Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  Maryland’s anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s Jenifer Pauliukonis says Texas Governor Rick Perry’s recent visit to a Beretta USA firearms factory was “callous.”

According to Paulinkonis, the Wednesday outing demonstrated “inappropriate timing” on the heels of Monday’s Navy Yard shooting, and she could not believe Perry “would show so little sensitivity” toward the victims in DC.

DallasNews.com reports that Perry does not see it that way, because the meeting did not include journalists, so there was not a lot of hoopla surrounding it. Rather, it was a closed-door meeting with Beretta executives.

On top of this Perry, retorted;

“There [are] always anti-gun individuals. [But] the fact is, I’m a pro-Second Amendment guy. Texas is a pro-Second Amendment state. Beretta has been a great manufacturer in Maryland and they feel not only under-appreciated, they feel under attack.”

Yea, and who wanted these “Gun-Free zones” where all these mass shootings take place anyway? Hmmm???

And I call these “moms” VULTURES!
They lay and wait for some shooting tragedy then like a vulture, they swoop in and pick at the bodies with their hoplophobic agendas.
No… wait a sec… vultures wait until the bodies are cold!

Callous just like the people who drive their cars to work or have a glass of wine after a drunk driver kills innocent people.

Moms Demand Action and ALL other anti-gun groups need to be held accountable for every one of the mass shootings.

It’s THEIR fault the victims can’t shoot back, since they vote for public disarmament.

It’s not rocket science. Get rid of “gun free zones” and restrictions on law-abiding citizens, and mass shootings will stop.

Yeah, if the gun grabbers lips are moving, they are lying. Everything is an AR-15. They all should be put on the list of nuts not to own guns, because the see things that aren’t there and hear voices. And since when does a Gov. from TX have anything to do with DC? Two opposite sides of the country.

Its funny how they say the timing of his visit was insensitive, but it was OK for the far left media to start their anti gun politicing minutes after the shooting ended. This was evident when CNN reported the shooter used an AR15 shotgun. They have to slip “AR15” in to reports, regarless, to push the far left anti-gun agenda.

Thank you Rick Perry! You have nothing to be ashamed of. Groups like “moms demand attention” ARE the problem.
