    Perry will be great when he gets to DC, he will drain the swamp and the biggest swamp monsters left in 2012, starting with Reid Pelosi, and Frank

    Keep an eye on Perry! Check this out.

    From The National Association of Gun Rights



    Remember when I asked the question “where’s Tim Pawlenty?”

    Well, now I’m wondering where Rick Perry is…

    I sent Governor Perry the official National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Candidate Survey via certified mail.



    Guess what?

    His campaign has refused to even pick it up from the Post Office!



    Now, I know what you’re probably thinking.

    “He’s pro-gun!”

    “He even carries!”

    Let me tell you, I’ve been in this game for a long time.

    What I’ve come to learn is that unless you get a politician to -- at the very least -- sign a pledge stating his or her beliefs, you can never be sure of where a politician's allegiance truly lies.

    We know the institutional gun lobby just uses their surveys as window dressing, but we believe our survey questions are extremely important.

    Without having a candidate's signature on a survey that lays out -- in detail -- what he will and will not support, it's impossible to call that candidate "pro-gun."

    If the only criteria for being pro-gun was whether or not a certain politician owned their own firearm or had a concealed carry permit, it would mean people like Barbara Boxer (D-CA) are pro-gun. And we both know that’s just not true.

    The simple fact is, when political figures don’t answer questions, it usually means one thing...

    ...they’re hiding something.

    I need you to help me find out what Rick Perry is hiding.

    Give his campaign manager a call at 603-620-3692 and demand that Rick Perry return the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Candidate Survey.

    One of two things will happen.

    Either Governor Perry won’t answer and show the gun rights community that he’s too good for them...

    ...or he will answer and we will have a signed statement from him vowing to protect your Second Amendment rights on very specific issues.

    Again, please call Governor Perry’s campaign at 603-620-3692 and demand that he return the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Candidate Survey.

    Perry MUST hear from gun owners like you. Gun owners must hold politicians accountable.

    You and I need to make sure that happens.


    For Freedom,


    Dudley Brown
    Executive Director

    P.S. If a guy is going to run for President of the United States, he needs to make a commitment on important issues like your Second Amendment rights.

    I have been hearing snippets all around about Rick Perry not being the Conservative Republican he protrays to be.

    Something I heard yesterday was a little distrubing that the State of Texas' budget is twice as big now as it was when Bush left the governship.

    Now I know it has been over ten years, but that kind of statement just froze my thinking for a moment.

    Others are still weary about his being a former Democrat and campaign manager to Al Gore(????????) Is that true?

    You also need to remember, R.Reagan used to be a democrat. But that was back when they "stood" for something!!

    Now they are just socialist/communist.

    Perry worked for AL Gores presidential campaign, that is true.
    I personally have sent emails requesting information on Perrys 2nd Amendment stance, no responses received.
    I hope the NRA gets involved to get an answer.

    I see ya'll aren't from Texas, questioning whether or not he is pro gun. Just ask a Texan and he will tell ya in a New York minute that he has done more for gun rights than any governor that we ever had.

    Perry is doing what it takes to be re-elected in a gun friendly state like Texas.
    If he is truly pro-gun, he needs to state such.
    Being a buddy to Gore makes me sceptical though.

    Well,,,,avery53,,,,he has a concealed carry permit,,,,has used his sidearm,,,,why would you think he is "not" pro 2nd Amendment,,,,

    While Perry is not as strong on immigration as I would be,,,,he is NOT pro amnesty,,,,you seem to have some reasons for your questions,,,,mind sharing????

    Just read that he is billing the federal gov for 350 million for costs associated with housing illegal aliens in Texas jails.

    He shot a coyote that attacked his dog while he was jogging with his pistol, I guess that isn't enough

    Hell yes he's pro gun, he's from Texas

    He isn't perfect, but he's the best shot we have at saving this great country, and as far as not answering Dudley Brown right away, I imagine he's real busy trying to get his campaign up and running

    I too believe he a good candidate, but 2nd amendment issues are high on my agenda. I just wish he would answer the question.
    bigdog, Barbera Boxer has a CCW, Chucky Schumer also has one, that don't make them pro-gun.
    Soon as Perry steps forward stating he is for gun rights, I'll send him a check.
    Also, the other candidates had time to answer the questionaire, and they are pretty busy.

    JMHO of course. lol

    Harry Reid had the NRA approval.

    Single issue voters are what got the Muslim in Chief elected.

    Be careful here.

    And if he is anti-gun, you would still pick him over other Republican candidates?
    Now against Bummer, hell yes, even a stray dog would be better. Just sayin'.

    Maybe Governor is smart enough not to get trapped into a single box by the media in this stage of the race. Even when I lived in Texas, I didn't agree with everything he did, but micky Mantle only hit 500 and he was the greatest. As far as budget in Texas: 1)Texas has been absorbing huge numbers of people (citizens) coming from other states as Texas still actually has some jobs. 2) The BUDGET IS BALANCED!
    Is he perfect, no, but unless you want an arrogant kenyan or a cocky soccer mom next election, we better back someone who is at least basically sound. For family reasons, I relocated to Indiana at Christmas time. As decent as Indiana is, I miss living in Texas!
