Robbers and rapists love gun control laws, because they don't want you to have a gun to defend yourself.
Police rarely prevent violent crime. They rarely even appear as a violent crime is being committed. The police come after a crime is committed. They write a crime report and sometimes try to find the criminal
Laws against robbery and rape don't prevent robbery and rape. And gun control laws don't prevent violent criminals from carrying pistols. Laws merely allow punishment later.
Pistols are great equalizers. A 90-pound woman with a pistol is just as strong as a 300-pound man with a pistol. Indeed, she has an advantage. She is a smaller target.
