In 1973 the journalist Ted Simon set out from the UK to travel around the world by motorcycle. He wrote about it in the book Jupiter’s Travels, which I enjoyed very much. Early in, he wrote about his decision whether or not to bring a gun. After mulling it over he realized that carrying a gun increased his chances of getting shot, because he would behave like someone who had a gun. If he behaved like someone who didn’t have a gun, he’d take precautions and avoid situations.
