* During the escape from the Death Star in ''Film/ANewHope'', Han Solo chases a small group of Stormtroopers right into a room full of MORE Stormtroopers. In the Special Edition, Lucas [[ThisIsSpinalTap turns it up to 11]] by making the room an entire ''Hangar'' full of [[{{Mooks}} CGI Imperials]].

* Referenced in ''MissCongeniality''. After Gracie tackles a guy in the crowd thinking he was a shooter (he was reaching for his lighter and a cigarette), she tries to defend her actions by pointing out the man did have a gun. The response is: "Of course he had a gun! This is Texas, ''everyone'' has a gun! My ''florist'' has a gun!"

* ''ThePresidentsAnalyst'' is cracking up under the pressure of his job - he meets his girlfriend Nan in a hotel cocktail lounge and rants madly about spies out to get him. When she urges him to get help he snaps out of it, thinks about how he sounds, and then puts it to the test. He loudly fakes getting shot and crumples to the floor. A moment later he opens his eyes and laughs triumphantly as everyone in the room is on their feet holding a gun...[[spoiler: then is horrified to see Nan is too - then he [[AllJustADream wakes up]].]]

** In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'' there is an attempt to coerce cooperation out of the patrons of Biers. This was also a poor choice.

Added DiffLines:

* In medieval Europe, everyone carried a knife. This was sharp enough to be used for defense, though the main usage was eating. (You wouldn't be given silverware at the table.)

Added DiffLines:

* Season 19, Episode 10 of SouthPark, "PC Principal Final Justice": The main RunningGag for this episode is that absolutely ''everyone'' in town has a gun, culminating in a giant MexicanStandoff at a gun show.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/{{Newsflesh}}'' post-ZombieApocalypse world, it's considered nearly suicidal stupidity to venture out of one's home without at least one gun and/or armed guards. It's not considered at all remarkable for people to even ''sleep'' with guns in easy reach.

** Sure enough, the first civilian to show owning a firearm is a farmer. And the second civilian to show owning a piece? Another farmer's mum.

* In ''Film/HotFuzz'', someone casually mentions that there are more guns in the English countryside than in the cities. Sure enoug, during the final confrontation, literally everyone in town has a gun.
