You see, that is interesting in itself, because some people think stories like that justify the "I can save people from bad guys if I am out there with a gun" thinking.
I don't know why you seem surprised, since I have made it rather clear that the relative increase or decrease in statistical risks matter not to my mind. It all comes down to this, do I have a basic human right to self-defense? If I do, then I also have a right to at least the same quality & type of weapon that is available to my greatest threats, as well as an actual right to make use of them. If I consider my greatest threat to be the rise of a tyrannical version of my own government, or the invasion of a foreign army; then I have a right to (conventional) weapons of war, although I can agree that the society at large can impose polite limitations on how & where those weapons of war can be made use of, at least during peaceful times. (BTW, despite few actual laws that prohibit morons from carrying an AR15 into a WalMart for a shopping trip, it is considered rude and a sign of general stupidity) Likewise, however, if I'm arming against being mugged or robbed; say I'm a convenience store owner in a shifty neighborhood, who has to carry cash deposits to the bank on a regular basis; I have a right to arm up with the best weapon that I
consider reasonable, which would likely be a single handgun with enough rounds available to make myself feel comfortable. Perhaps I'm getting old, and am not quite as good a shot, nor as quick at reloading a spare magazine, as I was at 20. (shot capacity is a case of diminishing returns, but I should be the one to decide where the extra round isn't worth the extra bother). The actor I posted the 3-gun video about, Keenu Reeves, has been asked about gun ownership, and has stated "why not? but I don't own any"; while Ice-T (rapper & actor) has been asked the same questions and said, "I'll give up my guns when everyone else does first". Both, apparently, are quite proficient with firearms, whether or not they own them, or rent them. Reeves apparently doesn't feel unsafe in his life, but Ice-T was born in Newark, New Jersey; and grew up surrounding by, and occasionally a member of, street gangs. For both of them, the risks of ever being shot are very, very low; just as they are low for most of us. Yet, it's not like famous & rich rappers have never been assassinated. In fact, one google search tells me that a rapper called "Bankroll Fresh" was assassinated just this morning by "drive by". One might assume, outside looking in, that some subcultures in the United States are more violent than others.
