Personally I think guns are very primal, just because Grok didn't have access to a semi-auto weapon doesn't mean they're not. Guns are tools just as much as Kitchenaides or many of the other things we use that Grok didn't have access to are... and they go hand-in-hand for an awesome dinner.
As for the self-defense aspect of it, living in a good place doesn't put you in any less risk. Both times I was violently attacked were in the "better" parts of town. You can be a target just as easily anywhere you are, that's why things like situational awareness are so important. If I present myself like a victim and am unaware of my surroundings I am more likely to be a victim. If I carry myself with confidence and am aware of what's happening around me I am less likely to be. After that, it becomes deciding how you want to deal with the unexpected and preparing appropriately.

Very primal and my dad just gave me a pistol as a grad present I plan on wearing it while I hike from now on cause there's bears and mountain lions in my neck of the woods and I'm only just 5ft tall. I'm sure I look like a quick and tasty snack until I'm all like BAM!
