Non-Lethal Self-Defense

According to the F.B.I. Bureau of Crime Statistics [1], there are over 1,300,000 violent crimes reported every year in this country, and these include over 800,000 aggravated assaults, over 88,000 forcible rapes, and over 400,000 robberies. People often feel uneasy in public places, and with so much crime happening, many people are purchasing non-lethal self-defense products to have on hand just in case an unexpected situation comes up where they may need a little protective edge to prevent something worse from happening.

We can try to plan for everything, but we can be prepared for the unexpected? With so many different options out there it can be tough to determine exactly what the best fit is for us personally.  Let’s take a look at some of the options available.

Are Non-Lethal Self-Defense Products Effective?

If you don’t own a firearm or you own a gun, but it isn’t legal and/or practical to carry it with you, then you may want to consider another form of self-defense. You could take a martial arts or other self-defense course, if you have the time and money. If you don’t have the time or money, then investing in a non-lethal self-defense weapon is a more practical way to go.

Non-lethal weapons have proven to be highly effective in adverse situations. However, unless you know what kind of a weapon best suits your needs, how to use that weapon, and the legality of owning and using it where you live, then carrying a self-defense weapon could get you into trouble. So, while non-lethal self-defense is a great idea, and one that can protect you, do some research before you purchase a product.

Parting Words of Advice
The best way to avoid becoming the victim of violent crime is to carry a non-lethal self-defense weapon with you, be aware of your surroundings at all times, and don’t knowingly place yourself in situations or places where there is a high probability that something threatening could happening. By doing these things you can maximize your safety and the safety of those who are with you.
