116. If attacked....
your odds of being injured are 2.5 times as high if you resist with a weapon other than a gun or with no weapon at all as they are if you resist with a gun. And contrary to all the hype, your odds of being injured if you comply with your attacker are 50% higher than if you resist with a gun.

To sum up: the odds of being hurt in an attack are very good if you resist without a gun, lower if you don't resist, and lowest if you resist with a gun. These figures are from DoJ, not the NRA.
