Courtesy Citybizlist–Texas Gov. Rick Perry spent Wednesday visiting gun manufacturer Beretta USA in Accokeek and meeting with Maryland business owners in Bethesda as he continued his quest to lure businesses to Texas.

Perry defended his decision to meet with Beretta two days after the shooting at Navy Yard that left 13 people, including the shooter, dead. The governor’s visit drew the ire of the Maryland chapter of Moms Demand Action, a group formed in the wake of last year’s Sandy Hook shootings, who said in a statement the meeting was “inappropriate” and should have been postponed.
