122. Unqualified absolute.
Depending on the circumstances, yes there are many things you can do without a gun.

There exist some circumstances where you may not survive if you are not prepared to fight for your life. A firearm can be a useful tool while fighting for your life.

No one is claiming anything more than that. They are not magic talismans. They do not always save you depending on circumstances, or how you employ it.

But there are certainly situations where having one is better than not. Hell, we had an off duty cop stop to help someone change a tire, he was robbed and shot/killed for it. He was unarmed. Had he been armed, he might still have died depending on how they surprised him. But then again, he may have been able to save his life.
