Texas Governor Perry goes jogging with a gun and takes out a Coyote…..

My first question is why does the Governor have to carry a gun?

My second question is where is his protective detail?

My third is why is he jogging where he could get attacked by wild animals?

Ok…..enough…..

The picture of him with the gun is pricless…even in Texas…..

"Don't attack my dog or you might get shot ... if you're a coyote," Texas Governor Rick Perry told reporters after taking down a coyote that attacked his Labrador.

[ Don’t attack my dog or you might get shot … if you’re a coyote,” Texas Governor Rick Perry told reporters after taking down a coyote that attacked his Labrador.]
Pistol-packing Republican Rick Perry told The Associated Press on Tuesday he needed just one shot from the laser-sighted pistol he sometimes carries while jogging to take down a coyote that menaced his puppy during a February run near Austin.

Perry said he carries a .380 Ruger — loaded with hollow-point bullets — when jogging on trails because he is afraid of snakes. He’d also seen coyotes in the undeveloped area.

“I knew there were a lot of predators out there. You’ll hear a pack of coyotes. People are losing small cats and dogs all the time out there in that community,” Perry said.

“They’re very wily creatures,” Perry said of coyotes.

When one came out of the brush toward his daughter’s Labrador retriever, Perry charged.

“Don’t attack my dog or you might get shot … if you’re a coyote,” he said Tuesday.

A concealed handgun permit holder, he carries the pistol in a belt.  Perry said the laser-pointer helped make a quick, clean kill.

  1. James B, Perry does have security detail, mostly from the Texas Rangers and some from the Secret Service (I doubt they protect governors), but you don’t see them because you also have police officers guarding the stage just in case someone tries to kill him.

    I remember then-Gov. George W. Bush had heavy security during his 5 years in the Texas Governor’s Mansion, due to being the son of a former US President, etc.,

  2. The Secret Service is NOT assigned to Perry….

    He has Texas State Police as did Bush II till he assumed Secret Service Protection….

    Anyways …WTF weren’t they protecting Perry…since he felt he needed a gun?

  3. James B, I guess future Texas governors’s security detail increased once Connally was wounded with JFK in Dallas on 11-22-63.

    If I was the head of the Texas Rangers, I would NOT allow Perry to ride in open convertibles either.

    ————-

    why even ask this question

    having a gun is a right bestowed upon us ..

    Shame RANGER shot a coyote

    The DEADLIEST weapon MOST people can own still remains an AUTOMOBILE and not a gun

  8. The people of the State of Texas pay for a detail of state police to provide protection to its Governor….

    The unit may have up to a hundred troopers in it….

    Typically they would provide protection for the Governor, his spouse, his underaged children and protect his home, office and him anywhere he travels on the planet….

    WTF would he be carrying a gun?
