Jesus said "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one".
36He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’b; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me.

He is chiding them for having thoughts of violence in their hearts and after his crucifixion, he'll still be with them.
Goodness, I am not a Christian, but I know quite well he didn't mean, "you're on your own" which is quite contrary to his message. He was saying that I am your protector, and will always be. Your hearts look to a sword, but all you need is me.
Wouldn't really hurt, wouldn't really help either though. That's one thing to keep in mind, gun laws have about as much as violent movies in terms of the degree of the affect they will have.
