The Difference

Heard this from a friend today, "The difference between Texas and Paris is guns."

That is ONE difference. Another is the smell. Then there is the getting nickle and dimed every time you want to use the road. Then there is everything being closed in the evenings and weekends when you want to use them.

But make no mistake about it. We got lucky in Texas. Just blind luck. The right guy was at the right place to make an interception after the guy next to him took a hit he never saw coming. The bad guys always get the first shot and they don't always screw up and get unlucky. There are plenty of cases where guns were present and didn't help because they were not in the right place, not in the right hands and not lucky enough. We delude ourselves by making the claim that guns alone will same us every time. All they do is increase our odds.
