• Perry responds to criticism of gun tour (Baltimore Sun): "Speaking outside a steakhouse in Bethesda on Wednesday where he met with Maryland business owners, Texas Gov. Rick Perry dismissed criticism of his visit to a gun manufacturer days after a mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. 'There's always anti-gun individuals at any time. The fact is that I'm a pro-2nd Amendment guy, Texas is a pro-2nd Amendment state and Beretta has been a great manufacturer in Maryland,' Perry said. 'They feel not only under appreciated, they feel under attack.'"
