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.

Anything less invites tragedy. When it comes to self defense options millions choose to carry a handgun, however, many others are not comfortable owning a handgun and instead look to less than lethal options.

The best less than lethal alternative for basic home and personal security is pepper spray.

Pepper spray, or oleoresin capsicum (OC), is used by law enforcement and corrections agencies across the United States to help subdue and arrest dangerous, combative, violent, or uncooperative subjects in a wide variety of scenarios.

Self Defense Options Proven To Stop Violent Crime

Share

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.

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.

Sexual Assaults In The Military

Share

This is a story about Military Sexual Assaults and the scourge that it has on military personnel. According to the Women’s Bureau between 20% and 48% of all female veterans have been sexually assaulted.

This is been going on for a long time according to them but only recently as its severity been brought to the public’s attention.

In 2012 for example soldiers were 15 times more likely to be raped by a comrade than being killed by an enemy.

Two women U.S. senators are working to change that: Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Kirsten Gillibrand. We note with interest that no male senators joined the bandwagon. We feel certain that is just a coincidence. Gillibrand has criticized Pres. Obama for failing to issue stronger reforms to protect survivors of military sexual assault.

“According to the U.S. Defense Department, out of an estimated 26,000 sexual assaults in 2012, only 3,374 were reported. The low reporting rate is unsurprising – 60 percent of victims stated that they experienced consequences for coming forward and only 302 perpetrators were actually prosecuted.

These rates echo those of civilian rape; however, there is a strong argument that this is not a societal problem but a military problem.”

The rape differential in the military reveals that the military sexual assault rate is lower than the rate of civilian rape but higher than any other military crime. The recruiting process serves to weed out those with criminal records, yet this does not appear to hold true for rates of sexual assault.

One of the best ways that women can defend themselves against sexual assault is with a self-defense item that is nonlethal. They are legal just about everywhere and are an inexpensive, effective way to defend yourself against any type of assault.

We always recommend a product that can be carried on a keychain that way it is with you at all times.

Here’s another story about a Parking Lot Assault where teenage boy reported that he was jumped by a large group of people who punched him and stole his cell phone. The incident happened at theHeritage High School parking lot after a sporting event at the school. The victim said he was walking across the parking lot headed home when he saw a white SUV pull into the parking lot and drive in the opposite direction of where you was walking. The SUV contained several occupants.

They later jumped him and stole his android phone. Sheriff’s deputies were able to view footage from the school security cameras which backed up the victim’s account of events.

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.

Campus Sexual Assaults-A New Look

Share

This week in Washington DC a Department of Education panel continues negotiations over new regulations on sexual assaults on college campuses. You can read the whole story HERE.

At the heart of the discussion is a report which revealed that one in five women is sexually assaulted while in college. Some people claim it is more than that because so many assault are not reported.

The report also acknowledges what they call “the dynamics of college life” a euphemism for the availability of alcohol and the propensity for its irresponsible consumption which appears to fuel the problem of sexual assault. Nearly 70% of all reported cases involve the use of alcohol or drugs.

Many men operate with impunity in campus environments where drinking is part of almost every social activity.

Women must assume the responsibility to look after each other.

How To Defend Yourself Against A Sexual Assault

The best way to defend yourself against the sexual assault on campus or anywhere for that matter is with a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or stun gun. We specifically recommend a product that’s on a keychain because that way it’s more likely to be with you wherever you go.

Knockout Game Assaults-Best Defense

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.

What Is A Stun Gun?

Share

Back in the 1930’s a farmer in Iowa came up with a way to move his cattle along more efficiently. The cattle prod.

That was the birth of the stun gun. Way back then, it was big, ugly and produced 10,000 volts, but gosh how much electricity do you need to move a stupid cow?

Like many other things law enforcement agencies and the military saw uses for an electrified device to subdue assailants and control crowds.

Since then enterprising companies like Stun Master, Streetwise, Guard Dog, Cheetah and many others have worked diligently to meet the needs of private citizens to provide a nonlethal alternative for their self-defense.

Stun guns are handheld, usually battery-powered devices that can deliver an electric shock to an assailant. That electric charge causes the muscles to over work in such a fashion that it depletes the body of all blood sugars so the assailant has no energy left. They also interrupt the tiny neurological stimuli that controls muscle movement. It causes a loss of balance and disorientation.

The process takes a few seconds to work so the stronger the stun gun’s electrical charge the less time it will take for it to work. It uses high-voltage and low amperage so no long-lasting damage is done but it put an assailant down for 5 to 10 minutes giving you time to get away to seek safety.

A leading brand of stun devices are StunMaster Stun Guns. They also lead the way in technological improvements making innovative products at competitive prices. All of their products have a lifetime warranty. They make some of the smallest and most powerful stun guns in the marketplace today. They were one of the first manufacturers to utilize the disable pin wrist strap and develop a cell phone stun gun-just as examples.

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.

Domestic Violence On The Rise In Ozarks

Share

This is a story and video about Domestic Violence and how domestic violence cases are on the rise in Springfield, Missouri.

It describes the victim was in abusive marriage for 12 years and didn’t recognize how dangerous it was.

Police and community officials are trying to address this issue throughout the city and state. The number and severity of domestic violence cases has risen dramatically since 2012. We don’t know whether that is because there is an increase in reporting or whether the actual number of cases has increased. Either way police are seeing that increase.

Officials say that domestic violence is very pervasive in Springfield. What they don’t say is that it’s pervasive everywhere.

Women everywhere are faced with the possibility of sexual assaults at any time, any place. You would think a home is safer. Wrong! Domestic Violence presents nearly a 30% chance of a woman being sexually assaulted.

The best way that she can avoid that is to get a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or a stun gun. We actually recommend pepper sprays, especially ones that are on a KEYCHAIN because they will be with you all the time.
