Former Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has called for pregnant women to be allowed to carry arms into the delivery room.
“Texas is an open carry state. We take our guns everywhere, to the john, to the mall, to church and even in bars,” Perry said. “Pregnant women should have the right to bear arms too.”
Perry added you could never be too safe in today’s society.
“Even churches and movie theaters are not safe these days,” he said. “Pregnant women need to be able to protect themselves.”
Perry also called for doctors and nurses to be armed too.
“Sometimes hospital security guards can’t be everywhere,” he said. “Doctors and nurses can serve as another line of defense.”
