Why Are Self Defense Weapons For Women So Important?

Share

The answer to that question “why are self defense weapons for women so important?” is relatively easy to answer. If you know that women are assaulted so many more times than men are you begin to see why women need self-defense weapons so much.

Just take for example the recent White House report on sexual assaults on women. That report revealed that nearly one in five women or nearly 22,000,000 have been raped in their lifetimes. The report went on to say that women of all races are targeted but some are more vulnerable than others with 33.5% of all multiracial women having been raped.

College women are particularly vulnerable with one in five women having been sexually assaulted while in college.

But the place where women are assaulted more often than any other is in the home with domestic violence. Over 25% of all women in a domestic relationship, either married or not, will be subjected to domestic abuse assault. We learned just the other day that this figure also applies to teen domestic violence.

We find these figures shocking but they help explain why self defense weapons for women have become so popular. Almost every manufacturer of self-defense products including Streetwise, Stun Master, Guard Dog and others including Taser International have been manufacturing self-defense weapons for women for years.

The female market is the largest market for self defense weapons, so it is no wonder that these manufacturers cater to them.

We have always recommended that women carry a self defense weapon with them wherever they go. These pepper spray self defense weapons for women offer a great opportunity to do that because they are small, inexpensive, easy to carry and legal in just about all jurisdictions with just a few cities and states having restrictions.

Aussie Epidemic In Domestic Violence

Share

Here’s a story out of ABC news in Australia concerning what many are calling a Domestic Violence Epidemic.

The story goes on to say that domestic violence is it epidemic proportions and that it is reached the point where it is time to clear a national emergency.

“I think it’s about saying for once we are going to pull together all our resources and treat this in the way we would if it was a national disaster of any kind, like a flood or a bushfire, and deal with it head on.”

In Australia, domestic violence is the leading cause of death and injury in women under 45, with more than one woman murdered by her current or former partner every week.

There are young victims too, with more than one million children affected by domestic violence.

It accounts for 40 per cent of police time, the cost to the economy is $13.6 billion per year.

“Domestic and family violence is common. It’s [an] epidemic and it’s a national disgrace.”

Men need to wake up to the fact that it is a men’s problem … until they wake up to that fact, nothing’s going to change.

“What we now need to do is have that conversation with men, about how they can change that culture.”

Hurdle In Domestic Violence

Share

Domestic violence in a relationship is about as difficult a situation to handle as any. It is fraught with hurdles. This story is about one Domestic Violence Hurdle that typifies the problems with domestic violence.

It essentially talks about police involvement.

“When a police officer responds to a (domestic violence) call, the first thing he or she does is to separate the people involved and try to piece together what happened. The officers then attempt to discover who the main aggressor is in the situation. Ninety-nine percent of the time, that person is the male, but he and other officers have also seen females who instigate the violence.

Many times the victims of domestic violence do not cooperate with the police. Whether it’s because they are still in love with the aggressor or because the aggressor is the victim’s only source of income, there are many victims who do not want to press charges against their abusers and will not testify against them in court.

The question then becomes why do so many victims back away from filing charges when the police show up? Why do women choose to stay with their abusers rather than go out on their own and live a violence free life?

Research shows that it can take as many as seven attempts to leave a domestic violence situation before they actually leave.

Among the many internal and external factors play a role in the person’s choice to remain in an abusive situation are threats made against the victim or family members, cultural or religious beliefs, and a lack of resources such as a place to live or access to a stable income. Internally, the most consistent thing is that they suffer from poor self-image and confidence, which is what the abuser preys on.

The question for so many women is it easier to stay and put up with the abuse or leave? It is not easy to leave.
There are ways to identify the signs before it gets out of control, and there are plenty of resources if you’re feeling scared or alone.

Among many other things women need are nonlethal self-defense weapons.

This Sabre Pepper Spray is on a keychain and has a range of 10 feet with a ballistic stream delivery which reduces the chance for blowback.

Knockout Game Assaults-Best Defense

Share

This is a story from Des Moines Iowa about the latest craze in felony assaults sweeping the nation called Knockout Game Assaults.

The story details how two Iowa State University students think that they were the targets of the deadly game called the “knockout game” where players hit unsuspecting people and try to knock them out. There have been reports of the game being played in cities across the U.S., sometimes causing serious injuries or death.

As police will tell you this is hardly a “game.” This version of it started in New York about two months ago and is rapidly spreading across the country. It happens with such speed that victims have a hard time identifying their assailants and they’re usually no witnesses.

Knockout Assaults Suspect Arrested

Share

Here’s a story and video about the latest rage in assaults called Knockout Assaults.

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.

Scotland Dog Attacks Double

Share

Here’s a story from the daily record in the United Kingdom, which reports the number of Dog Attacks in Scotland where most victims requiring hospital treatment has doubled in the last 15 years. Most of the victims are children, leaving citizens screaming for action.

“The daily record newspaper called on the Scottish Government to take action after a spate of horrific attacks on children.”

The newspaper campaign is calling for:

1. The return of dog licensing, with stringent suitability tests for prospective dog owners.

2. Dog wardens to police the new system, funded through the cost of the license.

3. Mandatory micro-chipping of all dogs to keep proper track of all animals to encourage responsible ownership.

Dog attacks and dog bites are not just a problem in the United States where over 5 million people are attacked every year and close to 1 million of them requiring hospitalization.

Have you ever been attacked or bitten by a dog? Feel free to share your experience with us. Would a dog defensive spray have helped?

“Knockout Game” Hits Boonies In Canada

Share

Here is a story from Revelstoke, British Columbia in Canada, a town that has a population of less than 7500 and is located 400 miles east of Vancouver-in other words out in the middle of nowhere.

The story is about a wave of how high profile assaults in North America called the Knockout Game.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have been investigating a series of “disturbing, random and violent attacks involving blindsiding a victim with no warning.” The object of the “game” is to knock someone out with one punch.

An RCMP spokesman said that it wasn’t really clear what the motivation behind these attacks was but he speculated that it could be the “knockout game” that has been spreading across North America like wildfire. He was very quick to point out that this is not a game at all, but instead of vicious violent felony assault.

Canada does not have any restrictions on the use of self-defense products as far as we know, so a pepper spray like this one on a Keychain would be a good way for people to defend themselves.

Aussie Domestic Violence Crackdown

Share

If you think for one minute the United States is the only country that has a domestic violence problem think again!

Here’s a story out of Australia, where police in Alice Springs have made more than 280 arrests as part of an operation targeting domestic violence.

Read the whole story HERE.

For some reason domestic violence seems higher in this central Australian city where “statistics show Indigenous women are 45 times more likely to be victims of domestic violence than others in the Northern Territory.”

During the first six months of the operation police arrested 287 people in connection with 774 domestic violence offenses. Just in the last week 14 more people have been arrested for offenses including aggravated assault and breaching bail. Police say they will continue to work with family and community members to bring those responsible for domestic violence to justice.

It is not clear what brought this sudden aggressive action on domestic violence about. All we can say is, it’s about time.

Ending domestic abuse and sexual assault against women may be a pipe dream, but women need to learn how to defend themselves-which is reality.

Cold Weather Contributes To Domestic Violence

Share

Experts in the domestic violence field report that from November through January they get more incidents of domestic violence than any other time of the year. They credit a variety of factors including “tax returns, lay-offs, and other factors can stress many people out. Families gather during the holiday and winter, and with the cold weather, many are forced to stay indoors. This can cause aggression and fights.”

Read the rest of the story HERE.

Cold weather as contributing factor to domestic violence? Cold weather does not cause domestic violence. However, the cold weather can keep people from going outside. Families may be forced to talk about sensitive issues, and this can lead to domestic violence.

Reis says victims of family violence need to have an escape plan in case there is an emergency.

“Hide a bag at a friend’s house, or a trusted person’s house,” Reis advises. “You should put your birth certificate, driver’s license, check account number, spare set of keys and clothes in that bag. Many women come to our shelter in middle of the night without any of those things. Usually the victims come without shoes or in their pajamas, so you should have those things prepared.”

Domestic Violence-A Problem For Everyone

Share

That was the headline recently that 98% of adults in California believe that domestic violence can happen to anyone. Statistics of all kinds back that up. Domestic violence crosses all racial, ethnic, age, religious belief, social and economic barriers. We call it an “equal opportunity destroyer of lives.”

There are a wide variety of reasons why domestic violence is so under-reported in the first place. Among them are shame and fear of reprisal, not just from the spouse but you can include a spouse’s family as well. Until recently there was plenty of anecdotal evidence that showed reporting a domestic violence assault rarely got the attention that it deserved. So you can add that to the mix of the reasons why it wasn’t reported.

Fortunately law enforcement officers and courts have taken a more serious look at domestic violence for what it is-an assault.

When you look to the causes for domestic violence they are as varied as you can possibly get. Chief among them are economic conditions. Disagreements and arguments over finances in a family cause a great deal of stress, which frequently leads to physical confrontations including murder. Poverty, low education levels, social status and mental illness all follow suit as possible reasons or causes for domestic violence.

We still feel that domestic violence is a learned trait. Young men learn from their abusive fathers. They see that there are rarely any repercussions for the domestic violence and figure that it’s okay. That thinking and that pattern has to change.

Those are some of the reasons why domestic violence is so under-reported, some of the commonly accepted causes of this crime and how to prevent an assault on you in a domestic violence situation.

After all, we are talking about an assault which can and has led to serious injury, including death. You have a right to defend yourself in any way that you can.

One of the best ways to defend against assaults even domestic abuse assaults is with a self-defense product such as our WildFire Pepper Spray.

Male Title IX Campus Assault Backlash

Share

For years now women have filed federal complaints which claim that campus sexual assault investigators lack training and failed to adequately investigate facts of that assault. They also maintain that these felony assailants get too much leniency in their punishment.

Read the rest of the story HERE.

Now men are claiming that the investigations are biased in favor of the accusers. There is little doubt in anybody’s mind that the justice system on campus widely differs from the criminal justice system in existence for everyone else.

Colleges that receive federal financial support are required to report sexual assaults on campus every year.

Nearly 30% of all women in a four-year university will be assaulted in her time there. It is a well-documented fact that only 10 percent of all alleged campus assaults even get reported.

Young women at any University need to learn how to defend themselves with a self-defense course and then arm themselves and learn how to use a self-defense product such as pepper spray or stun gun. A pepper spray such as this one Stop Strap Spray can disable an assailant for as long as 45 minutes, giving you time to get away and seek help.

New Law Aimed At “Knockout Game”

Share

Last week we introduced you to the new “game” in town called the “knockout game.”

Now a pair of NY state Assemblymen introduced a bill that would mandate a minimum prison term for anyone convicted of aggravated assault related to the controversial “Knockout Game.”

Reports of “Knockout Game” attacks — in which someone sneaks up to a random person and tries to knock them unconscious with one blow to the head — have proliferated across the U.S. in recent months.

“‘Knockout’ is not a game. It is a violent and dangerous act,” said Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Union), who co-sponsored the legislation (A4549) with Assemblyman Ron Dancer (R-Ocean). “As legislators, we must ensure that our laws address the newest inceptions of violence with the harshest possible penalties.”

Still, some police officials have questioned recently whether the “Knockout Game” is actually real. They say the attacks may be nothing more than random assaults that have always occurred and that the “game” may simply be an urban myth.

Officials: More Work Needed On Campuses’ Sexual Assault Policies

Share

“Despite a 2012 law designed to standardize Connecticut colleges’ handling of sexual assaults on campus, victims are still not getting the help they need.

That’s the takeaway from an hours long hearing held Wednesday, during which four University of Connecticut students who are suing the school for its handling of their sexual assault complaints shared their stories with legislators.

The students reported a variety of problems, including a campus police officer telling one victim he didn’t believe her and another not finding the right channels to lodge a complaint, according to a CT News Junkie article.

But the issue does not affect UConn alone, according to a CT Mirror report. A report card released in 2012 by the Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services shows a variety of different reporting methods and education and training requirements at the state’s public and private colleges.”

Read the whole story HERE

“While most of the schools have greatly improved their approach to preventing and responding to sexual harassment and violence, CONNSACS recommends more be done and officials agree, the Mirror says.

Administrators in the Connecticut State University system are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss policies related to the issue. The CSU system includes the four state universities and 12 community colleges.”
