Wouldn't NOT carrying a gun make you less of a pussy?
Perry said he will carry his .380 Ruger — loaded with hollow-point bullets — when jogging on trails because he is afraid of snakes.
I agree. Coyotes are completely harmless, dog or no dog. If the guv makes any move toward them, they flee. And it's not practical to try to shoot a snake.
This governor is a huge pussy.
I run in areas with bear, coyote, and snakes all the time, and have never considered carrying any sort of weapon nor would I ever, ever need one.
You know what the most dangerous animal is? A dog. Dogs aren't afraid of humans the way wild animals are, so they're more willing to attack. Most dogs are poorly trained and have inattentive owners who don't believe their dog would ever harm someone. The problem is that their dog isn't used to seeing someone running 6 or 7 minute pace and so it gets excited and wants to play or attack. Not fun.
If I could shoot every dog that chased me, maybe then I would think about carrying a gun. However, I'm not a huge pussy like texas guv, so I can just turn, face the dog, yell, and usually that confrontation is over.
