Im glad she wasnt hurt.
I think the point of this, is the fact that we have a presidential candidate that is shooting a handgun at the range. Personally, I think its great, now lets see how his fiscal beliefs are...
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......

I agree 100%. Political labels are a poor replacement for independent study and thought.

Yep - I'm one of them. In each and every election, I do not vote for a person based on their affiliation with a group such as republican or democrat. I watch all of the debates and research each candidate's beliefs. Usually a few months before the election I'll start creating a list of things I do and don't like about each candidate and then rank them in order of importance. In the last election I voted for John McCain, but only by a slight margin did I chose him over Obama. However, had Hilary Clinton actually been the democratic candidate, I would have voted for her. Yes, I ranked Obama and Clinton very low scores on 2nd-amendment rights. But there are other things that are important to me besides that.

Truth be told, I hate the way our election system works. I wish we could do away with the whole concept of political parties and just vote for people we like. Maybe then there'd be more than 2 candidates (realistically) to pick from.
Better yet - I wish all decisions could be made by the public as a whole, a true democracy. Maybe one day that will happen with the internet. Where we can all log in and vote on specific issues. But before we could vote we would have to agree to read a summary of both sides of the issue.

AMEN! How cool would it be to have a POTUS that carries? The Bush's hunted, especially George H.(even though he renounced his NRA membership) and Reagan was pro-gun...but you have to go all the way back to IKE to find one as Pro-gun as Perry. I like it

I understand where you are coming from but you like most people don't understand how legislative bodies work, your guy could be the most decent upstanding guy that ever lived but if he's elected to office and his party is not in control of the body he's been elected to he will be as useful as a fly on the wall. This is why I laugh out loud when the main stream media gives any credibility to the dems in the house of representatives, they really have zero input at this point, in the senate the rules are a bit different but up until 2010 the dems in the senate ran the show and a republican there could only piss and moan about things because they had little to no impact on any legislation.

I couldn't hear it, so I don't know if he shoots that way.
Maybe he's a six shooter guy.
Are you sure he's from Texas?
