Never Bring A Chainsaw To A Gunfight

posted on June 3, 2016

A Connecticut man learned last month that bringing a chainsaw to a gunfight isn’t the best of ideas.

According to local media reports, a road rage incident prompted an angry man to get out of his vehicle carrying a chainsaw and approach another vehicle. The man started the chainsaw, yelled racial slurs and continued to walk toward the vehicle.

The incident ended quickly when the man in the other vehicle pulled his concealed firearm, which he was carrying legally. Seeing the gun was enough to stop the chainsaw-wielding man’s approach. Interestingly, the man left, but not before accidentally cutting himself with the chainsaw, which splattered blood on the other man’s car.
