    I find that scenario a lot less likely, personally. It's one of those that I often see "it could happen" but nobody can ever provide a story where someone was carrying a gun for protection and had it grabbed off their body and used against them.

    Even if such a story was found, I would consider it such a rare occurrence compared to the number of times guns are successfully used in self defense that it would be a nonfactor in my strategy.

    Actually, I posted an article that pointed to 25 times where a victim disarmed an attacker armed with a gun and used that gun to drive off the attacker...I'll find it in the Basement and post it...

    If you read actual self-defense stories about attacks, you will see that victims, attacked from ambush, and grabbed, stabbed or shot, still manage to draw their weapon and fight off or kill the criminal...You just have to go to the sites that collect those news stories...you won't see much about them in the regular, national media, usually they are isolated at the local level...

    On gun owners being disarmed...generally a myth...

    Disarming the Myths Promoted By the Gun Control Lobby - Forbes

    So, even though you have to dig in order to find the stories, average joe good guys use guns to fight off armed criminals all the time...you don't here these stories a lot because the media is anti-gun by personality type, and they don't give these stories national coverage...
