Erick Erickson is holding his RedState Gathering here in Austin this weekend with a GOP all-star lineup of speakers to include:
- Gov. Rick Perry
- Hon. Chuck DeVore
- Congressman Tom Graves (GA)
- Hon. Nikki Haley (SC)
And, just like the evening before the Rick Perry Blogger’s Gathering back in January of this year, a small group of us have been invited to go shooting with Gov. Perry again. So, sometime this afternoon, we’ll get on a bus and head out to a private ranch at an undisclosed location and split up into teams for a little friendly sporting clays shooting competition with Gov. Perry.
Is it any wonder that Gov. Rick Perry was just endorsed by the NRA and the Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA)? It’s because Gov. Perry doesn’t just pay lip service to the second amendment — he’s a fervent practitioner and defender of our right to own and bare guns.
Unlike his opponent in November, Liberal trial lawyer Bill White. The guy doesn’t own have a concealed handgun license, doesn’t hunt (or at least not legally, since he doesn’t have a hunting license), supports anti-gun groups, and supports gun control measures that strip law-abiding Americans of their right to own and posses guns.
Anyhow — I’m not sure of who else is attending — I know that Kathleen McKinnley (Rightwing Sparkle) and Erick Erickson are attending, but not sure who else beyond that. I’ll have some pictures and a recap up later this evening when I get home.
Or check my Twitter feed between 5-6 this evening, and I’ll likely post a few real-time twitpic updates.
