Defense Against Crime


What are you going to do?


Only a complete idiot would claim that having a weapon or device for their protection such as a gun, knife, stun gun or pepper spray – is THE solution to all your protective needs. There are many gun owners who are robbed or killed each year. On the other hand it would be just as dumb to think that personal protection devices are of very little value. There are thousands of people who are not victims because they had the right tools at the right time along with the right knowledge to prevent themselves from being victims.

There are a number of variables that come into play such as

  • Will you know how to use it properly under stress?
  •  Will you have it when you need it?
  •  Can you access it quickly?
  •  Do you know how to use it effectively?
  •  Do you have other self defense knowledge?
  •  Are you prepared to do what it takes to save your life or your family’s life?

 The real question is, if you do not do something to prepare NOW, what will you do and when are you going to do it…? Start to protect yourself and your loved ones now!

Lots of my customers have asked me which the best protection product is for them. What are the advantages getting pepper spray?  How  do you use Pepper Spray? Which Stun Gun is best for me? What other things should I be doing? I’m not going to discuss any of it in this blog article, but I would invite you to subscribe to my blog and read and share my posts with your friends.

Are you prepared?

Are you prepared?

  1. Great post, I think a lot of people can benefit from information by being prepared and having some sort of protection. Pepper sprays, stun guns and tasers are all effective personal protection devices when used properly.

  2. One statistic that never seems to go down, is the crime rate, particularly data involving violent crimes that result in robbery, rape, injuries and deaths. You tend to want to believe that most of these kinds of crimes happen mostly in the big cities. Sure, New York City has more than 100,000 felonies registered per year – and thousands of others that aren’t reported. But how many times in recent years have you read about horrible crimes in small town America? And the quote that always seems to accompany the articles reporting the crimes includes the comment: “I never believed that this kind of thing could happen in our peaceful little town.”

    The average person is not expected to be able to fight off an attacker, particularly if the element of surprise is involved. But there are some things everyone can do to help protect themselves, perhaps diminish the severity of the situation, and maybe even frustrate – or even subdue – the would-be attacker.

    One of the things that could save you is an item called the pretender-cellphone-stun-gun. As the name suggests, it looks like a camera cell phone. But it packs the punch of a 950,000 volt stun gun. Blast the perp with a shot from this “phone” and he will be stopped dead in his tracks. And the idea is that you should be able to fool the attacker because it looks exactly like a phone. But you may not always have the chance to utilize this device, even if you have it. If you do find yourself in a situation where someone obviously intends to do harm, try to stay calm. I know, easier said than done, but a clear head can help you plan your defense.

    If you can talk with the person, take an assertive tone. Try to distract the would-be attacker and gain some time. If there is an opening to run, do so if you can, and scream as loud as you can. Try to find a place to hide. Of course, if the intruder threatens you with a deadly weapon immediately, then that changes the dynamics. You have to make some decisions on what you are going to do. If you have a pretender-cellphone-stun-gun, of course, you should attempt to use it if you can. One way is to pull it out and threaten to call the police; the attacker no doubt will come close and attempt to take it from you; that’s when you blast him.

    If you don’t have the protective device, you have to take a lot of things into mind. What are your physical capabilities, the location of the attack, the practical odds of success in trying to defend yourself. There just are no hard and fast rules.
    Your best bet may be to look for an opportunity a little later. And who knows, someone just might come along and scare the perpetrator away.

    None of those suggestions are too comforting, to be sure, but some things you should think about before even getting into that situation, include try not to ever be walking alone in any known high crime areas. And if you have to, be sure to walk with a purposeful, confident stride. Many crimes occur when people are getting into their cars. First you don’t want to park in suspicious areas if it can be avoided. Try to park in well-lit areas and near open businesses if at all possible. Walk toward your car with the keys in your hand. Get into the car quickly and lock the doors immediately.

    In any of these potentially dangerous situations, keep the pretender-cellphone-stun-gun in your hand at all times or place your hand in your pocket and hold onto it. Should an attacker push his way into your car, you are in a position to give him the full force of the defense device. If you are ever attacked and you survive it, be certain to report it to the police immediately. You would be surprised how many people do not, for various reasons. And tell all you know; sometimes the most incidental facts are important.
