Self Defense in a World Without Guns

I was reading comments on another blog the other day, and some guy posted something like this:
“I wish they’d just get rid of all the guns and then nobody would have to worry anymore.
Idiot.
What do you do when you’re in a lonely place and are confronted with, say, three thugs, one with a knife and two with baseball bats?
Guns are still the only available means of self defense that can handle that sort of situation. A taser won’t do it, pepper spray won’t do it – you’re outnumbered. A gun is the only available type of weapon that will let you defend yourself effectively against multiple assailants, unless you are some sort of martial arts wizard.
Even a gun won’t help you if you are caught off guard – but if you’re paying attention and have a gun, you have a chance.
