Colorado Springs, Colorado (PressExposure) August 18, 2009 -- The recent spike of assaults on the citizens of Colorado Springs draws attention to the fact that self defense products can go a long way to protecting our men, women and even kids in this great town. No less than the Colorado Springs Police Department recommended that course of action yesterday.
Women are unfortunately the victims of 90% of all assault cases from date rape in college to street assaults to domestic violence-mostly women-just a fact! Self defense products like stun guns, personal alarms, pepper sprays and even Tasers are easy to use, effective and generally inexpensive.
They can help keep you safe in an assault, date rape, robbery, home invasion, domestic violence, carjacking or any situation where you are in danger.
Law enforcement officers carry handguns for the lethal choice but almost all carry Tasers now for the non lethal alternative. They also carry pepper sprays as well as batons. That is a testament to how well these self defense products work.
Maybe the recent crime spike is a glitch in the scheme of things. Maybe not! It just seems that for as little as $10-15 a 10% OC pepper spray or a 130 db alarm is a good insurance policy to have. Maybe you will never need it-I hope so!
In case you do it is nice to have. Make sure if you get one you know how to use it and practice using it especially stun guns and pepper sprays. Make self defense products your first line of defense in an assault situation.
Remember a self defense weapon is meant to give you time to get away from a dangerous situation. They are not meant to injure or maim-they just won't/can't do that.
Chances are if you are reading this that crime has touched your life in some way or you consider yourself at risk. Take the next step and do something to protect yourself! Your life and safety is worth far more than the cost of a stun gun or pepper spray.
