Have you never heard that the pen is mightier than the sword?

In the hands of a determined person, you can be killed with a pen, pencil or even a Spork.

Better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.

Maybe the idiot should not have threatened the witness in the first place. You people always want to protect the criminal. He was a criminal. If they didn't kill him there he would have done something just as stupid later, and been killed at that time. Criminals are not known for their intelligence.
