Since Hollywood is on a bent to remake movies (and most of the time, screwing them) I thought I’d do the same with an old post from 2011. The original post was Why Concealed Carry helps those who do not carry, but as The Packetman smartly suggested in the comments, it also applies to Gun Free Zones.

Imagine two identically looking bowls with 100 M&Ms each:


Bowl One has 100 fresh M&Ms reap for picking by anybody.


Bowl 2 has 95 fresh and delicious M&Ms and 5 M&Ms laced with a very fast acting poison but indistinguishable from the rest.

Question: Which bowl will be avoided like the plague by nutjobs and other human predators, trying to score a high body count?

  1. Even if you double the number of people in the room who want M&Ms(to simulate the anti-gun psychos’ claim that guns cause more criminals), bowl 2 is safer than bowl 1.

  2. i like this analogy very much. So much, in fact, I plan to use it often and to allow people to think I thought of it myself.
