Perry and Malzberg kicked off the discussion of the shooting by attacking President Obama for mentioning the failure to pass gun reform. Perry, a GOP presidential candidate, said that the president is trying to “take the guns out of the hands of everyone in this country.”I know Perry has since come back around and said he meant "incident" not "accident"--but people can do some wild things on prescription drugs. I heard of one damned fool who tried to run for president for a while all goofed up on back pills. I know he's a proponent of loosey-goosey gun laws, too, but he can't possibly believe "gun control" equals "taking away all the guns, melting them down, and turning them into a ginormous peace sign statue", right? And I wonder why he wasn't too interested in talking about race? I mean, I don't actually wonder, but...
“This is the MO of this administration, any time there is an accident like this — the president is clear, he doesn’t like for Americans to have guns and so he uses every opportunity, this being another one, to basically go parrot that message,” Perry said.
Instead of talking about guns, Perry said, we should be talking about prescription drugs: “Also, I think there is a real issue to be talked about. It seems to me, again without having all the details about this, that these individuals have been medicated and there may be a real issue in this country from the standpoint of these drugs and how they’re used.”
