“If the safety’s on, you’re good as gone”

The American adult animated sitcom South Park aired a program about guns on December 9, 2015, titled “PC Principal: Final Justice.” Jim-Bob, a gun salesman, told customers in his gun store:

“If the safety’s on, you’re as good as gone.”

The line was presented in an official tweet from the show.


Wikipedia: South Park
South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show revolves around four boys—Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick—and their bizarre adventures in and around the titular Colorado town. Much like The Simpsons, South Park utilizes a very large ensemble cast of recurring characters. Intended for mature audiences, the show has become infamous for its crude language and dark, surreal humor that satirizes a wide range of topics.

It’s telling that with even with so much foreshadowing and hundreds of people packing, the show had no shootings. There were brief hits on easy access to guns (the South Park boys are shown to immediately get them) and safety (the gun store owner says, “Remember, if the safety’s on, you’re good as gone”) but certainly no big moment for gun grabbers to seize upon.

3. “If the safety’s on, you’re good as gone”
In “PC Principal Final Justice,” Trey Stone and Matt Parker really take aim at gun culture. In South Park, guns have become so common that the gun salesman has even coined a new phrase: “If the safety’s on, you’re good as gone.”
