Why Mace Is The Best Alternative For Personal Protection

Share

Everybody has heard of Mace! But most people confuse the term Mace with Mace brand pepper sprays. Today we are talking about Mace brand pepper sprays. They are the premier manufacturer of defensive sprays commonly called pepper sprays or OC sprays in the entire world. The OC stands for oleoresin capsicum which is the main ingredient in all pepper sprays.

Mace brand has perhaps the widest assortment of spray patterns and formulas in the marketplace today. They make pepper sprays for defense against human assailants, against dog attacks with dog pepper spray and defense against bear attacks with their famous bear pepper spray. Mace for self-protection is the best alternative when it comes to your personal safety.

One of their best products is a triple action pepper spray that customers love. This mace for self protection features the aforementioned oleoresin capsicum, a UV marking dye for assailant identification and a component of CS tear gas-that’s the triple action!

Almost all of their sprays have a flip top safety cap that prevents accidental spraying and a contoured finger grip for easy aim. This particular pepper spray uses a stream spray pattern which means it ideal for outdoor use because it holds up better in windy conditions. It has an effective range of 12 feet and contains enough product for 20 half second bursts.

Another product that customers love is the Mace brand pepper gun that is the most accurate nonlethal self-defense spray available. It shoots out a continuous ballistic stream pattern up to 25 feet away. The Mace pepper gun uses “bag in a can” technology that allows you to replace the canister when it runs out. The gun itself has a trigger activated LED light that assists in hitting your target. It takes some getting used to hitting a target from 25 feet away, so each gun comes with one live pepper spray cartridge and a water cartridge for practicing.

Customers look to Mace for self-protection which is why it is the number one selling defensive spray in United States and perhaps the world. We have an excellent selection of Mace for self-protection products. When are you getting one?

Pickpocket Safety Tips

Share

Here is a valuable safety tip from ABC’s Good Morning America on how to avoid Pickpockets.

“It can happen in a split second. A shopper leaves a purse open in a shopping cart and turns away for a moment, perhaps to browse the shelves or try a free sample, or maybe she’s distracted by her phone, but that’s all a pickpocket needs to reach into her purse and snag her wallet.

The distracted, rushed world we live in makes shoppers easy prey, said Bob Arno, an expert in pickpocketing who advises law enforcement on how to catch crooks red-handed.

“The thieves analyze you very well,” he said. “They are like a school of fish swimming and they’ll subtly watch for the weakest victim. … The one who is not paying attention.”

Another classic pickpocket move, Arno said, is to work in pairs, where one person distracts the victim, while the other swoops in and does the stealing.

In surveillance video a man is seen getting the clerk’s attention, and while the clerk’s back is turned, the man’s partner, standing in line behind a woman, waits for her to look away from her purse and swipes her wallet.

Arno offered a few tips to prevent people from becoming pickpocketing victims.

1. Don’t Be Distracted Just Because Someone Appears Trustworthy

Most pickpocketing instances are crimes of opportunity, Arno said.
“It’s more about [people] not paying attention. … Victims make it easy for the thief,” he said. “[Thieves] all say they love the person who is lackadaisical. They can practically smell them.”

2. If It’s Easy for You to Get Into, It’s Easy for Thieves Too

Instead of leaving your purse or backpack in the cart or hanging off a chair at a restaurant, Arno suggested carrying it under your arm or keeping it in front of you.

“If I’m feeling at all threatened I have it up front,” he said.

3. Keep Everything in Your Line of Sight

Never, ever leave your purse or bag in the shopping cart and walk away from it, Arno said. It will make you a prime target.”

Campus Sexual Assault Epidemic

Share

Here’s a story out of the Los Angeles times where Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Hillsborough) called assaults on young women in colleges a Sexual Assault Epidemic.

“The prevalence of sexual assault on campuses is an epidemic,” Speier said in an interview. “It’s going to take money, resources, enforcement and a dramatic change in the culture” to fix.

Speier said research suggests that one in five women are sexually assaulted on campuses but that nearly two-thirds of universities shirk their legal duty to address the cases. Yet, she said national momentum is growing to take stronger action against the problem.

That as you know is only the tip of the iceberg. Fewer than 10% of all sexual assaults actually get reported according to one study. Part of the reason is that so many young women are drunk on alcohol or out of it from drugs that they actually came remember what happened.

Another part of the puzzle is said the assailants are known to victims in 90% of the cases because they are classmates or live together in the same dorm and see each other virtually every day.

The best way to defend yourself against any kind of assault anywhere is with a self-defense product such as a stun gun or a pepper spray. We always recommend pepper sprays that are on keychains because that way it is with you all the time. The Mace Triple Action Spray as shown here has pepper, tear gas and a UV marking dye.

Berkeley Campus Sexual Assaults

Share

Here is a story out of Business Week Magazine about how College Sexual Assaults are (mis) handled.

According to the story four women reported that the same student assaulted them. A school administrator asked that they put their story in writing and submit the stories to the administrator. For one reason or another, the written accounts never got filed. One of the students claim that the verbal accounting of the story should have been enough but the students (complainants) were convinced the school did nothing.

The perpetrator was allowed to go on a summer travel program and remained a member of the political club.

One of the students didn’t hear anything from the school for months but finally, eight months after she reported her assault, she received two three-sentence e-mails from Berkeley saying her case was resolved and the student was found “in violation of the code of conduct.” He graduated in December 2012.

Fast-forward to February 2014. The student wasn’t satisfied so she and 30 other current and former students filed two complaints with the U.S. Department of Education charging that the school violated their Title IX rights by mishandling their cases and, in some instances, discouraging them from filing reports. The 70-page, 35,000-word document alleges negligence, botched investigations, and general incompetence, and includes incidents that date to the 1970s.

The very best way that women on a college campus can defend themselves against the sexual assault on or off campus is with the self-defense product. We always recommend one that’s on a keychain because it’s more likely to be with you all the time. And you never know when you could be assaulted.

Assaults On Women

Share

This is a story from the Blackpool Gazette in the United Kingdom about Assaults On Women.

The gist of the story is that, on average, a woman will be hit or threatened by a partner 35 times before she reports it to the authorities.

“Historically domestic abuse is a hidden crime. What happens within four walls, stays within four walls.”

The abuse does not have to be physical it can be emotional verbal or psychological abuse to have the same degrading impact.

One reason that women put up with it for so long is because they fear they have no option and that there is no place to go. With their shelters all over the place and help from professionals.

Another form of abuse is being overly protective and possessive, preventing you from leading a normal lifestyle.

“It is a difficult area to deal with, but there are a number of reasons why people don’t report, or change their mind, which we have to have an understanding of – and we do have an understanding of.

“We are trained to recognize those signs. It can be coercion, it can be ongoing threats of violence. There are a number of reasons why victims change their mind after reporting and although it does frustrate the process, we understand the reasons behind it.”

If you are in a domestic abuse relationship, you don’t have to put up with it. You can develop an escape plan but most of all you need to learn how to protect yourself from further assaults. A self-defense pepper spray is one of the best ways you can do that.

The Wildfire Keychain Spray as shown here has an 18% solution of oleoresin capsicum the main ingredient in all pepper sprays. But 18% is nearly twice as hot as their competitors, making it more effective.

Domestic Violence-The Secret Killer

Share

Everyone knows about domestic violence as a criminal issue. But this article by Forbes magazine talks about it in a social, business and health context.

Read the whole story from Forbes magazine HERE.

The article makes the argument that “domestic violence reduces productivity leads to absenteeism and drives up health care costs” costing an estimated $8.3 billion was higher medical expenses and lost productivity.

“Nearly a quarter of employed women report that domestic violence has affected their work performance at some point in their lives. Each year, an estimated 8 million days of paid work is lost in the U.S. because of domestic violence” according to the article.

We’ve seen some progress since then, but the silence remains deafening. Every manager or business owner has a role to play in domestic violence if for no other reason than to improve the level of productivity of their business.

One of the best ways that women can defend themselves in a domestic abuse situation is with a self-defense product such as this Sabre brand StopStrap Pepper Spray that has a 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum with a stop strap that prevents the spray from being used against you, should it be taken away in a struggle.

College Sexual Assaults Often Overlooked

Share

Here is an opinion piece about the prevalence of College Sexual Assault on campuses nationwide. It talks about the task force that was recently created by Pres. Obama to attempt to address the issue.

The piece makes the point about parents who send their daughters off to college have a lot of things to worry about, but being raped usually isn’t one of them. They get overlooked.

One in five female students reported being the victim of a sexual assault according to a White House report. That number could be much higher because it has been estimated that only one out of every 10 cases actually gets reported. Assailants are known to the victims in 90% of the cases which may be why so few are reported-they are classmates.

“President Barack Obama made an impassioned plea for change, calling on young people to acknowledge that sexual assault is unacceptable and urging them to summon the bravery to stand up and say so.”

“If the nation wants to reduce the attacks that ruin the lives of young women, and men, every year on college campuses find out why sexual assaults occur and often go unreported.”

Campus Safety Tips

• Don’t leave windows and doors in your home or vehicle unlocked.

• Don’t disclose personal information to individuals you are not familiar with. This includes social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

• Have a safety buddy, someone you can call for a ride or for help, and create a code word or phrase that means “Come help me out of this”

• Before going out tell a friend where you’re going and when you’ll be back. Let them know if your plans change.

• Never leave your drink unattended or with someone you don’t know. Date rape drugs are easy to use. And men are just as vulnerable as women.

• Don’t take drinks or anything else from strangers, even food.

• Don’t offer rides to people you don’t know.

• Above all, trust your instincts.

We always recommend that women carry a self-defense product like this Fox Labs Hard Case Keychain that has 5.3 million Scoville heat units and fires a heavy stream pattern up to 10 feet away. Its taser/ECD compatible.

The knockout game is spreading across the country like wildfire. It is a situation that uses innocent citizens who are the victims of unprovoked attacks where the goal of the “game” is to knock out the victim in one punch. These attacks are particularly vicious because frequently they happen to senior citizens or women.

We always recommend having some nonlethal self-defense product such as a pepper spray or a stun device with you. Pepper sprays have some restrictions but are legal everywhere. They can disable any assailant for as much as 45 minutes allowing you time to escape a potentially dangerous situation.

Teen Relationship Violence

Share

Here’s a story by the Star-Herald newspaper about preventing Teen Dating Violence which is becoming a much bigger problem every year because television, music, video games and the Internet perpetuate the idea that dating violence is acceptable.

“For teenagers starting to date, this misinformation gives them a false view of relationships, making it harder for teens to recognize when they are in an abusive relationship.”

February has been designated as Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to raise awareness and draw attention to this growing problem.

“Dating violence can be emotional, verbal, physical or sexual. Over time, it escalates, putting teens in danger.

Extreme jealousy is a major warning sign of dating violence. The abuser will want to document every movement the other person makes. They will try isolate their partner from friends and family.

They will say you can’t talk to certain people, and their behavior can mimic that of stalking. They want extreme control.”

Coercive behavior and a lack of respect of boundaries are also a sign.”

Many young women are not fully aware of what a healthy relationship should be, so they have no frame of reference other than what they see and hear. And much of that is not healthy. The CDC has estimated that 1 in 5 young women are victims of teen relationship abuse
Often abusers try to shift the blame to somebody else thus failing to take responsibility for their abusive actions. Abusers many times shift the blame to the victim.

Domestic Violence On The Rise In Las Vegas

Share

There was a story recently out of Las Vegas, Nevada that talked about the rise in domestic violence in that city. So far this year five homicides involving domestic violence have happened in the Las Vegas area. In 2013, 32% of all homicides were a direct result of domestic violence. One officer from the Las Vegas Family Crimes Bureau said that a lot of factors are beyond the Police Department’s control and that tensions run high in domestic violence cases and law enforcement has to get in the middle of it. He blames the high rate of domestic violence on the transient population of the city and the 9% unemployment rate.

Police statistics show that close to 48% of all women in Las Vegas will be subjected to some form of domestic violence. That is much higher than the national average which is closer to 30%.

“The economy is a huge factor,” he said. “Financially, people are struggling, and that just adds more stress. Relationships are already stressful enough. Throw in some of these extra factors like a lack of money, being foreclosed upon and not knowing where you’re gonna live, those are huge factors and lead to a lot of our calls.”

Domestic Violence Up In UK

Here is a story out of London England where the Daily Mail did a story about domestic violence showing that there was a sharp rise in domestic violence in the last quarter of 2013, with a 15.5% increase. Victims suffered abuse at home resulting in a 5.1% rise in the number of attacks with injuries compared to the previous three months.

You can read the rest of the story on DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

Law enforcement authorities were trying to put a different spin on it saying that it was because more people were reporting incidents, rather than the number of incidents increasing. They also pointed out that the number of third-party reporting has increased.

According to the statistics that law enforcement provided the primary in London has dropped by 25% in last decade, but that is still lagging behind decreases in other parts of the country where the rates have fallen even further. And no one seems to have an explanation for that.

In this country domestic violence is on the increase not only because or more incidents of the book because more people are reporting those incidents because they have greater faith in law enforcement pursuing the matter.

Parking Lot Assaults-On The Rise?

Share

Last week in Pueblo, Colorado there were three assaults that has the community on edge. Police are downplaying these incidents as normal, saying that it doesn’t represent an increase in crime but just that people are reporting the crimes quicker.

Read the whole story HERE.

It is not a coincidence that all three of these assaults occurred in parking lots. Next to domestic violence, where assaults occur in the home, parking lots represent the highest risk location for assaults. Most parking lots offer “perps” excellent places to hide, between and under cars, to stage surprise attacks on victims who are not paying attention after leaving a store heading to their car.

Police have captured one suspect and have leads on the others. One victim told a television station that she carries a piece of lead pipe in her car as what she called the “equalizer.”

We have always recommended that women carry some kind self-defense product with them and have it handy in their hands when they’re in a parking lot on their way to their car. We have always recommended that they approach their car with caution, unlocking the doors before they get there and locking the doors quickly after they get in.

Have you ever been assaulted in a parking lot? Please share your experience with us.

One of the best self-defense products you can carry with you is pepper spray that can disable an assailant for as long as 45 minutes. We particularly recommend pepper sprays are on keychains because they are more likely to be with you.

Can New California Bill For Reporting Rapes On College Campuses Be The Answer?

Share
more info here

There is a new law before the California General Assembly that would change the way rapes on or near college campuses are reported.

One of the big problems, in our opinion, is that sexual assaults on college campuses have typically been handled by on campus personnel with no outside interference from local police. This has led to a a plethora of problems all designed to protect the reputation of the University at the expense of the victims.

Read the whole Newsweek story HERE.

This new law would require that all sexual assaults on or near college campuses be handled by local police departments leaving the universities completely out of the process. We hope that this passes in California and further that it spreads throughout the country. But don’t underestimate the power of the political machine that colleges and universities generate.

The sponsor of the bill said he expects a tough fight over the bill — just about every member of the legislature has a major university in their district.

In the meantime, the best way the females on a campus can defend themselves is with a self-defense product such as pepper spray or stun gun.

We like the pink SMACK Stun Gun because it has 5 million volts and is so small it has a keychain attachment.
