Why Pepper Gel For Safety Is Your Best Bet

Share

“Pepper Gel is a stronger capsaicinoid concentration suspended in a sticky substance, rather than the liquid of regular pepper sprays. The gel can spray up to 20 feet and because the gel formula sticks like glue to the face of an assailant, it is less contaminating to the surrounding area, making it ideal for indoor use.”

The fact that it is stronger than most other sprays, has a more concentrated stream with a greater range and can be used indoors because it eliminates cross contamination all are reasons why pepper gel for safety is your best bet.

Pepper spray that is dispersed in a mist or fog can be affected by windy outdoor conditions. Indoors the risk of cross-contamination is huge simply because of the disbursement method. Pepper gel eliminates wind blow-back and cross-contamination. It is one of the few pepper sprays that is safe to be used indoors.

When someone gets targeted with a gel, it sticks to his face like glue. When the assailant tries to remove the gel from his face, he grinds it in, making the pain much worse.

Maybe that is why women, especially college age women, prefer pepper gel for safety by a huge margin over other pepper sprays.

Pepper spray continues to be the number one selling self-defense product worldwide. More law enforcement officers carry Sabre pepper sprays than any other brand.

Pepper Spray For Runners – How To Protect Yourself Outdoors

Winter seemed to last forever. It was a brutal season for many people around the country with record snowfalls in the east, southeast and northern states. Temperatures in many parts of the country hit all-time lows. The general malaise created by the weather caused countless cases of “cabin fever”. As temperatures heat up, so does the desire to get out and about. People of all ages return to the great outdoors and resume activities like running, walking and biking.

With this new found freedom comes the reality that danger could be lurking around the corner. Often exercise enthusiasts get so focused on the activity that they neglect the things going on around them. That’s when you become most susceptible to an attack. To counter, it is always best to run with a friend on a familiar and well-lit path.

The threat of a dog attack is also all too common. Over 5 million people are attacked and bitten by dogs every year. According to the CDC, every 75 seconds in the United States a dog bite occurs. Every day, over 1,000 people need require emergency care to treat these injuries. Wherever you go, whether it’s a city park or your neighborhood street, dogs can be a constant threat.

Women Joggers At Risk

This is a story from Australia where a sexual predator has been assaulting Women Joggers.

The perpetrator attacks from behind in the dark and has worn a hood in each incident.

“Officers are have increased patrols in the Newport and Yarraville areas after three women were grabbed from behind and indecently assaulted while jogging between 6am and 8am over the past two weeks.

All three were wearing headphones at the time and are aged between 20 and 30, police say.

Detective Sergeant Kerr said in each case the woman’s scream had scared the attacker off.

Police believe there may be other people out there who have been approached by this man.

Detective Sergeant Kerr encouraged women to keep jogging, but urged caution when jogging with headphones in.

Women are particularly vulnerable when they’re out jogging, walking or cycling because usually they are by themselves and are distracted which makes them perfect targets for perverts.

U.S. News & World Report College Rankings And Sexual Assaults on Campus

Share

Here is an op-ed piece on Campus Sexual Assaults and U.S. News & World Report college rankings.

Several weeks ago a question was raised about U.S. News & World Report college rankings and whether or not they should include campus sexual assaults.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings are a hugely influential factor in how millions of people make college decisions every year.

“Brian Kelly, the editor of U.S. News & World Report, just announced that U.S. News will not include campus sexual-assault data in it’s annual college ranking this year, despite pleas from 12 members of Congress, citing the “unreliable” and “inconsistent” nature of the data. Moreover, even if better data were available, U.S. News would not include sexual assault information because:

Campus safety is not among the factors that U.S. News believes is directly tied to academic quality.”

This decision upset millions of readers.

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.

Tips For Assault Prevention

Share

Here is an interesting story and video about a self-defense instructor who teaches Assault Avoidance Tips. The main thing that he teaches women in his class is to act fast not think. The reason for this is simple: when you’re in a life or death situation, reaction times are critical. A few seconds lost thinking about what to do instead of reacting may cost you your life.

He has some simple tactics and tips to keep women safe in any kind of situation

• “Wear a purse that goes across your body, not over your shoulder.
• Keep pepper spray or a small pocket knife on your keys, and hold them as though you’re ready to attack.
• Walk with your hand inside your purse, so you can grab that spray as fast as possible.
• Other simple weapons to keep in your purse: A screwdriver, scissors, or even a pencil.
• Walk with scissors dangling in your hands, no one will think anything but the potential attacker.
• Buy a small gun, one that can clip to your bra and aim for the groin area.”

Senator To Address Campus Sexual Assault Issue

Share

Sen. Claire McCaskill, Democrat from Missouri, led the way to change the way the military handles sexual assaults, is now turning attention to Campus Sexual Assaults. In a town hall meeting recently, she announced that sexual assaults are even more underreported in colleges than they are in the military.

“I’m looking at what college campuses are doing in terms of keeping statistics, doing an inventory of services offered, finding out how many young people know if there’s a safe space on their campus where they can report,” McCaskill said during a news conference after the event.

“Those are the kinds of things we’re doing now, and we’re looking at it across Missouri and then I’m going to ask my colleagues to try to do the same kind of thing in their states.”

She readily admits that she doesn’t know if there is anything that can be done at the federal level.

Among the many problems associated with campus sexual assaults are the facts: that as stated it is vastly underreported with fewer than one in 10 actually getting reported; that alcohol is involved in approximately 70% of all cases leading many women to not being able to remember what actually happened; the assailant is known to the victim in close to 90% of the cases because they are classmates frequently.

Colleges Working On Campus Sexual Assaults

Share

Here’s a story about a college that is attempting to improve Sexual Assault Procedures.

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act takes effect soon. It holds institutions of higher education responsible for the prevention of sexual violence, not just responding to it after assaults occur.

“It also establishes standard procedures for disciplining those found guilty, and requires greater transparency on sexual violence policy and procedures, not just about rape but also domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.”

This has been brought about because of the Obama administration’s task force on protecting students from sexual assault which comes out with his best practices study next month. This is in response to the growing number of female victims who have been sexually assaulted on campus and were completely unhappy with the way their institutions handled the matter.

In the past at many universities if there has been a complaint of sexual assault, the issue has been investigated by a group of peers in the University honor system. Many of these universities have an honor code that dates back to the mid-1800s. The only sanction is expulsion which for many students is way too severe. Therein lies the problem.

The victim should be encouraged to use of police and criminal justice system for a more thorough investigation and better resolution than a slap on the wrist.

The best way for women to protect themselves anywhere but especially on a college campus is with one of our pepper sprays. They can disable an assailant for as long as 45 minutes giving you time to get away and seek help.

We recommend this MaceTriple Action Spray that has a teargas component and a UV marking DYE along with a 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum.

Indian Women Fight Back With OC Spray

Share

Here is a story from the Boston Globe about Indian women fighting back with self-defense pepper sprays.

You can read the whole story HERE.

Indian women are taking the initiative these days in learning self-defense techniques and how to use pepper spray for their own self-defense instead of the long-standing tradition of relying on male relatives to accompany them for safety. According to the story women are now learning self-defense techniques and sales of pepper spray have jumped. One class has hundreds of women in it and teaches how to target assailants groins-ouch! They teach women how to use their hands and how to strike with enough force so that the assailant will be in pain for as long as three months.

With an increasing number of women studying at universities and working in offices, it is no longer practical for them to travel accompanied by a father, husband, or brother.

“I tell people we don’t want to wait for society to reform, for male attitudes to change, for the police to arrive and act, and for our fathers, brothers, and husbands to protect us. Instead, we must focus our efforts on making ourselves physically and mentally strong to hit back.”

One of the best ways that women can defend themselves is with a self-defense product is nonlethal such as pepper spray. Any one of our Keychain Pepper Sprays can help you in a dangerous situation.

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.

Teen Relationship Abuse

Share

This is an article about Teen Dating Violence and how parents can do a lot to protect their children from injury or death by knowing the signs and intervening when necessary.

“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are five types of dating abuse: physical, mental, emotional (control issues), sexual and financial. In studies, 1 in 10 teens reports being hit during a relationship and half of all teens surveyed say they know someone who is in an abusive relationship.

In the United States, 25 percent of high school girls have been abused. Only one-third of the teens report their abuser because of fear of exposure, because they are unaware of the laws or because they are ashamed. Teens in an abusive relationship are more likely to consider suicide and to abuse alcohol and other drugs. As with adults, teens face the risk of death at the hands of their abuser.”

Teens lack experience in what may be their first serious relationship, so they have trouble labeling this as abuse. They are influenced by their peers and struggling to become independent. They fear their parents may restrict the relationship so they don’t tell.

Parents need to be on the lookout because there are definite signs and they know their kids better than anyone else so are in the best position to see signs of problems.

Those signs are not always obvious. Worsening grades, emotional outbursts isolation from family and friends, self-deprecation, sudden privacy concerns and other signs point towards potential problems.

Teens need to learn how to defend themselves against the physical part 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.

Parking Lot Assault Victim Dies

Share

Two weeks ago a Pueblo, Colorado man was assaulted in a Safeway parking lot. It was reported late last week that he passed away. You can read the whole story HERE.

The incident happened in broad daylight in a relatively high traffic area. Police are still looking for suspects.

We often suggest pepper sprays, but for female self-defense and their personal safety and personal security the one product that we especially recommend, the one that is the best for men and women is a four-in-one stun device. It features a 4.5 million volt rechargeable stun tool, a personal alarm, a LED flashlight and an emergency strobe light. That is four ways you can protect yourself with this valuable product.

The fact that it’s rechargeable allows you to save money on batteries right off the bat. It also features the anti-theft wrist strap with disable pin. “If the wrist strap is pulled out the stun gun will not shock and an emergency siren will activate until the pin is replaced.” This prevents the stun device from being used against you should it be taken away in a confrontation.

Rate Of Sexual Assaults on Campus Must Decline

Share

This story from the Post-Gazette is an opinion piece about sexual assaults on college campuses.

You can read the whole story HERE.

The gist of the editorial is that parents have enough to worry about sending their daughter off to college without having to worry about whether or not she will be raped. And of course the young woman is in the same boat. She has plenty to be concerned about as well. But she shouldn’t have to worry about being sexually assaulted.

“A recent White House report revealed that a staggering one in five female students reported being the victim of a sexual assault. Worse, only one in eight student victims report the crime.”

Among other things alcohol plays a huge role in these sexual assaults. With the party atmosphere at most colleges, alcohol and drugs flow freely and young men entice young women to be part of the group and have some fun by drinking.

There is a new push by the White House and Pres. Barack Obama for change in the college culture. He is calling on young people in college to acknowledge sexual assault is unacceptable. He is forming a task force to develop recommendations to prevent the crime and then how to respond to it once it’s reported.

The feeling at the White House is if you want to solve the problem you need to find out why sexual assaults occur and then determine why so few are reported.

“No parent should ever fear for a child’s safety when he or she departs for college” so says Arne Duncan, Education Secretary.

Parking Lot Assaults And Safety Tips

Share

Here is a story and video about a Parking Lot Assault that occurred recently in the Salem area. The story also has some parking lot tips for residents.

According to the story, a woman was leaving the grocery store, putting her groceries in the car when a subject comes up from behind her grabs her and then pushes her to the ground and flees. According to police there have been 14 incidents of the similar nature in the last three months. Typically they happen in late afternoon or early evening.

Assaults in parking lots are so common these days that every chance we get we warn people about being vigilant after shopping. Obviously most victims are women, who are disturbed by a wide variety of distractions.

Parking Lot Safety Tips

• “When out and about, keep your head up and make eye contact with passersby. Walking with confidence can be a powerful deterrent to a would-be criminal.
• Know the area where you walk and have an escape route planned, such as to where you will run if you are attacked.
• Make a commotion and yell for help. Never be embarrassed to cause a ruckus to get the attention of others for assistance.
• You have a right to protect yourself from an attack. Don’t be afraid to defend yourself.
• Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Leave the situation and call for help.
• Be a good witness. Use all of your senses to gather information about the attacker. The more details you can provide to the police, the more likely it is we can apprehend the suspect.”

Assaults in parking lots are one of the most common places for them to occur because they’re usually remote and poorly lit. In this case, a self-defense product would’ve helped. The L’il Guy Stungun is nearly 8,000,000 volts of power.
