  2. he’d never heard of a gun referred to as mreely a tool before, and he’d much rather defend himself with a knife. Because, after all, he can disarm someone with a knife. He didn’t like it when I pointed out that a knife is a close-quarters weapon, and a criminal entering my home with a gun would have ME disarmed from a distance, before I could get close enough to use the knife. Another friend of his argued that my analysis that a gun by itself is mreely a hunk of innocuous metal, much like a hammer, was basically an insult to hammers everywhere and that hammers were not inherently dangerous. I gave up, and my cousin cried Crickets. I decided not to dignify that with a response.Hilariously, my cousin is Texas born and raised. Still lives there. It’s amazing to me that he hasn’t been tarred and feathered by his neighbors.
