With the utmost respect and humbility, how much use do you think firearms would have been against the London Bridge and Manchester Arena attacks?
None at all.
While it is true that there will sometimes be circumstances where a gun is not useful in self defense, that does not refute the general concept of using a gun for self defense, nor does it refute the argument in favor of responsible individuals making that choice for themselves whether to have a gun for self defense.

You might have a point there.
So is letting assholes drive cars or run parliament.
