Gov. Rick Perry: Quit Using Massacre of Little Children to Push Gun Control

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has released a statement in response to suggestions made by Vice President Joe Biden's gun violence task force and President Obama's 23 executive orders aimed at broadening gun control.

According to Perry, Biden's "recommendations have nothing to do with what happened" at Sandy Hook Elementary. Moreover, Obama's "executive actions" betray "a pre-existing political agenda" that is markedly anti-gun.

Wrote Perry:

The piling on the 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 and cannot nor will not be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.
