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

* 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.)

* 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.

* ''Literature/{{Noob}}'' mentions this is quite visibly the case of Piratas island population, including children. Fortuately, the island in question in a FictionalVideoGame and the protagonists don't do anything that could cause the NonPlayerCharacter population to draw their weapons.

** A couple of other episodes afterwards showcase that Vash's 60 ''Billion'' Double-Dollar bounty means that when someone in a city identifies him and there's no issue of the week (yet) to fix, there are absolutely ''no'' stops to what people will do to try to capture him. As in shooting him with ''rocket launchers'' and dismiss the destruction as "eh, the bounty will cover it". This ends up illustrating how much of a CrapsackWorld [[MeaningfulName Planet Gunsmoke]] is and how out of place Vash's pacifist beliefs are: people are armed and are still highly desperate because CrooksAreBetterArmed... and then there's the [[PersonOfMassDestruction Gung-Ho Guns]]...
