every day. How did it get to the point in America where we kill our own and call it a choice? It sure did not happen overnight, but it does occur – Every 96 seconds”. . .

    Please contact any/all fed/state/local reps and tell them to stand for the 2nd amendment! They work for you!

    Powerful – NY Senator: We haven’t saved any lives tonight except the political life of a Gov. who wants to be president

    Wow. This is from NY Senator Greg Ball who was in the New York Senate last night when they voted in sweeping gun-control. He gave a solemn speech pointing out that all the legislation did is make criminals out of law-abiding citizens. He said it doesn’t save lives – except the political life of a governor who wants to be president.

  • Patty

    Now it is evident that Obama doesn’t care about the unborn or the citizen who legally owns a gun.

    Illegals
    Criminals
    Sex Offenders
    Muslim religion

    They have more rights under obama.

  • Joanne

    Bravo for Perry.

    Obama should be going after the pharmaceutical companies, because they are the ones, along with doctors, pushing ‘legal’ drugs on the youth…..but hey, that won’t take guns away from Americans.

    Criminals do not give up guns, and they do not register guns. If a person wants an assault gun, they can find one, and Obama knows it. Obama wants to render good people defenceless – and that is the whole goal.

    Obama’s Hidden $236 Billion Tax Hike

    The Obama administration issued $236 billion worth of new regulations last year… The analysis from the American Action Forum, led by former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, found that the administration added $216 billion in rules and more than $20 billion in regulatory proposals in 2012. Complying with those rules will require an additional 87 million hours of paperwork, the report said. The group put the total price tag from regulations during Obama’s first term at more than $518 billion. …The Environmental Protection Agency racked up the most in regulatory costs last year, according to the report, issuing $172 billion worth of rules. Regulations from the healthcare reform law tacked an additional $20.1 billion in costs onto the economy.

  • CommieJuice

    You think all of this rolling out if by accident? 0bama was hoping for something like Sandy Hook to happen so he could roll out his commie agenda.

    Why do you think he signed into law the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) that unconstitutionally gives the 0bama the right to deem American citizens terrorist and detain them indefinitely without trail. This bill was lead by John McCain, yep, the old traitor himself who thinks pouring water on someone’s face is torture, but throwing Americans in prison without a trail is just fine.

    Where was the outrage to that?

    The NDAA gives 0bama the right to call you a terrorist and detain you for standing for your rights, namely the 2nd amendment. Now if you take up arms which is what the 2nd amendment gives you the right to do, the NDAA gives the government the unconstitutional right to throw you in the gulag.

    That’s called laying the foundation for a dictator. BUT, no big deal, right?

  • Highlander

    Oh shadow, grow up. Nobody is saying our first amendment rights have anything to do with gun violence. He said EVIL is to blame … and frankly, he’s right. It’s evil that makes people do the things they’re doing to corrupt our children, and it’s evil that drives people to oppress and prey on other people. However, evil simply cannot be legislated out of existence in a free society. I have no more interest in seeing our government step on the first amendment than I have in seeing them step on the second…

    What I want is for people to be held ACCOUNTABLE for their ACTIONS. Period. If you behave irresponsibly, whether it be with a firearm, or a keyboard, there should be consequences. Of course, people used to believe that they would be answering to God for their actions, but thanks to all the Godless jerks running around insulting and demeaning people of faith, that deterrent has been largely removed from millions of people’s lives. Now, we’re suffering the consequences of that. The fact is, human nature being what it is, people need SOME good reason to be responsible. In lieu of religion, and in light of the MISERABLE examples our leaders have been setting for us recently, personal responsibility has become a rare commodity, and if we don’t do something to correct that, things can only get worse.

    However, I don’t care HOW bad it gets, the answer is NOT to give God-like powers to our elected representatives. That sort of power will corrupt any normal human being, and there are countries all over the world with governments that are living proof of that.

    Patty, I’d take Bush back in a second too, and I think most conservatives would agree with us. No, he wasn’t perfect, but at least he loved this country. Obama is the worst thing that’s EVER happened to America, and at the end of eight miserable years, I think that is going to become apparent to all but the most ignorant of his supporters. The cell phone lady already has it figured out, but I’m guessing Shadow will probably hold out … he’s still blaming Bush for Pete’s sake …

  • Highlander

    Good point shadow … seven in the four years prior to Obama … less than one a year. Then, three in Obama’s first year. And now, look at what we have. Thanks for making my point …

  • Highlander

    Blame it on the economy, blame it on desperation, blame it on fear, blame it on rumors of more gun control … but it’s pretty clear that there was an uptick in these shootings starting in 2007, and in my opinion, Obama owns that. One thing is certain shadow … Boosh had nothing to do with it …

    “Obama owns that. One thing is certain shadow … Boosh had nothing to do with it …”

    If you think there is some conspiracy purposefully put in place by Obama to orchestrate mass slaughters in order to force gun freaks to be more accountable and responsible for their arsenals, then your caboose has really jumped the tracks. This is craziness thinking on your part. You are not seeing reality, your mind is being manipulated. Wake up to yourself.

  • Oh right, like it really was the idea of any of these kids to write to the President. More likely it was their parents that made them do it. And has anyone noticed that these four children just happen to represent the politcally correct racial mix of one white girl, one hispanic girl, one black boy, and one white boy. All staged by the most dishonest administration ever.

  • JoyO

    This President must be impeached for his actions today…and Congress should treat it as a culmination of multi-impeachable actions (illegal appoints, the EO re immigration, the Mandate requiring churches to cover abortions/birth control; etc.)

    Isn’t it truly amazing that the report of the investigation of the President’s involvement in the killing of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, has not been issued in FOUR months. Yet, 23 Executives Orders are issued the day after Biden concludes his study of the Sandy Hook killings. It is obvious the Benghazi report is shelved to protect the President whereas the White House had to have these Executive Orders on gun control ready and waiting for the “right time.” After all, the Progressives’ motto is “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

    Besides Obama using armed security at His daughter’s school. .

    Obama hides behind innocent children (like Al Quida and all good Jihadists do) whom he deceived. .didn’t these children know secret service with GUNS were all over and around the stage? With orders to PROTECT the PRESIDENT at ALL COSTS. .even if these little children became collateral damage. But heck. . .what does OBAMA know or care about collateral when he spends our country to poverty .

    How is it that these 23 executive decrees cost so much. .first I heard $500MM now $4.5 BILLION!!!

    And what about FAST & FURIOUS

    And part of the 23 Executive Edicts is to have Doctors spy on gun owners. . . turning neighbor against neighbor like the Stasi of the former East Germany!

    typical passive/aggressive. Build the rhetoric up then backoff when challenged. Keep backpedaling fool.

    If Obama “owns it”, meaning he is responsible for fixing the problem then he is taking steps to frikin OWN it. That means gun freaks are going to be accountable and responsible for their their personal arsennals. Period. Full stop.

    You’re all about those two concepts aren’t you? Then be the first one to put your money where your flapping gums are. Register your guns and be accountable for their whereabouts. Quit perpetuating drama ffs. Have you any clue how psycho some of the gun freaks sound?

    Otherwise your dog whistle comment about Obama owning the violence problem in this country just smacks of conspiratorial nuttiness festering in the limp brains of people who love the drama and their fetish for guns fed by the nra.

    Can’t completely agree with Highlander. However, something is a bit contrived. Sandy Hook occurred 5 weeks after the election, 11 days before Christmas, and the victims were all upper-middle class suburbanites.

    Westroads Mall in 2007.

    I think it’s YOU who needs to learn how to count …

    Secondly, just because Obama wasn’t President yet in 2007 doesn’t mean people weren’t reacting to the societal problems being caused by the Democrats’ failed policies … policies that Obama supported. Since Obama is a Democrat, and he supported those policies, that means he owns the results. Period.

    You jerks have no problem blaming Bush for the things that have happened in the four years AFTER his presidency, so as far as I’m concerned, Obama is responsible for his part in the events leading up to his election. Turnabout is fair play, so if you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen ….

    Now, as for YOU Lincolns’ Bitch … you just need to take a pill. Don’t accuse ME of using passive/aggressive tactics. You’re the one who’s hysterically hurling accusations and insults at legal gun owners. Nobody here has EVER said that gun owners aren’t responsible for safely storing and handling their weapons. Implying that we don’t care about firearm safety and security is ridiculous. However, we have no intention of bowing down to jerkoffs like you who think the government needs a list of who owns what, because we KNOW exactly where that would take us.

    You arrogant gun-hating fascists aren’t fooling anyone. You’re enemies of America, and we intend to defend ourselves against you. If you think you can insult or shame us into complying with your demands, you’re in for a big surprise. If you want to interpret that as chest thumping, tyranny, or treason, feel free, but we know who America’s enemies are, and we recognize projection when we see it.

    “There is nothing in the 2nd a that says that you are not to be held responsible nor accountable for your guns….”

    Yeah, well there’s nothing in the second amendment that gives you the right to decide what quantity or type of firearms we own either, yet you morons seem to think you have the right to determine that for us anyway …

    The fact is, we are awash in laws that clearly define our responsibilities to our fellow citizens, and nowhere in those laws does it say that WE are responsible for the CRIMINAL actions of others. Implying that we are is ridiculous. You are so blinded by your hatred for guns and gun owners that you would sooner place blame on the VICTIM of a gun theft than place blame on the criminal responsible for any resulting violence. I’m sorry, but that is just plain ridiculous.

    Yes, gun owners should be as responsible and conscientious as possible when it comes to the storage and use of their firearms, but that’s where it should end.

    Widow, it’s absolutely hilarious to watch a leftist troll like you attempting to use the very amendment you despise in support of your argument against it. I wonder if you hypocrites ever realize just how stupid you sound when you do that?
