Comment stuff in Emacs

I find myself commenting a lot of stuff, so I made this little helper function that either comments or uncomments the current line (if no region is selected) or all lines in the selected region.

(defun comment-or-uncomment-current-line-or-region ()
  "Comments or uncomments current current line or whole lines in region."
    (let (min max)
      (if (region-active-p)
          (setq min (region-beginning) max (region-end))
        (setq min (point) max (point)))
       (progn (goto-char min) (line-beginning-position))
       (progn (goto-char max) (line-end-position))))))

My binding:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-7") 'comment-or-uncomment-current-line-or-region)
