If I were to go out and buy a Lamborghini Diablo – the GT with the 6 litre V12 –
I could travel two-hundred ten miles per hour, zero to 62 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds
It’s not really that I could do that.
Doesn’t have shit to do with me.
It’s all the car’s doing.
Take the car out of the mix, I can do maybe a mile-and-a-half, two miles per hour tops.
I’d blow a gasket pushing it any further, but let me borrow the use of all that power the Diablo has and I’m just along for the ride.
A lot of people out there can grasp that concept easily enough on an intellectual level, but when it comes to their guns (which puts it on a much more personal level) it becomes an entirely different premise.
They actually think it’s them with the power.
And they expect you to buy into that.
Especially if you don’t own any weapons.
Well… who needs reason when you have firepower, right?
