Rick Perry Gave Greg Abbott a Gun For His Birthday, Because of Course He Did

Yesterday was Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott's 55th birthday, and it brought with it the question of what to give a man who has selflessly devoted his life to suing the federal government. A PACER gift card to cover all those pesky filing costs? A guaranteed slot in the Republic of Texas' cabinet? An Obama pinata to wail on, then burn in effigy?

Rick Perry had a better idea.

That's right: a .380 Ruger LCP -- the same model Perry used to off that coyote. Abbott didn't specify how he plans to use a gun, but this is Texas. There are plenty of coyotes about.
