Perry: "You Should Be Able To Carry Your Handgun Anywhere" In Texas
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) expressed support for allowing teachers to be armed in the classroom after they go through training.
"With our concealed handgun license, if you go through the process and you have been duly backgrounded and trained and you are a concealed handgun licensed-carrying individual, you should be able to carry your handgun anywhere in this state," Perry said at a Tea Party event.
"One of the things I hope we donâ€™t see from our federal government is this knee-jerk reaction from Washington D.C.,when there is an event that occurs that they come in and think they know the answer," Perry later said.
