There is a opinion about weapons that many people love to throw around which is this, never carry a weapon, be it a gun or knife, for self protection unless you’re willing to use it.

A Fatwa for those that don’t know is essentially religiously motivated hit and Rushdie had to live under one for ten years between 1988 and 1998.
