Well, what about when the assailant is bigger, strong and faster than you? What if there are multiple assailants? What if, as in the case of this defensive gun use, the assailant is armed with another type of weapon, such as a blunt object? Guns are equalizers against all types of attacks, not just gun attacks.
A music store owner in PA was surely glad to have his firearm when a customer, who browsed in the store for several minutes, left the store and came back a minute later with a club.
The suspect then used that club to beat the store owner’s wife in the head (I assure you, such an attack can easily be lethal).

The Chief of Police said they are unsure of the motivation for the attack.
The owner’s wife is being treated for her injuries at an area hospital.
