Gov. Rick Perry sat back in shock when I told him President Obama told Mexicans that an upside of his efforts to infringe the Second Amendment would be to make them safer. The Texas Republican, a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), pushed back his chair and thought before speaking.
â€œThe idea that a United States president would go to Mexico and make that statement is incredulous,â€ the 2012 president candidate told me in an interview after his rousing speech at the NRA annual meeting in Houston Friday. â€œHis goal â€” well before he became president of the United States â€” was to try to disarm the American public. He just disregards the Constitution.â€
In Mexico City Friday, Mr. Obama said that, â€œMost of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.â€ He mentioned that the Constitution protects the right to bear arms (he didnâ€™t say â€œkeep armsâ€), then continued that, â€œI will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States.â€
The president never mentioned the debacle on his watch of Fast and Furious, yet said, â€œWeâ€™ll keep increasing the pressure on gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico. Weâ€™ll keep putting these criminals where they belong â€” behind bars.â€
