No, you misunderstand my point. Consistantly it has been shown that those who would harm you are typically not motivated to avoid the situation. The purpose of a firearm in self-defense is only margianlly based on deterence, more so to simply stay alive.

Whether or not it deters a bad person is secondary to that point.

Note the article - it wasn't until they had been struggling for minutes that the police arrived. He's very lucky he isn't dead. And, armed, trained citizens have demonstrated again and again that when you need it, it's nice to have. You just won't read about it that often... sort of runs counter culture to the main stream media.
