Wasp Spray, Stun Guns, and Other Self Defense Nonsense

One thing that makes us the most vulnerable is our search for someone or something, besides ourselves, to provide “safety”. Obviously, we should expect our society to provide a measure of civility and security.

The problem arises when we are lulled into a false sense of security and think that someone or something is going to protect us.

I am constantly amazed at how many people want a gadget, a tool, a law, or a cop to provide that security. While important and valid, those things are not a replacement for preparing oneself for that task. You are your own first responder.

Regarding this “security” topic, most people bathe happily in the glow of unconscious incompetence. It is taken at face value that if you ban this or that, or if a new law was only in place, or if you get an app on your phone that you can push a button and instantly alert the police, or get some wasp spray or a stun gun to disable an attacker, or how about something on my key chain like a whistle or an impact device….blah, blah, blah. The “experts”
will preach it and the individual looking for that “safety” will never question it in depth.

Here is my truth. The only way to defeat violence is with greater violence, and if you don’t understand that then you have no chance. Not a single F@&K will be given if you don’t believe this law of nature. You either accept it and TRAIN, or perish if faced with this ugly reality.

Regarding the BS tips, I have posted links to videos below to show why certain tools do not work.




The “experts” that recommend this kind of nonsense are actually putting people at much greater risk. Imagine thinking that you have an appropriate force multiplier to use against a threat only to have it completely fail and simply anger the attacker more.

I also see people that want to become an instructor but have absolutely no background in real fighting. You want to take a weekend course with an “instructor” that did the same thing to become an instructor. You memorize the language and are convincing, articulate, and you might even look the part. Maybe you were in the “military” or “law enforcement” Yea, ok, but can you fight? Can you teach someone to fight? Do you realize it is about principals and not about some magic technique you can learn over the weekend. 
It is blatant fraud and immoral because you are putting people at greater risk.
