“You should be able to carry your weapon anywhere in this state.”

– Texas Governor Rick Perry, speaking at a Northeast Tarrant County Tea Party meeting Monday night, the 17th, adding that even teachers and school administrators should be allowed to carry guns in schools, which drew loud applause from the crowd.  He made the comment in response to a question about the Connecticut school shootings.  To his credit, Perry urged all Texas school districts to review their emergency response plans and emphasized that lawmakers should “consider mental health issues” to make schools safer.
