Few examples on a practical note

1. Assume we have a free society. And you inherited land in a close knit community who does not approve your plans for using your land that otherwise complies with all local laws. Would you feel safe with a simple pistol?

2. Assume you are a woman whose husband threatened to kill you. While a judge put a restraining order, the husband disappeared and made threatening phone calls. Would you feel safe to wait 15 days to buy a gun?
