    the more people we can introduce to shooting the better things will be, perry took what was probably a lib leaning person whose only knowledge of firearms is the crap spouted by the media and taught here that guns aren't really so bad.
    Good for the Gov.
    the shame is that stories like this would never be found on the libertard mass media outlets

    I am personally not a fan of Perry.....Although his 2nd Amendment stance is decent. I still believe he isnt the best choice for the GOP in 2012......

    I'm glad she didn't lose any skin on her left thumb.

    He should be more mindful of her left thumb. I am surprised it is still attached.

    And, oh, BTW, the microphone needed ear protection.

    Consider the alternative. IMO Perry has his downfalls but I think he can do better than the other candidates.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions though.

    The author's bio.
    I'm a conservative activist. I blog at The Houston Chronicle, RightWingNews, Newsbusters, and my own site.

    I doubt she was a liberal leaning anything. Guys we need to get past the mud slinging because of labels. You would be suprised how many "conservatives" and "liberals" are only seperated by a small margin on many issues. You would also be amazed how many people use the labels without having any real idea what they mean.

    you're right, I did not research the lady's background, nonetheless introducing a newbie to guns by such a prominent person can be nothing but good.

    Very few will have a "perfect candidate." There's always going to be some things in a candidate which rubs people wrong, or things they really don't like.

    The thing that really needs to happen is to really rally around whoever ends up being the GOP party nominee and make sure the friggon media doesn't pick our candidate for us. That's exactly how we ended up with McCain last time. Through media manipulation.

    It is nice to see him out there pushing the 2A and being a good ambassador for gun ownership and helping out the common folk.

    Roger that! I saw her thumb behind the slide. That can really hurt. He corrected it once but she got lucky when she fired it and didn't end up with blood everyplace.

    I noticed the placement of her left thumb right away, and wondered if he was going to correct her! He did once, but she went right back to putting it over her other hand. I was pretty sure she was going to get "bit", but luckily she didn't.

    Perry seems like a pretty down to earth guy, and a candidate I'd vote for. I don't know all of his political views, but I will learn them before the election, and I already like his 2A views!!
