I would say that a ccw’d pistol is the same as a motorcycle helmet.
I wouldn't say that. Not the same as seatbelts, either. The fire extinguisher comparison is better.

Because, while there are the similarities of "very good to have when/if you need it", there is a difference with helmets and seat belts, and that is the LAW.

There are still some exceptions, but in general, the LAW requires you to wear (use) that helmet and seatbelt if you are in public.

NO law requires you to be armed, CCW or otherwise, and some places do have laws against it.
