Is this a surprise? Nope.
"I got your gun!" Captain James T. Kirk, Star Trek (2009) "Don't try to be a great man. Just be a man, and let history make its own judgments." Zefram Cochrane, Star Trek: First Contact
gun control no! trigger control yes!
it is ALWAYS better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it. Get a gun and GET TRAINING. Training is the key to making proper and responsible decisions in the use of deadly force and training is the key to expertly defending yourself in an unavoidable lethal encounter.

To quote Clint Eastwood: "I believe in gun control; if there's a gun around, I want to control it".
To the OP, this is about the 1000th time they have proven the same point. Its like watching a rerun of a movie and expecting it to end differently.

Looking for me? I'm the middle aged guy with the expanding waistline and receding hairline exiting my pickup truck with the big gun on my hip!
Professor Kleck and Professor Lott have proven all of that already and documented it in their books. Prof. Lott has a new book out on just that sort of thing.
The beauty of all this is both professors started out as liberals who already had their conclusions drawn up. That is until they both did actual fact searching and research. What they both found out was that guns were of major use in a positive sense.
Here is another expert on the issue.
That covers most things.
