The spear puts a 90 pound woman on an equal footing with three 160 pound men—without a gun, try mugging a naginatadoka if she can reach any long stick, I guarantee you you'll wake up in a hospital—and the sword puts anyone on an equal footing with anyone else (real swords are weapons of sharpness, not strength). But since the criminals will have guns, the law-abiding need them, too.
