The TV series “Chuck” this last week had some dialogue on the benefits of carrying one’s gun with them (Chuck Versus the Predator). Chuck (Zachary Levi) formulated a mission at the Buy More electronic store and insisted the team — Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) and Casey (Adam Baldwin) — not carry guns. Chuck then gets captured by a Fulcrum Agent…
Fulcrum Agent: (speaking to Chuck, Casey, and Sarah) You get one chance — drop your guns.
Chuck: Um, sir, they don’t have any guns. I personally put this mission together and I forbade them from packing.
Fulcrum Agent: (mystified) Why would you do that?
Chuck: (making things up as he went) I don’t know, I think that guns make things too easy, and I like my spies to be tough. Look, you’re not going to shoot anyone, right?
Fulcrum Agent: It would be unprofessional not to.

Chuck: You had a gun?
Casey: I always have a gun.
