In response to President Barack Obama’s unveiling of new gun legislation, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has recommended prayer instead of a change in gun laws to combat violence in the U.S.
“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds,” Perry said in a statement issued shortly after President Obama concluded his Wednesday press conference regarding gun legislation, according to the Houston Chronicle.
“As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children,” the governor and former GOP presidential candidate added.
