Decide how well protected you want to be when the worst happens, wear your gear accordingly. You don't "need" any of that stuff, but that isn't what matters.

Nobody here said anything remotely anti-self defense. Self defense means somebody is attacking or is definitely about to. It doesn't mean that when somebody taps on your windown you get to point a gun at them, much less shoot them in the face. Especially from within the safety of your car. A motorcyclist pulling up next to you and tapping on your window is not a threat. If you don't want to deal with them yelling at you that's fine, just keep your window rolled up and ignore them.
Your example wasn't even relevant to the discussion...
