Gov. Rick Perry expressed outrage at the president's plan

Following a White House ceremony on Wednesday where President Obama unveiled plans to pass universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, Gov. Rick Perry expressed outrage at the president's plan to curb gun violence, saying he's "disgusted" by the "political left" using the Connecticut school massacre to push for greater restrictions on guns and that the Second Amendment trumps Barack Obama or any other president. Perry's comments came after first-term Rep. Steve Toth introduced a bill in the Texas House seeking to ban in the state any federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
