The audience at a rally for Texas Senator Ted Cruz thought it was quite funny when conservative speaker Bill Whittle joked about how they should shoot at drivers from California.

Whittle told the crowd at Saturday’s “Freedom Rally,” sponsored by Texans for Freedom and Liberty, that the issue he wanted to discuss should involve the state Highway Patrol, the National Guard and private citizens.

“You will see a lot of cars coming west heading east on Interstate 10, and they’re going to have California license plates on them,” Whittle said, as the crowd begins to laugh. “Now, if you see these cars pull into rest areas or hotels or restaurants, that’s fine; wave goodbye, make sure they go out on the Louisiana end.”

“But if you see them pull off into residential areas, you need to open fire on these vehicles immediately,” Whittle said, as the crowd laughs appreciatively and applauds loudly. “Immediately. Not with 9mm or AR rounds; you need to put mortars on those things, you cannot take any chances.”

After the crowd quiets down, Whittle reminds them that he is from Los Angeles and says that Californians are trying desperately to move to Texas to enjoy its “awesome job opportunities, the incredible economy and the conservative government.”
