    "Death Proof" and CCW

    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.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I was wondering where she kept that "roscoe" concealed, considering her outfit (them jeans were a might tight for an N-frame revolver, no?), but it was a good scene (the "why I carry" scene) and overall a good film - though I bet a lot of the references and homage pieces were lost on most folks...

    There are a bunch you wouldn't get unless you are an American child of the seventies... There's a line from the "Mr. Microphone" commercial, for instance, as well as dozens of references to 70s B-movies, sex-ploitation flicks, blacks-ploitation flicks, and, well, grind-house flicks...

    Then, of course, there were a BUNCH of references to other Tarantino films, and the "Tarantino-Brand" things like Big Kahuna Burger, Red Apple cigs, and so on... The whole thing was almost one long in-joke. I'm sure there were tons more that I missed, as well...
