Probably true for properly trained and legally registered owners, but I also suspect the majority of folks packing on the street are neither.
And no question about it, there are far more hold ups than properly trained and licenced gun owners who have accidents or go 'Rambo'. But among the many untrained people who are packing at all times 'imagining' what they will do to that 'bad guy" when he jumps out from the corner ... lets just say I'm not convinced the outcome for survival in such random sudden attacks would be any more likely than if he or she was unarmed. Most trained gun owners wouldn't be packing at all times in any event!
