She doesn't need protection. Open your eyes, Rescue-ites. She's a stronger character than that.
nail on the head
however, with that being said, I have no problem with tony making a spontaneous decision to put her in a suit, to physically keep her safe. They are his house, they get attacked, he can't get her out in time, so they make the quick decision to put her in a suit. Could be like..two minutes, and one shot. I have no problem with that as well.
As sam said though, she doesn't NEED protection. But in a scenario like this ^ where she may not be able to get out alive, then throwing her in a suit of armor to prevent physical damage, and hiding..that's fine by me. As long as that's all the armor is used for..a safe house
