* 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.

Virtually a given in all ZombieApocalypse scenarios and [[Main/SlidingScaleOfLibertarianismAndAuthoritarianism libertarian]] utopias, and frequently the case with {{Crapsack World}}s, WorldOfBadass, {{Wretched Hive}}s and people who HADToBeSharp. When someone makes the mistake of threatening these people not knowing how well-prepared for trouble they are, it's a case of MuggingTheMonster- which frequently leads to MoreDakka and MultipleGunshotDeath. This trope sometimes averts GunsInChurch, when ordinarily it would be spectacularly inappropriate to carry weapons.

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': When Eric arrives in Ataidar, he discovers that everyone caries weapons all the time. When he asks about laws regulating weapons, Siron explains this trope is both necessary and practical. The world is infested with AlwaysChaoticEvil monsters and beyond that, it is a FantasyKitchenSink with all manner of intelligent creature with natural weapons (tiger demons and their claws, orcs with their fists, elves with their shapeshifting, etc.). Trying to regulate weapon use among humans is a Sisyphean task. Besides, since [[SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic combat magic is something anyone can learn out of a book]] everyone is armed anyways.

* Inverted in pro wrestling, where ''nobody'' is armed[[note]]Well, nobody's ''supposed'' to be; certain heels are infamous for taking concealed objects into the ring[[/note]] - not even (in {{Kayfabe}}) the security guards - instead having to rely on GoodOldFisticuffs. This allows the heels to get away with all sorts of atrocities, seize control of the arena, and even take their brawls outside the arena and out into the street. (It also explains why most characters flee in terror from TheUndertaker instead of just shooting him in the head ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968''-style.) In fact, on only one occasion has a firearm ever been used on ''Monday Night Raw'', and that was during an "off-camera" segment.

* The adult humor comic ''Cherry'' #3 includes a parody of slasher films in which Cherry is attacked by a maniac killer. Fortunately she and her friends are GenreSavvy enough to all be armed, and the maniac is [[http://cdn.anthonyscomicbookart.com/Images/Category_2/subcat_193/sat_5.jpg pulverized by gunfire]].

* In the early 21st century, most of the states of the US have passed handgun carry laws that allow most law-abiding citizens with a clean record to obtain a permit to publicly carry a firearm, and going armed has become more common. In some states, a permit is only required to conceal the weapon- you can walk around with your gun on your belt completely legally.
** The state of Vermont has no licensing requirements for carry at all, and three states (Alaska, Arizona and Oklahoma) accept Vermont state [=IDs=] as carry permits. In fact, Alaska and Arizona do not require carry permits either, they just issue them to residents for reciprocity with other states, as does Wyoming. West Virginia joined this list as of 2016.
** There are approximately 14.5 million active concealed carry permits in the U.S. as a whole as of 2016, about 6% of the total adult population. Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania each have over a million permit holders.

** As of early 2017, thirteen different U.S. states (Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming) are "constitutional carry" jurisdictions, in which no permit or license is required to carry a concealed weapon (in some cases only for residents, in some cases for anybody legally entitled to possess a weapon). Most of these states still issue permits for "reciprocity" purposes (which may be required for their residents to carry in states that require permits but will recognize out-of-state permits.)
