I've heard that from many anti-gun people.

I like to point out that according to the FBI in 2010, twice as many people were beaten to death than shot with rifles of any kind (including AR-15s, AK47s, etc), so the idea that you can just "slug it out" and everything will end well is ridiculous.


Two situations:
1. You are in danger of losing your life and you have only one option.
2. You aren't in danger and you can diffuse the situation or simply walk away.


People who don't own guns usually don't understand this until they own guns.
