In the Quentin Tarantino film "Death Proof" (originally part of the pseudo double feature "Grind House"), there is a scene where four women are sitting at a table discussing various things. One of the characters mentions that she carries a pistol for self defense...I am trying to find the exact quotes, but there were some pretty funny (and apt) reasons for CCW advanced. Here is some of what I remember (sans the overwhelming profanity, it IS a Tarantino movie, after all) for your enjoyment.
Abbie: There are other things you could carry besides a gun, you know... How about pepper spray?
Kim (CCW girl): If some blankity-blanker tries to rape me, I want to shut him down, not give him a skin rash!
Abbie: Well, how about a knife, at least?
Kim: You know what happens to blankity-blankers that carry a knife, don't you? Don't you? Blankity-blankers get SHOT, that's what happens...
There were more - maybe some other posters remember them better. It was actually a strong pro-CCW position, couched in funny and profanity-laced dialogue.
