Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight
By Ken K. Gourdin
A Utah driver pulled a knife on a Utah Highway Patrol trooper who stopped him for speeding in a construction zone. See coverage of the incident in Salt Lake City’s Deseret News here (last accessed June 12, 2017):
Never bring a knife to a gun fight. Reminds me of the time two guys, one with a baseball bat and the other with a tire iron, confronted each other on the local main street. My father, who served on the town’s police force for 30 years, pulled up. The one said, “I’ve got a baseball bat”; the other said, “I’ve got a tire iron.”; my father reached down, unholstered his duty weapon, and said, “And I’ve got a .357.” Guess who won?
