This not-so-recent-anymore economic turmoil has affected a lot of people in our country, some more than others. Yes, Iâm talking specifically about aspiring gun owners. I know itâs hard to believe, but some people in our great country canât even afford guns anymore. Can you imagine that? A life devoid of those things that make really loud noises. What, are we living in the Canadian suburbs?
Here are a few helpful tips to help those without guns, make people think that they have guns.
Shout âI have a gun!â
Creative shadow work.
Weâve all seen what a banana inside a jacket pocket can accomplish.*
*This of course is a reference to the popular 90âs criminal âBanana Gun Jones.â Banana Gun Jones terrorized stores and markets in the Los Angeles area using just a Members Only jacket and a banana. He successfully robbed over 100 establishments, accumulating over $200,000 in cash and jewelry. Banana Gun fled the United States before ever getting caught. He spent his remaining years in the banana rich jungles of Panama, eventually succumbing to the countryâs deadly machete epidemic.
Put a lot of stuff in your pockets.
Everyoneâs got stuff. Just shove that stuff into your pockets and walk around like you have lots of stuff in your pockets. Youâll look just like Schwarzenegger did in Commando, and everyone knows what happened to the people who kidnapped his daughter in that movie. They died. From guns.*
*Results may definitely vary
Buy a gun handle.
The more expensive parts of a gun are in the front, but all some people need to see is the handle. Stick the handle inside the waist of your pants and give people a peek. If that doesnât work, show them a handful of bullets. âIâm totally gonna load my gun later with these bullets that shoot,â is a good thing to say to keep them on their toes.
I hope these tips help you get that feeling of power back in your life. If not, just remember that somewhere out there thereâs a guy thatâs not you running a 5K for reasons meaningless to most.
