Texas Governor Perry's indictment to curb his gun-toting ways

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/23/2014 - 02:38

Texas Governor Perry speaks during appearance at business leaders luncheon in PortsmouthBy Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A felony indictment for abuse of power will hit Texas Governor Rick Perry, an avowed gun enthusiast, where it hurts - by curtailing some of his rights to bear firearms. Under state law, Perry, a staunch supporter of gun rights who said he shot a coyote to death with a pistol while jogging in Austin in 2010, is no longer allowed a license to carry a concealed handgun because of the indictment. The longest-serving governor in the state's history, Perry became the target of an ethics investigation last year after he vetoed $7.5 million in funding for the state public integrity unit run from the Travis County district attorney's office. Edwin Walker, a gun rights attorney in Houston, said if someone is indicted for a felony the state will suspend his or her concealed handgun license during the indictment period.
