Knowing that around the world crime is getting rampant, plus the fact that it could happen any moment can be very worrying for some of us. It’s because of this that people are scared and distressed, knowing that somewhere along the road they might encounter situations that will put them in danger. The crime rates on just about every country in the world seem to undergo a fluctuation, which means that something bad can happen all of a sudden, and this statistic can really be disturbing.
Even those in the safety and comforts of their homes are no exemption to crimes, such as invasion, theft or even murder that can happen no matter the time and place. Therefore, it is important for people to acquire a few measures of self- defense tools in order to provide themselves, their loved ones and relatives the necessary protection to avoid any unfortunate events from taking place. There are many tools which can be used to stop a crime from ever happening, and some of these tools are provided below.
Number 1. Everyday Items – in reality there are a lot of things we can find lying around the house that can be used to disable attacker whenever the situation is suitable. In fact, even something simple as a couple of keys in a person’s pocket would be sufficient to stop criminals on their tracks. Placing the key on open palms, slipped out between the gap of your two fingers, then closing them in to a tight fist. As substitute for knuckles, this might be very painful, but it might grant you some time to escape, because this ensures that it will send the criminals bleeding. Even a pen is very useful since it can be used as a puncturing device that will be painful as well. A cell phone is also effective, although those who cherish just how expensive their smart phones are would probably be too dumb to even think of such an idea.
Number 2. Stun Gun – a device that is safe for use. It will not incapacitate anyone to the point of death, since it only discharges right around 0.0003 amps, a rather low current. Any higher than that, and there’s a risk that someone might get killed, since it can cause cessations in breathing, and would most likely induce problems with heart beats. If ever you killed him, this will not be charged against you as murder, but it is an act of self-defense.
Number 3. Pepper spray – with one canister you can daze quite a few criminals that has harmful intentions. When used, it can disperse a chemical which can cause short-term blindness to the assailant, irritating their eyes and leaving them unable to defend themselves. Pepper sprays are very handy, and like stun guns they are as popular, and also non-lethal. For ordinary citizens, these are effective and helpful tools that can be used in self- defense. We are all praying and hoping for the safety and peace of ourselves and our beloved, but in our day and age, these are things are quite inevitable, there are people who are willing to hurt anyone just for personal gain. Being alert in any situation, whether in daylight or not, will save you a lot of pain. Walking to your car on an empty ally, you should always look around for anything suspicious. If anyone is stalking you, the aforementioned action, will let them know that you will not be an easy target! If this is the case, they will more than likely move on, due to the fact that the element of surprise is no longer available to them.
