*crips proceed to pull out 9 mills, MAC 10's and AK-47's and open fire on me, none of the bullets hit because their aim sucks so much, and the guns fall apart when they try to reload*
Crips: AWW SHIT MAN, LOOKS LIKE WE BE FITIN WIT BLADEZ!
*The Crips all pull out switch blades and try to cut me, but the blades are dull because they use them as screw drivers to fix their shitty guns and then never sharpen them*
