    Many of the stabbings in the news here always discuss whether there were defensive wounds or not, but they do not make the distinction from trying to disarm or just flailing about.

    Recenlty knife attacks have been punished heavily, so the gangs have moved to using Bearspray for attacks and robberies. You have to register to even buy one now.

    Not with a J-frame revolver with a shrouded hammer. You can keep one such firearm in a coat pocket, and if you are in a bad area, simply keep your hand on the weapon through your pocket. Revolvers with shrouded hammers will not get the hammer spur stuck on fabric when firing so it is possible at very, very close ranges to then point and fire your revolver through the coat pocket at the attacker.

    Bare in mind that this kind of instinctive fire is, once again, not going to be sufficiently accurate beyond a distance of 1-1.5 meters.

    I agree to a point, but it is not feasiable to employ this method 100% of the time. A gun is a tool and does have its place as a defensive weapon but it is not king, nothing is. The method you describe has its draw backs, range of movement and such.
