Demons. The last refuge of a scoundrel.
In a statement responding to President Barack Obama’s executive actions to reduce gun violence, [Texas Governor Rick] Perry says he’s “disgusted” by what he calls the “political left” using the Connecticut school massacre to push for greater restrictions on guns.
The governor says, “The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.”
I have no response since it’s hard to know where to begin to address such a superstitious and closed-minded worldview.
