Saysunkle has a link to a report on victim injury vs.defensive use of a weapon. THE most telling quote is near the end.

"Various kinds of forceful victim protective behavior, such as threatening the offender with a gun or other weapon, show the strongest negative coefficients, though none are significant. A conservative interpretation would be that armed and other forceful resistance does not appear to increase the victim’s risk of injury."

Translation = Use a gun to protect yourself from an attacker, you are LESS likely to sustain an injury. (Duh) More for the GFW's to ignore...
