Underachievement Unlocked

9 jun. 2024

Back in the 90s, I had a friend who jumped through many hoops to get a carry permit in NYC. He bought a gun and started carrying regularly on his subway ride from Brooklyn to Manhattan. He sold it a few months later

I asked him why he went through all that trouble only to sell it so soon. He said,

“The longer I carried it, the more I started itching for an excuse to use it”

I think about that a lot

“Washington man fatally shoots 17-year-old who had BB gun, says he ‘had a duty to act’ “
