Annie Le had time to fight back

ABC News reports:
Sources also said investigators are finding evidence that the pint-size scientist who weighed only 90 pounds put up a fierce struggle against her attacker.

Blood spatter was found on a laundry cart, and a bead from her necklace was found on the floor of the basement lab where she was killed and stuffed into a wall panel.

Being legally disarmed she would had little chance against a larger stronger attacker like the man accused of the crime.  In light of this new evidence anyone who claim a weapon would have her no good are full of crap or just refusing to live in the real world. Even a small knife would have helped her get away.

Or maybe they just have a secret hankering to commit murder and want to know their victims will be helpless:
Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn't allow him to do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians.

-Alexander Hope, from the novel "Hope" by L. Neil Smith and Aaron Zelman

I have a daughter not much older than Annie Le.  The thought that she might end up dead because some bureaucrat wants to make it easy for the criminals to ply their trade makes me so mad I can't see straight.
