Weapons carry for self defense

I have only been robbed once. It was by 2 young men with a knife. They dropped my wallet and ran when my friend produced a gun. He didn't have to use it, only had to show that we were not to be victims. I am 70 years old and at the mercy of any thug with fists or a knife who thinks he has a civil right to steal from me or hurt me just becase he does not like me. If he ignores my weapon and continues to attack me, he is violating my rights and voluntarily waiving his.
