Got this via B&S. You got to love to see the left getting all bent out of shape with Rick Perry carrying a gun if elected president.
If elected president, Rick Perry could still jog with his gun | The Ticket - Yahoo! News:
"We Texans like our guns," Perry writes in his book, Fed Up!. "We don't like meddlesome statists who want to infringe on our right to keep and bear them."
Like it or not, the president would be breaking local law by carrying his gun in the city, but there are several ways he could get around it if he wanted to.
First, the president could easily sign an executive order that makes it legal for him to carry a weapon. Executive Orders are considered as good as law, so there would be little that could stop him, said Adam Winkler, UCLA law professor and author of the new book Gunfight: The Battle over the Right to Bear Arms in America.
Don't you just love executive orders!
