* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' when a HystericalWoman has a panic attack when it appears that the plane is going to crash. Creator/LeslieNielsen begins slapping her, but then is interrupted by a stewardess, who takes over and resumes the slapping. The stewardess is in turn interrupted by a nun, and then ''she'' begins to slap the woman mercilessly. We then pan alongside an absurdly long line of passengers, all of them wielding increasingly deadly weapons with which to assault the poor woman.

* ''Film/DeathWishVTheFaceOfDeath'' has a scene where a kid with a message runs inside a church that's holding a funeral service. Since the service is for a mafia member, the church is filled with jumpy criminals who pull a gun on the kid when he comes inside.

* TheHistoryChannel reality show ''Series/PawnStars''. Lampshaded heavily in the pitch reel for the show, but downplayed with the actual series.

Virtually a given in all ZombieApocalypse scenarios and [[Main/SlidingScaleOfLibertarianismAndAuthoritarianism libertarian]] utopias, and frequently the case with {{Crapsack World}}s, WorldOfBadass, 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. This trope sometimes averts GunsInChurch, when ordinarily it would be spectacularly inappropriate to carry weapons.

* The Second Amendment of the United States of America has caused the country to develop a reputation of everyone being trigger-happy gun owners.

* The Second Amendment of the United States of America has caused the country to develop a reputation of everyone being trigger-happy gun owners. An (untrue) urban legend that Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto said "You cannot invade America. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." exemplifies this.

* This is pretty much a given in the world of ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', especially in the city of Chel'el'sussoloth, which following a 15 year timeskip is largely embroiled in a civil war. And even before the war the ever present threat of demonic possession meant it was practical to keep at least a sword around in case your family members or friends suddenly started trying to eat your brains.
