It's not the guns. Is what the guns represent. Taking the initiative to defend yourself and be aware of your surroundings. Knowing that regardless of how many cops are on the beat and how many laws are on the books we are essentially still living in anarchy. Anyone can do anything at any time. Including throwing acid in your face for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
Sure, that person may suffer some consequence if ever caught but the act is done, the crime is committed and you've already been made a victim.
Saying "gun" is a quick and dirty way to say all of that.

GUNS ARE NOT THE ANSWER TO LIFES PROBLEMS.
It is too bad that the Canadian government disarmed the poor girl.
Had she been from an society that respects the right of individuals to bear and carry arms, the attacker might have decided to move to another victim - so as to not risk having his face blown off in attempt to ruin an armed person's face.

That person should have their face removed with a cheese grater.
