Nope it's no misunderstanding. Gary Kleck, FSU professor has done the studies. Check that link I gave above.
If that's the case carrying a firearm in work might be a good idea. Then it depends where you get your statistics from and which ones you believe.

A 1993 nationwide survey of 4,977 households found that over the previous five years, at least 0.5% of households had members who had used a gun for defense during a situation in which they thought someone "almost certainly would have been killed" if they "had not used a gun for protection." Applied to the U.S. population, this amounts to (162,000) such incidents per year. This figure excludes all "military service, police work, or work as a security guard."
