And please, never own a gun. It’s exactly the kind of people who don’t know how to take care of themselves without a weapon who think that owning a firearm will somehow make it all better — and then end up shooting their way out of a situation that simply required some common sense.
QOTD found here.
I was reminded of Robb's post about driving to work the other day when I read the above quote. Of course instead of whipping out his gat and gunning down the offender, he thought discretion was in order and simply walked away. A gun doesn't make it all better, but better to be armed and able to respond with equal or superior force than to cower when someone who lacked restraint visits violence upon you.
