Huh. As someone more sympathetic to gun control than you, it doesn't work at all to counter that idea--showing that if you have a gun, your opponent can sometimes take it from you makes guns look less, not more, safe. What does work to counter it is times when the gun is *not* taken away from a defending gun owner. Your stories in which assailants are shot or otherwise driven off by gun owners work to counter the "own a gun and it'll get snatched from you" narrative.
