    Your statement : "I am quite capable of protecting myself. I don't need cops for that. All I need is a 2" .357 revolver."

    That is not your best option when held at gunpoint or shot at, So it's not all you need.

    A gun a good option if you see someone else being held at gunpoint.

    It's a far better option than depending on cops to be exactly where you need them, exactly when you need them, which simply is not possible. So unless you can think of something more, aside from a hired team of armed bodyguards, then a good gun is what the ordinary individual needs in a threatening encounter.

    The number of armed citizens who manage to defend themselves against criminals every year says having a gun is a better option than not having one. And if for some reason it can't work for you it's still better to try and to fail than to not try at all -- which works to the criminals' general advantage.
