Today’s funny is courtesy of a friend of mine on Facebook:
A friend went to the Brush Country Women’s meeting Tuesday. The topic was the Texas Conceal Carry Law. One of the speakers related the following story:
On the way to the previous monthly meeting an elderly lady was stopped by a highway patrolman. He asked for her driver’s license and insurance. The lady took out the required information and handed it to the patrolman.
In with the cards he was surprised to see she had a conceal carry permit. He looked at her and asked if she had a weapon in her possession at this time. She responded that she indeed had a .45 Colt automatic in her glove box. Something, body language or the way she said it, made him want to ask if she had any other firearms. She then admitted to also having a 9mm Glock in her center console.
Now he had to ask one more time if that was all, and she responded once again she did have just one more, a S&W .38 Special revolver in her purse. The officer then ask her the obvious question: “Lady, what are you so afraid of?” She looked him right in the eye, smiled, and said, “Not a damn thing!”
That reminds me of something that happened to me a few weeks ago …
A guy was going door-to-door in our subdivision trying to drum up business for a new home security company starting up in our area. He seemed nice enough, but was persistent in trying to get me to listen to his pitch even though I insisted that we were not interested in buying anything from him. No matter how many times I politely, but firmly, said “Thank you, but we’re not interested,” he kept on and on. Finally, I’d had enough and decided that it was time to just be rude and be done with it. As I’m about to close the door he asks, “So you want your home to stay unprotected?”
I looked at him square in the eye and said “This home IS protected.” He says, “By who?”
I answered, “Smith & Wesson. Have a nice day.” and closed the door. :)
