I know some of you own GUNS but this is something to think about...
If you don't have a gun, here's a humane way to self defense.
A Church receptionist in a high risk area, was
concerned about robbery
when they counted the collection.
She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they
recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.
The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is
a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too
close to you and could overpower you.
The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the
hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and
it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would.
Keeping one at home, by the bed and camping might
be good for self defense.
Thought this was interesting and might be of use.
It's a tip given to students learning self defense for decades.
It can buy you time to get out and get help or call the police
Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake and mouse?
