Self Defense Product Options When A Handgun Won’t Work

Share

If you’re like countless others, personal security is a major concern, yet owning a handgun is not an option. You’re not alone, gun ownership is a huge responsibility that many are unwilling to make. The consequences of pulling the trigger in self-defense can be life changing. If this describes you, then what are your choices?

You have the right and responsibility create a safe environment for yourself and family. Crime is all around us, burglary, assault, rape, murder and home invasion are some of the most prevalent. Plenty of people are turning to non-lethal self defense products. These products are proven effective, yet the effects are temporary and cause no long term harm.

The most popular option is pepper spray or Mace. This inexpensive self defense spray is extremely effective at stopping an aggressive attacker. Capsaicin is the active ingredient which is derived from the extraction of oleoresin capsicum from peppers. A shot of pepper spray in the eyes, nose or mouth goes to work instantly to cause pain, trouble breathing, and temporary blindness. Pepper spray products offer varying effective ranges from about 6 feet to over 20 feet.

Stun guns and Tasers provide knock down power, require no license to own and operate, and are compact in size, making them convenient to carry. In addition, most units have built in LED flashlights that come in handy when trying to locate your keys or open a door. Stun guns are equipped with safety features that greatly reduce the chances of accidental firing. Numerous studies point to the overall safety of stun devices. Taser International alone has spent $4.5 million dollars over the last 5 years for medical research to ensure the safe use of stun devices.

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.

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.”

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.

Dog Attacks-New Opinion

Share

Here is an editorial written by a concerned citizen about her observations in people’s attitudes when out walking dogs, riding their bikes or just out through daily exercise.

You can read the whole opinion piece HERE.

Her observations are that people are arming themselves with pepper spray, sticks, stun guns, wasp spray or anything else they can use if there dog was attacked by an aggressive dog or if they are attacked.

The fact is, there is no excuse for a dog to be aggressive. An aggressive dog is an aggressive dog, period; end of story. It’s like going to any self-help group and taking the first step by admitting that you have a problem. That done, the next step is getting help, and there is help for you and your aggressive dog.

“The number one thing any dog owner must do is keep your dog on a leash! This goes for every dog, friendly or not. This is for their safety and yours, as well as the community. There is a leash law and for good reason; please adhere to it for the safety of all involved. I will admit that I have been remiss at times with my own dogs on this, but have amended my ways with a renewed, and vigilant attitude.

Let me say again that there are no excuses for an aggressive dog. You can’t take back the damage that your dog has done after the fact. There is documented proof that the dog who is the victim of a dog attack will become dog aggressive themselves for survival sake. I can’t blame them but this can become a snowball effect, with our beautiful and safe community to take the brunt of it. Take responsibility for your dog by being a responsible owner.”

In the United States over 5 million people are attacked by dogs every year and 1 million of them need treatment at a hospital. That equates to a huge cost, both in time and money. Insurance companies are going crazy paying out claims against homeowners. But the biggest thing is that people are afraid of dogs and for good reason.

They hesitate to go out walking, cycling or jogging anymore because of the fear of dog attacks. But it needn’t be that way if they arm themselves with a good self-defense product such as the Mace Pepper Gun or the Sabre Protector Dog Spray.

The Los Angeles times recently did a story about occidental colleges’ deliberate under reporting of sexual assaults on campus.

Read the Los Angeles Times article HERE.

The tiny Los Angeles College has been the center of a firestorm revolving around sexual assaults on college campuses. In October the college said it failed to disclose two dozen sexual assaults made by students in 2010 and 2011. College officials claim that was a complete accounting of assault cases. The Los Angeles Times review found close to 30 additional sexual assault allegations made 2012 that were not disclosed and dozens more ignored by the Dean of students office since 2009.

Sexual assaults on college campuses are near epidemic proportions across the country with close to one in every three women the victim at some point her four year stay at a University or College.

The best way for women to defend themselves is with a self-defense product such as a stun gun or pepper spray. Sabre Pepper Spray has a keychain attachment so it is more likely to be found in a deep purse.

Most Effective Non-Lethal Self Defense Products For Women

Share

There is a reason why self defense product manufacturers such as Mace, Taser International, Stun Master, Sabre and many others make products that appeal to women. You’ll find just about every manufacturer makes pepper sprays or stun devices that come in many colors-pink is always one of them. They also make products that are lighter, smaller and easier to carry specifically for women. Why is that?

Women are the targets of attacks in nine out of every 10 cases so they use a self defense product much more often than men. In this article we will discuss the most effective self defense products for women so you can see which ones women prefer for their personal safety and personal security based on their effectiveness.

This Sabre Stop Strap Spray uses the famous Sabre Red formula with 2 million Scoville heat units and .67 major capsaicinoids concentration which is more than most sprays and which makes it hotter. The stop strap technology prevents the use of the spray if it is taken away from you. You place the stop strap safety device around your wrist and hold the unit in your hand. If the spray is separated from the strap in a confrontation, it will not spray. This is a safety feature women love.

The second favorite self defense product for women is the Expandable Steel Baton that is 7 inches when it’s closed and 16 inches when it’s opened with a simple flick of the wrist. Once opened it locks into position. These are police grade steel batons that are descendants of the old wooden billy clubs police officers used to carry. Batons are an inexpensive, effective way to defend yourself against any kind of an assault. They can be used to strike or jab at an opponent with devastating results. If you’ve ever hit your shin on the bed post, you know the pain that we’re talking about.

And the third favorite self defense product is the tiny SMACK Stun Gun that has a key chain attachment. It is only 3 ½ inches tall and ¼ inches wide but is 5,000,000 volts of stopping power. It is a perfect marriage of technology and innovation, and as far as we know it’s the only stun gun that has a key chain attachment. It has two levels of safety built-in and has a lifetime warranty which attests to its quality.

Those are the top three most effective self-defense products for women for their personal safety and personal security.

Bears Are Getting Ready For Hibernation-With Your Food

Share

With the recent bear attacks around British Columbia come warnings that at this time of year the animals are trying to fatten up for their dormant winter months.

In Whistler on Sunday, a black bear had to be destroyed after it got into a home and knocked down a resident.

In another incident, a grizzly bear badly mauled a hunter in the northeastern town of Hudson’s Hope, a tiny community about 100 kilometres west of Fort St. John.

In both cases the bear was trying to access human food.

The rest of the story is HERE.

“We are coming in to the highest conflict time of the year,” said Whistler’s Sylvia Dolson, the executive director of the Get Bear Smart Society.

Dolson said as the bears try to bulk up for winter, they will come down from the mountains looking for an easy food source.

“The real critical thing is bears will go after household garbage, bird seed, pet food, fruit trees and when there is a human food source, that is when the trouble starts,” she said.

The shooting of the black bear in Whistler happened after the bear entered a home in Whistler Kay Heights and then became trapped inside. It caused considerable damage and knocked one of the residents down as it tried to get it out.

“Once they get into a house they can do quite a bit of damage,” added Dolson.

“The worst is when they figure out that food is in the home,” she said. “When they know the food is in there it is a huge problem.”

She said a black bear at this time of year is foraging to fill up on about 20,000 calories a day.

“At this point they are in an exaggerated eating mode,” she said.

This summer, a black bear had to be killed in Whistler in July, and Dolson said the number is low because the bears had a good food sources higher up in the mountains.

Always carry the most Powerful Bear Spray available with you whenever you go into the backcountry. Even the Sierra Club endorses the use of bear pepper spray. It has been proven to be much more effective than even a handgun. A bear wounded by a handgun can become even more dangerous. Whereas a bear that walks into a fog of bear spray will make a hasty retreat.

Four Of The Most Powerful and Reliable Stun Guns

Share

Stun devices are consistently one of the most popular self-defense tools sold in the country. We’re not talking about tasers, which are really in a separate category, but regular stun devices that have probes on one end and are battery or rechargeable technology powered.

Swarthmore Student Again In Campus Sex-Assault Dispute

Share

A Swarthmore College junior already at the center of a nationally publicized row over how the elite suburban liberal-arts school deals with sexual-assault cases is embroiled in a new controversy – also over the explosive issue of rape on campus.

Swarthmore officials say they removed Mia Ferguson, 19, this week from her new job as a dormitory resident adviser, or RA, because she would not divulge the name of a rape victim whose alleged attacker still lives on the Delaware County campus.

You can read the whole story HERE.

Ferguson insists that she is under no such obligation and that Swarthmore’s move is a case of retaliation. She is one of two students behind last spring’s federal complaint that the school has been lax in investigating and reporting sexual-assault cases, an allegation that has roiled the leafy campus.

Now, said Ferguson, an engineering major, the college is using the Title IX requirement against her, insisting that she should have reported the alleged rape victim’s name after a two-year-old allegation was brought up again during her training to become a resident adviser earlier this month.

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