Against a gang of thugs armed with anything, you'd only be able to take out one, leaving the rest to beat you down and gang rape your family. I will agree to your point about it being a safer world with only flintlocks when criminals agree to attack one at a time and promise to give you enough time to reload.

Try a flintlock, you won't be dissapointed. An inline is fun, but a flintlock is ten times the fun. If you can keep it on target after seeing a flash in front of your eye, you're a better marksman than someone with a high powered rifle and a scope. All that requires is a steady trigger pull.
