Today’s safety tip: Never bet the other guy he doesn’t have a gun…

…because you might be betting more than you can afford to lose.

You know Anti-Gun Argument #.357? It’s the one that goes, ‘it’s pointless to carry a gun, because the other guy will always have the drop on you.’ In some cases that might well be true. But ‘always’ is a big word.

Here’s a funny story…

They say the guest was approached by a man asking for cigarettes.

The hotel guest said he didn’t have any cigarettes.

The man began to walk away, turned around and said “betcha’ ain’t got one of these,” pointing a gun at the victim.

The man did however have “one of these” and fired at the man trying to rob him, striking him in the chest.

    A bad bet for sure. It’s not the odds, It’s the stakes.

    And the punchline was ‘If you could only have seen the look on his face . . . ” :^)

To the stake with the heretic!
