"It's no different than a hammer. It's no different than a screwdriver. It's no different than a baseball bat or a car"
Umm, yeah. It is different. I can avoid a hammer, a bat, a screwdriver, and more than likely a car if someone is coming towards me to do harm. I can pick up something to shield myself, dodge, or run.
Not too easy when a gun is involved. Those bullets are darn quick and powerful. Much rather take my chances against another human with a non-firing weapon than a bullet coming out of a gun.
