A gun isn't some "ward evil" talisman. If the man got into such a situation where this happened to him, having a gun might not have done much more to help him out. Proper self defense is more about situation awareness and precautionary measures than it is about having a weapon or knowing how to fight. If a man is gonna sucker punch you and then stab you repeatedly, the chances of you being able to use your gun to protect yourself is somewhere on the scale between "zero" and "probably jack shit."
