  13. It’s been posted before, but how can you do a Cali v. RoT comparision without this. (It originally came out a few years ago after Gov. Perry ended a coyote with his Ruger LCP during a jog. I’ve added a couple of embellishments.)

    CALIFORNIA: The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.

    1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi” and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.

    2. He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

    3. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 for testing it for diseases.

    4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

    5. The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.

    6. The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds to implement a “coyote awareness” program for residents of the area.

    7. The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

    8. The Governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack somehow and for letting the Governor attempt to intervene.

    9. Security agent’s union demands arbitration; union-affiliated arbitration panel grants agent lifetime disability and immediate full pension. Security agent then gets another state job.

    10. Additional cost to State of California: $75,000 to hire and train a new security agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.

    11. PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files suit against the State. Legislative committee immediately convened to discuss terms of surrender.

    TEXAS: The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and advances rapidly toward the Governor and his dog.

    1. The Governor shoots the coyote with his legally-carried Ruger LCP. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .380 hollow point round. The taxpayers pay nothing.

    2. Governor and dog continue jogging. Buzzards eat the dead coyote.

    And people wonder why the California economy sucks while the Texas economy booms . . . .

  14. TX Commonsense Gun Control: At the range: Getting off the X, presenting concealed weapon and burst firing 5 of 5 rounds into the target while moving off line…..

  15. State Assemblyman ….. Gun Runner w/ Mob Connections

OH! Soon to have “silencer”. (Kommifornia = “assassin”)
    Kommifornia = Arsenal. Warmonger. Psycho gun-nut.
    Texas = ammo and gun poor.
    BTW. What I own.

  19. If California actually tried to mess with Texas

  21. One of the reasons why we “keep” firearms ……………………………….. Where we “keep” ’em

  22. “C A L I F O R N I A – Nearly fully disarmed for the next Civil War” [c’mon you can do it]

    • It’s going to be fun for that DypShyt Kevin DeLeon to get the nearly 3,000,000 firearms sold in Kommieforina since 2008 out of the hands of citizens. We’re not even talking about all the AR’s that have been built up.

  23. Road Sign: CA =Direction or info TX =Metal Target
    Budweiser can: CA=recycling TX=Red wing dove (target)
    Fruit: CA=food/politician TX=exploding target
    MDA: CA=anti-gun hate group TX=get a baby sitter

  24. This reminds me of an old military joke….

    When told to secure a building, the Navy will turn off the coffee pot, lights and lock the door on the way out.

    The Army will surround it with troops, and armor if available, and await further orders.

    The Marines will send in a reinforced squad, kick in the doors, clear it room by room, place C4, exfil and demo it.

    The Air Force will use emergency procurement authorization for a 180 day lease with an option to extend for a year.

  25. Texas would destroy those silly little sheep in COMMIEFORNIA. The only mess that COMMIEFORNIA would have to deal with, is the mess in their panties after Texas kicks their dumb asses back to the stone age.

    Gun Violence Prevention Order ————Waco
