This drabble comes from a play by William Mastrosimone called Bang Bang You're Dead.
So this drabble is by him.

A Gun in your Hand

When you have a gun, people talk nice. When you have a gun, people look at you like a VIP. Somebody bumps you, they say, excuse me. You walk different, when you have a gun. You talk different, when you have a gun. You think different, when you have a gun. It’s so cool when you have a gun. It’s an A-plus, slam dunk, touchdown all in one. Love that military stance. You ain’t got a chance. Respect, watch out, move aside. You can be what ever you want to be, ‘cause a gun in your hand is a Ph.D.

William wrote is a playwright from Trenton New Jersey and has written other plays including: The Woolgatherer, Extremities, Shivaree, and Cat's Paw.

This isn't the Broadway showtune lyrics from Annie Get Your Gun?

When I walk around with my gun people just roll their eyes. Maybe if I hold it sideways...

Here in Texas a gun in your hand doesn't matter much. Remember the subway train scene in the movie Predator? That's the Texas way of handing problems.

I know. It's not that I didn't believe you, but just my way of saying it sounds like lyrics from a Broadway musical.
