11. Not everyone is equally able to defend themselves
machete or not.

Most weapons require some physical strength to use, like swinging a dull blade at someone.

Tell granny that she has to go up against a 6'8, 300lbs of muscle, intruder in hand to hand combat.

Or she could have a gun that requires minimal strength to use and puts them both on an even setting.

If all the good guys were strong, able martial artists and all the bad guys were weaklings and cripples we wouldn't need guns for self defense.

Often that isn't the case though.
