In areas like NYC with strict gun control, the official, municipal party line is to behave like lambs and offer no resistance. Too many people who offered no resistance were executed, apparently for fun, including the father of a girl I once dated, who was mugged and shot dead on the subway.
There have been many successful robberies of gun stores here in the north east. You could be surrounded by guns but if your mindset is that of a lamb, you will lose. Safety and security doesn't begin and end with a gun. Remember: mindset, judgment, tactics, marksmanship and firearm. These elements must all work for you as a team. You could have a killer mindset but zero judgment for taking on a four-man robbery team with a two-shot derringer. You lose.
Hits with a .380 are more effective than misses with +P+ .45 ACP.
