Pepper spray is the most popular non-lethal self defense option on the market today. So effective at stopping attackers that nearly all law enforcement agencies arm officers with it. Police officers are instructed to use pepper spray as the first line of defense. The effects of pepper spray are almost immediate and upon direct contact with the eyes, respiratory system and mucous membranes begin to wreak havoc on the human body. The eyes involuntarily close shut, uncontrollable coughing ensues, and an intense burning sensation to the skin are some of the intense effects. Pepper spray is non-lethal and effects will begin to lesson in 30 to 45 minutes.

Self Defense Options Proven To Stop Violent Crime

Bourbon Street is synonymous with fun, partying, and good times. Unfortunately, in recent weeks, this tourist magnet is making news for all the wrong reasons. Violent crime has locals and tourists alike taking notice. According to crimemappings.com the French Quarter has been a dangerous place to party, citing 13 assaults, 12 armed robberies in and around Bourbon Street during the second week of December. Throughout the month of December 2014, the area within a one-mile radius of Bourbon Street saw 61 Assaults and 36 Robberies!

Residents and workers are on alert because of the violent crime increase in the French Quarter. A group of locals are spreading awareness by hanging signs throughout the Quarter that read “Caution Walk in Large Groups – We Love NOPD – We Just Need More.” The signs are designed to warn of potential crime and to encourage people to enjoy the Quarter in the safety of a large group. This is excellent advice, as statistics show the likelihood of becoming a violent crime victim is drastically reduced when you’re accompanied by a group of 3 or more.

Unfortunately, many residents and workers don’t have the luxury of congregating in groups. A highly effective alternative includes personal protection items like Mace and Pepper spray. When used correctly, these non-lethal devices are proven to stop an aggressive attacker almost immediately. A blast of pepper spray to the face of an assailant goes to work within seconds. First, it causes the capillaries in the eyes to swell – this causes temporary blindness. The threat posed by an attacker who can’t see is greatly reduced. Respiratory inflammation and difficulty breathing help to take the “fight” out of a potential attacker. Mace or pepper spray hurts. The pain to the eyes has been described as “excruciating” and left untreated the effects last about 30 minutes. Self-defense sprays allow users the ability to stop a potential threat quickly and safely from a distance of 8 feet or more.

Popular Self Defense Items for Women

One of the most overlooked self defense items for women is this PAL keychain alarm with light. It is one of the most popular personal alarms, a.k.a. panic alarms, for women. It combines the two best deterrents against an attack: 130 dB ear piercing alarm and a bright flashing light. You can activate the alarm in two ways; first when the pin attached to the keychain is pulled, and second by pressing the alarm button on the top of the unit.

PAL 130
Personal alarms are effective self-defense items for women because they can alert people in your area that you may be in trouble and/or scare a potential assailant away. This particular panic alarm uses two AAA batteries that come with the unit and it is so small that it attaches to your keys easily.

Another inexpensive self-defense items for women is this Pepper Shot 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum rated at 2 million Scoville heat units keychain pepper spray. It contains 10 half-second shots up to 10 feet away and represents one of the best values in self-defense items for women. It has a thumb lock safety actuator to prevent accidental discharge and includes a UV marking dye for assailant identification.

What Are The Most Powerful Stun Guns?

Share

What are the most powerful stun guns? Of the thousands of stun guns in the marketplace today from hundreds of different manufacturers around the world, several of them stand out as being the most powerful. The Streetwise “small fry” has 11 million volts while the “SamStun” model cell stun gun has 6 million volts. A Stun Master product called the “runt”, has 20 million volts which makes it one of the most powerful stun guns.

As recently as ten years ago, a stun gun that had 1,000,000 volts was considered to be a powerful stun gun. Today you can still find stun guns with 1,000,000 volts and they are still effective. But due to advances in technology and demands of customers it is not uncommon today to find stun guns consistently in the 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 volt range and indeed much more powerful stun guns.

With acts of violence against women an ever-increasing threat, stun gun manufacturers like Streetwise, Stun Master, Guard Dog and others have made huge strides in developing smaller, more powerful stun guns. And believe it or not they are actually cheaper than they were even five years ago.

Stun Master brand has been making stun guns for the last 30 years and this 20,000,000 volt model called the “runt” is one of the most powerful stun guns as of this writing. It is rechargeable with a built-in slide out charger is only 3 ½ inches tall and 2 inches wide which is why it is called the “runt.”

Like all other Stun Master products it has a lifetime warranty. It has the popular disable pin wrist strap which when used properly disables the stun gun should be taken away from you in a struggle. As a bonus it has a built-in 120 lumen LED flashlight.

Technology is changing all the time and what is the most powerful stun gun today may be out gunned tomorrow.

Sexual Assaults On Campus-Most Involve Drugs Or Alcohol

Share

Here’s a story about campus Sexual Assaults where US representative Pat Meehan R-Delaware, convened regional experts on campus safety last month to discuss the issue and come up with policy recommendations on how to narrow the gap between the number of actually assaulted women and the number who choose to report it.

Nearly 20 percent of women attending college are sexually assaulted or victims of an attempted assault, yet only between 5 and 12 percent of them report the attacks.

“That gap is staggering,” he said. “That amount of victims is eye-opening. We have a responsibility to work collaboratively to assure that we not only prevent future sexual assault in an environment like a college setting, but we are able to respond more effectively to those victims.”
Many women are under the influence when the attacks occur, he said, resulting in “incapacitated assault.”

“Incapacitated assault means that there has been alcohol, drugs, some other kind of agent that may have influenced the ability of parties to be appropriately responsive,” Meehan said Monday.

It has been estimated that as much as 70% of all sexual assaults on college campuses involved drugs or alcohol or both.

We recommend that young women everywhere, but especially on a college campus, carry a self-defense product with them. Products that are on keychains are best because they’re more likely to be with you at all times.

Two of the most popular models are this Mace Triple Action (shoiwn above) and this Sabre Keychain Model. (shown below)

Pepper sprays can incapacitate an assailant for as long as 45 minutes and are legal everywhere with a few cities and states having some restrictions.

Female self-defense should be on the minds of every husband or boyfriend for their loved ones. Part of the reason for that is because women are assaulted approximately 9 times more often than men.

One of the best ways to improve female self-defense is with products such as stun guns or pepper sprays. They provide a nonlethal means for self-defense.

There are literally thousands of self-defense items in the market today which makes it difficult to figure out which ones might be the best for you. In this article we are going to make some suggestions for the top three best products for women.

These products provide a less than lethal alternative to handguns for self-defense. Generally speaking, they immobilize an assailant long enough for the victim to escape a potentially dangerous situation and get help.

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.

Domestic Violence, Drugs And Alcohol

Share

This is a story about Domestic Violence specifically in an area south west of Colorado Springs in the mountains. Domestic violence, in the Colorado Domestic Violence Benchbook, is defined as “one partner’s effort to control the other partner using a variety of tactics that may involve both criminal or non-criminal acts.” Such acts can include assault, arson, murder, burglary, kidnapping, threats and stalking.

Domestic violence behaviors include verbal harassment or criminal mischief, for example when a suspect tears up a house or destroys property.

“Ninety-five percent of domestic violence cases involve the use of drugs or alcohol. We also handle more domestic violence cases in winter, probably because people are confined. Plus, often domestic violence stems from financial issues. In the winter, some people are working less or not at all.”

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.

About one in three teens will be emotionally, verbally, physically or sexually abused by a dating partner. Even if this never happens to the teen in your life, it’s likely they’ll know someone in an abusive relationship.

If teens would respect themselves and their partner, treat each other as equals, show trust rather than jealousy, resolve conflicts with open communication and not violence, allow for personal space and respect each other’s boundaries they would be much safer .

Young women need to learn how to defend themselves with a self-defense course like Small Man’s Advantage and then arm themselves and learn how to use a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or stun gun.

Knockout Game Zeroes In On Elderly

Share

Law enforcement officials in Dallas, Texas are investigating several attacks on men over 65 that they believe are part of the nationwide game called the ‘knockout game.’

Read the whole story HERE.

One of the victims was punched in the parking lot of a Denny’s restaurant will another occurred outside Campisi’s.

The purpose of the knockout game is to attack someone and knock them out in one punch. They are completely random and can happen during daylight or evening hours. They started in New York about three weeks ago as the knockout game but a variation of this is been around for two decades.

“The FBI describes the “knockout game” as an assault with the aim to incapacitate an unsuspecting victim with one punch. The disturbing trend dates back to 1992. Although victims are usually selected on the basis of race, age seems to be a common theme as well.”

Police note that this is not a “game” and that perpetrators can be charged with a federal hate crime which elevates the seriousness of the assault. The attacks occur with such speed that victims often are not able to identify their assailants. This forces police to rely on witnesses which are few and far between.

We always recommend that women especially carry a self-defense product with them wherever they go. If they get something that’s on a keychain like this Fox Pepper Spray is much more likely to be with them when they need it.

Aussie Domestic Violence Crackdown

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.

What Are Dog Owner’s Responsibilities In An Attack?

Share

Here’s a letter to the editor that was published in the Baltimore Sun recently about dog attacks. It focuses on dog owner’s responsibilities not dog owner’s rights.

Read the whole story HERE.

The author is the mother of a boy who was attacked six years ago by a pitbull and who’s case led to a decision by a Maryland court that pit bulls are inherently dangerous.

She asks these questions in her letter.

1. “How will dog owners pay for catastrophic injuries caused by their dogs? Homeowners insurance is not required by law, it is required of homeowners by mortgage lenders. Renters can go uninsured.

2. The animal advocates say the largest portion of their shelter space is pit bulls and the greater share of their placement in foster homes are to renters. Any new law must consider the feasibility of a victim being able to gain a recovery.

3. Returning to common law with pit bulls and other dogs means a dog bite victim must prove negligence. The animal lobby says dog behavior is the dog owner’s fault, so then a dog bite itself should be evidence of negligence. Like them or not, muzzles are always available to dog owners, or they can choose a less dangerous breed to mitigate the risk of bites.”

Every year over 5 million Americans are attacked by a dog and bitten. Of those nearly 1,000,000 require hospitalization with the vast majority of them being children.

The best thing is to avoid dogs altogether. Unfortunately for millions of Americans who love to get their exercise in the great outdoors by walking, jogging or cycling that just doesn’t seem feasible. The second best thing to do is to arm yourself with a self-defense product that can protect you against a dog attack and prevent you from getting bitten.

We have found that this Sabre Dog Pepper Spray has an effective range up to 15 feet and will improve your confidence and peace of mind while walking outdoors.

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.

Batons-Types and Styles

Share

The origins of batons goes back to the mid-1800s. They are less than arm’s-length products that are made of wood, rubber, plastic or metal. According to Wikipedia they are “used for forced compliance and self-defense by law enforcement officers, correctional staff, security industry employees and military police.”

In today’s blog post we will discuss the various types of batons used by civilians for self-defense.

They basically fall into two categories: electrified and non-electrified. There are some subcategories in the non-electrified versions such as expandable and non-expandable.

Electrified Baton stun devices usually have a flashlight included with them which gives them added utility as a self-defense product. There is one model that has expanding capabilities and is an effective tool against dog attacks.

click image for more details

Non-electrified batons are either a fixed length or expanding. Some models go up to as much as 26 Inches when fully extended.

In the non-electrified category an unusual type is the kubotan or keychain baton which is a “close-quarters weapon with an attachment for a keychain.” It is 5.5 inches long and can appear to be an innocuous appendage to a keychain.

The best uses of this self-defense tool are as “a flailing weapon, to gain leverage on joints, wrist and fingers or as a pressure point weapon which can inflict submission-type pain when applied effectively.”

Most fixed length batons come up to two feet making it easier to handle.

Another example of non-electrified batons are fixed batons referring to the length of the baton.

Handles for these less-lethal self-defense weapons are made out of rubber, some of foam or wood.

Whatever model you get, they can be an effective self-defense weapon.
