  • The Taser® C2 Will Soon Be Replaced By The Taser® Bolt

    c2_logo_raster_png

    Updated 06-17-2016

    Yes, Taser® C2s are going away as stock is sold out, however your C2 will still have parts available, because the new Taser® Bolt uses the same Cartridges, Batteries, and Holster size. The owners manual is the same and when I compared the product specifications, they are the same. All of the below information still applies.

    You may have heard of the Taser®, because many police departments issue each officer one to carry on duty.  I worked at a California police department for 40 years and when the Taser® became available, we were one of the first departments to issue them.  They became an addition to tools we already carry, including pepper spray and as an alternative to using our firearm. They continue to save a number of injuries and lives of officers and suspects with no lasting harmful effects. But you may have questions about the Taser® C2 and Bolt, because they were designed for the citizen to use.

    In police studies, the TASER® C2/Bolt has a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun.  The TASER® C2/Bolt shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible takedown power.

    (Taser C2 Red Shown)

    The Taser C2/Bolt have a slick design and are much easier to carry. They have the same stopping power as the police models and still combine a traditional stun gun with the ability to shoot and shock an attacker up to fifteen feet away. When an attacker is struck with Taser C2/Bolt darts, they are designed to continue to shock the suspect for 30 seconds.

    Only use the Taser® C2/Bolt as a defense weapon. It is recommended that when you shoot the Taser Darts and the shock affects the attacker, you drop the Taser and run away. The cycle energy burst will continue for 30 seconds, giving you ample time to get away.  If the Taser is lost as the result of leaving it behind, don't worry. Forward a Police Report, documenting the incident, and Taser Iternational will replace your Taser C2/Bolt Unit.

     SAFETY -- The TASER® C2/Bolt can stop a threat up to 15 feet away (4.5 meters), allowing you a safe distance to protect yourself and family from an attacker.  If a close quarter defense is warranted, the C2/Bolt doubles as a contact stun device to repel someone as a powerful and unexpected backup capability.  TASER® technology has proven itself as a safe and effective choice of self-defense with over 500,000 worldwide users.

    EFFECTIVE -- A TASER® C2/Bolt can be conveniently discharged to work anywhere on the body, unlike other conventional weapons with a specified target area.  This makes the TASER® C2/Bolt more effective self-defense option by making it easier to stop a threat under an already stressful situation. TASER® devices have been used effectively by law enforcement encounters by over 10,000 police agencies in over 4 countries, boasting a 95% effective rating.  TASER® technology provides one of the only non-lethal means of stopping an attacker dead in his tracks, even if under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

    RESPONSIBILITY -- Normal law-abiding citizens carrying a TASER® C2/Bolt for self-defense purposes should have no problem acquiring this highly effective tool.  However, to further promote responsible ownership, the TASER®.  As always, purchasers MUST be 18 years old or older.

    The Taser C2/Bolt ECD has the same stopping power as police models. The C2/Bolt ECD uses the same exact technology and offers the same stopping power as the police version. The only difference is the cycle time - C2/Bolt ECD relays the charge for 30 seconds compared to 5 seconds with the police version. This is so you can keep your attacker down and get yourself to safety. C2/Bolt ECD is also designed to fit your lifestyle - lightweight, compact, and easy to carry".

    There is more information you will want to know about the Taser C2/Bolt. Please follow the instructions below for written information, videos, and how to purchase.

    Be sure to watch the four short videos by clicking HERE.  The first video is a Taser C2 Demo.  The volunteers in this video are actually being shocked by the Taser C2. There are people placed to the side of each volunteer to keep them from falling down.

    In my opinion, the Taser C2/Bolt is one of the best self protection products out there. I highly recomend them.

  • Serial Killers In Our Backyard

     

    For_Security_Sake_Shield

    In 1984 I was a detective investigating crimes against persons. By 1987, I was A Police Patrol Sergeant in in A San Joaquin County California city named Manteca. I can remember a number of missing person reports in between those years. While we receive missing person reports often, these suspicious ones were all from the San Joaquin County Valley, California and north county detectives had leads that pointed to murder of a few of them. Our area had a low crime rate and serial killers in our backyard were not the first thought that came to mind.

    Detectives focused on two suspects;  Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog. These two suspects were local boyhood friends and as they grew older became involved with drugs. As the investigation continued into 1999, evidenced showed they were into methamphetamine and when their murder arrests occurred, these two suspects were named by the media as the "Speed Freak killers". It is believed that the two friends went on a 20 year killing spree, with most of the victims coming from our backyard area (San Joaquin County California). These killers were able to talk victims (friends and strangers) into going with them willingly, never to be seen alive again.

    After some diligent detective work, these two killers were arrested and brought to trial. Both were convicted and received what was thought to be justice for once. Shermantine was sentenced to death and currently is in prison death row. Herzog received a 78 year sentence that was overturned by the court of appeals after he served fourteen years. In 2010 Herzog was released on parole and was living in a trailer outside of the prison gates in Lassen County, California.

    That didn't sit well with Shermantine who was now 45 years old. Shermantine blamed the killings on Herzog, with Shermantine admitting to help dispose of the bodies. He began to hint that he would rat out his friend by showing where some of the bodies were. A Sacramento, California bounty hunter offered Shermintine money reported to be between $15,000 and $30,000 to disclose body locations. The bounty hunter also contacted Herzog with that information. A few days later Herzog committed suicide, at the age of 46.

    February 2012, after some law enforcement bickering from the San Joaquin County Sherriff about jurisdiction issues, Shermantine drew maps that led to at least four different areas that he said bodies are located. So far remains have been found on former Shermintine family property, and a capped well in San Joaquin County. It is reported that these two serial killers could be responsible for more than 30 murders. As of February 15, 2012 the San Joaquin county sheriff has received more than 65 phone calls hoping they can find closure with the location of missing loved ones.

    This was shocking to all living in the area. No one wants to believe that a crime like this happen where they live. The fact is that these types of crimes have and do happen in the area you live in too. You just don't know about it. It has to be something special before the media picks it up for sure. My adult kids were in grammar school when these crimes above were happening. They only knew about it because of the current news about the bodies being located.

    We live in what I believe is the greatest country in the world. But don't be fooled that you or your family can't be a victim.

    Teach your kids about safety. Tell them about this case and they just might think that it can happen to them.

  • Carrying a Stun Gun or Taser for Protection in your RV

    Updated 05-20-16

    One of the first self defense weapons thought of while on the road is a hand gun. I hate having to use a gun for self protection for any reason and I base this on just two main reasons of which you can add a large number of sub-reasons:

    1. With one's use, the result is often final.

    2. No matter what, if you have to use one, your life is changed forever.

    Just look at current news regarding the use of a gun and you will see point #2 above.

    Don't get me wrong; when I was working as a police detective and later as a Sergeant,  there were times I had been glad to have one. In fact I felt like something was missing if I didn't have one with me. But I also remember when one was used off duty, the person that had to use it, went under much more scrutiny and stress.

    I would recommend  that  non-lethal self defense weapons be used instead.

    With that said, I would like to move on to carrying a Stun Gun or Taser for protection in your RV.

    You can have a gun in your home and it is thought of in California, on a case by case bases, that when you live in your RV, it is considered your home for that period of time.  Although this may be true, when you cross state lines, it may well not be true.

    On the other hand,  Stun Guns are legal to carry in California almost anywhere and when you cross state lines they are most often also legal there.

    Plan ahead of time and check the laws in states and cities you plan to visit. (we have a starting point here)

    I just returned from a trip in my Fifth Wheel and although I carry Pepper Spray and Stun Gun Taser, I really had not thought much of how I might need it. But on this trip something happened that made me rethink that.

    It was a normal family gathering. We had a number of family members join us for a few days and after they left, we stayed a couple of extra days to have to ourselves and to clean up the campsite area. Since this is the beginning of the camping season not many campers stay due to school, work, or other obligations.  This trip was similar, except that only one other camper was in our campground area and he was unique to say the least.

    During the day he was always by himself and was either gone in his car or in his camp site.  However at night, he went into a behavior I can only describe as weird.

    There is nothing illegal about singing at the top of the lungs , dancing, or constant walking to and from the campground restroom, but it made us take notice. It was the next thing that made me think defense is something we needed to plan for.

    This camper drove around the campsites in his car at night and would stop and parked on the road near our campsite ten to fifteen minutes each time. He never left his car, but there was no reason to just sit there. There is nothing illegal about this, but it does give an uneasy feeling. And when it is during sleep time in a park full of animal and bird noises, it gets hard to sleep without a plan of some type.

    Here are some tips that I use for myself to make it a little safer and to help protect yourself and family in an RV.

    Have a Stun Gun, Taser, or Pepper Spray handy at all times. Know how to use them before you need them.

    RVs have a number of ways to get out, but only one or two doors for easy entry. Keep them closed, locked and never open them unless you know who is on the other side of the door.

    If you do open the door, have your stun gun Taser in hand at ready if needed. Remember you have the high ground; it will be difficult for someone to climb up in an offensive attack.

    It is our nature to go out to check on things when there is a noise. If at all possible at night, have valuables locked up and wait until the morning. Property can be replaced, a life cannot.

    Why not check? It may not be what you think:

    1. If it is a person and you leave the RV, you have lost your high ground and he, or they may also be armed with a weapon.

    2.  The noise is the unknown. We normally camp in Black Bear country. We see Bears all the time and know what to do if we see one. This time we were in the foot hills just an hour from home. What we did not know was that there had been a Mountain Lion seen several times in our campground area.

    Have a Plan:

    Have a cell phone with you and check to see if you have service where you are camping. If you do, have a plan for someone to call for help if needed. If you don't have service, have a plan to contact someone who knows where you are at planed times. If you miss the contact time, have a plan on what that person will do.

    Planning, practice, and training is a way to take care of problems that may come up ahead of time. This is just one type of safety planning for your trips, but when you have it in place as a routine, it becomes a background task. And if it is ever needed it can fall into place to help you feel safer and more secure.

    We have a large number of  Tasers, Stun Guns, and Pepper Spray products and information for you at www.ForSecuritySake.com. Feel free to give us a look and while you are there, we invite you to join our family and friends  by subscribing to our  free email news letter.

  • Carry Mace® Night Defender Pepper Spray Gel with UV dye

    Night defender Held lightForSecuritySake Mace night defender 72dpi ForSecuritySake

    Updated 05-20-2016

    Why carry Mace® Night Defender Pepper Spray Gel with UV dye ?

     

    Have you heard this line, or one like it before? “Young people think they are invincible, so nothing bad can happen to them”.  I have heard it in various ways, but I have said it too.

     

    Since the age of 14 years old, I have seen first hand what can and does happen to people at any age and at any time. That is the age I joined the police cadets and for the next 40 plus years I have gained much experience on the subject.

     

    So after retirement, I decided to continue my efforts to help people be a little safer and more secure in their daily lives.

     

    The most unsafe time to walk alone is at night, because this is the time when a large number of people have spare time. They are off work, out of school, and are out looking for fun. While there are all kinds of things to do, many will stop for a drink on the way home and still some others take drugs for whatever reason they can think of. The result of this is people do things at night that most would not do in the daytime. So it is a time when we don't want to be alone, however it is not always possible due to circumstances.

     

    Don’t have that “it can’t happen to me attitude”. Learn self defense and carry some type of self defense protection. One great product I have found will help you to be safer at night is The Mace® Night Defender Pepper Spray Gel with UV dye

     

    It is an innovative Gel Pepper Spray product so unique that it is patented.

    With a built-in bright LED Light (33 lux at 1m). The light activates when the cap is lifted. When you hold the unit in the ready position, with your thumb or finger placed on the actuator the light illuminates the area. The LED light also helps to blind an attacker while it gives you an idea where your Pepper Spray is aimed.

     

    Since the spray is a Gel, instead of a liquid spray, it will spray farther and will stick on contact.

     

    The mixed in UV dye formula can be used by Law Enforcement to help identify the attacker at a later time.

     

    This model is great for indoors or outdoors at night, or areas with low-light. It contains 45 grams and sprays up to 10 to 20 short bursts with an effective range of up to 18 feet.
    Batteries for the LED light are included and replaceable.

     

    Dimensions 4 3/4" x 1 1/2" x 2 1/4"

     

    Below is a very short video we found that shows the size of this product and how to activate the LED light.

     

  • Pepper Spray For Protection In Stockton

    Smoking gun

    Updated 05-20-2016

    The city of Stockton, California is located in the San Joaquin Valley, about 90 minutes drive East of San Fransisco. With a population exceeding  302,000, the city is just emerging from bankruptcy. As a result they have had to lay off a number of police officers and firemen. You should carry Pepper Spray For Protection In Stockton!

    Every city that has had to lay off police officers will suffer a rise in crime because of it and the release of prison inmates due to recent law changes. But for it to happen in Stockton is like turning off bilge pumps when a boat is taking on water.

    In recent years violent crime has risen in alarming rates. In 2011, there was a record number of Homicides and being only in the third month of 2012, it is reported that Murders have doubled when compared with the same time period then the year prior.

    Do you feel safe in Stockton?

    Neighborhoodscout lists crime rates for cities in the U.S. and lists how safe a certain city is. As of the date of this writing update Stockton is listed as a 4 out of 100, with 100 being the safest. Stockton is safer than 4% of all cities in the United States, with residents having a 1 in 74 chance of being a victim of a violent crime.

    This is a few years old now, but it still represents an issue for Residents in Stockton. Citizens are continuing their demand for a solution to the violence in their city. As a response after two deadly shootings in the same block in one week, the Stockton Police Department has started a program they call "Real Time Policing".  The program allows street level supervisors and officers to make decisions on the street, without having to first go through staff meetings and red tape.

    In the above mentioned shooting, Stockton police officers were checking a neighborhood for possible information regarding a Murder that happened on the street that same week. A subject contacted became uncooperative and shot one of the officers, who in turn was then shot and killed by another officer. Below is a press release video.

     

    Further investigation into the shooting preliminarily shows it to be the same gun involved in the earlier murder.

    Can you legally carry Pepper Spray in California?

    Yes. Pepper Spray, or tear gas in aerosol form up to 2.5 oz can be carried and used for self defense in California.

    Carry Pepper Spray For Protection in Stockton. You can learn more about Pepper Spray and choose your protection here.

  • Pepper Spray On A KeyRing Saved A Woman From Sexual Assault

    Pepper_Shot Spray

    WCNC.COM News covered a story from the Huntersville N.C. Police Department about how a bite and Pepper Spray on a keyring saved a woman from sexual assault.

    The woman was in her vehicle stopped at a stop sign when a man came out of nowhere. He reached into the woman's open window and dragged her out of her car.

    He then forced her into some bushes in the medin of the roadway.

    The woman fought back by first biting the suspect's hand which then allowed her to grab the pepper spray on her keyring.

    After the man was sprayed with the pepper spray he ran off.

    Police are still gathering information from possible witnesses.

    They credit the woman victim for fighting back and preventing a bad situation from getting worse.

    The suspect is described as being white, 45 to 55 years old with a beard and salt and pepper colored hair.

    ForSecuritySake.com carries a vast selection of Pepper Sprays and other self defense products designed to make your daily life a little safer.

  • Prepare For Self Defense With Non Lethal Weapons

    I joined the Boy Scouts at the age of 10 and I first learned about the Scout motto Be Prepared at that time. At the age of 14 I switched to Police Cadet Explorer, which turned into a life long career. That motto has stuck with me throughout my life. I believe that it is a fact that between my Guardian angle and following that Scout motto, I have been saved from great bodily harm more than I care to talk with my family about.  

     

    A California police officer must prepare for self defense and carries a number of products on his body and duty belt that would rival some cartoon super heroes.

    A uniform tells his co workers who he is in a given situation.

    A bullet proof vest provides protection from gun shots and other weapons.

    At least one pair of handcuffs to keep suspects under control.

    Up to three or more non lethal weapons to help bring a suspect under control and to protect the officer when it is needed.

    These include:

    A can of Pepper spray

    A baton

    A Taser or stun gun

    A handgun with 12 to 18 rounds of preloaded ammunition, when lethal force is necessary

    Extra ammunition

    And fast becoming a needed product; some type of video device to record incidents with sound

     

    In addition to these always carried products, some special and dedicated officers have a trained  K9 or (Police Dog) to help find and disable suspects and to find evidence.  

    Police officers train all the time to use these products and K9s, so they will be ready when they are needed. (Notice that there is a when, not an if in the above sentence.)

     

    Today when you watch the news, or read the paper, you will notice that the number of police officers on the street have been cut by large amounts, due to the economy. The latest in my area is Isleton , California; because the city could not pay their State Comp insurance bill, the policy was canceled and the police department closed down. The already strapped Sacramento County Sheriff Department had to take over emergency calls, but the sheriff advised that his department would not take routine calls for service.

     

    Now that I am retired, I see the continued need to be prepared for myself. We still have law enforcement, but they will not be able to get to us as fast. Even when police departments have a full staff, the majority of police officers arrive at emergency calls for service after the incident is over.

     

    So we need to protect ourselves. I still prefer to prepare for self defense with a non lethal Pepper Spray and a Taser stun gun. Why not a handgun?

    A handgun carries with it a number of risks that you may not think of:

     

    First you must train and train often to be sure that you know how to use it, if it is ever needed.

    It must be cleaned and oiled often to keep it operational.

    And here are a few questions that you must ask:

    Is it legal for me to carry it?

    Do you know how to load it?

    Where is the safety?

    How do you aim it?

    What happens to the bullet if the gun is fired and the target is missed? For starters; It can go through a car door and out the second door and if fired inside the home, several walls and / or family members.

    On top of those, you have to ask yourself this important Question: Can my kids get to it. In most cases the answer to that question is yes.

    Do you think a handgun is safe under your pillow, or on the top shelf of a closet? Think again. Kids are smart and quick.

    A recent tragic incident in the Sacramento California area happened to a decorated Sheriff Deputy. He was in his garage cleaning his handgun(s). He finished and loaded one and placed it back on his cleaning table. He turned to get something and his five year old daughter quickly picked it up and shot herself by accident. She died almost instantly.

     

    Non Lethal weapons still need to be maintained and there are some restrictions you need to know about.

    Those with batteries need to be checked for power.

    Pepper Spray needs to be replaced after four years because of possible leaks and loss of propellant pressure.

    But when you prepare for self defense with non lethal weapons the chance for tragedies like the one above are nil. 

     

    Our mission at www.ForSecuritySake.com is to help you and your families live safer and more secure in your daily lives. Visit our site here for information on Stun Gun and Pepper Spray laws.  We try to keep this list updated, but to be sure you should check your local laws.

  • Tazer (Taser®) Products Will Help Protect You And Your Family

    Updated 05-20-16

    There is violence news in the headlines every day now. One that stands out, is about a young woman newly widowed and facing the challenge of having to take care of her baby as a single mother.

    A short time after her husband's funeral, the woman received a knock at her door. She was confronted with a young man that tried to talk his way into her home. She refused and he left.

    Later the man came back again with a friend and started to force their way into the woman's home. She retreated to a bedroom where she blockaded the door, obtained two weapons- one of which was a shotgun-, and called law enforcement for help.

    The dispatch tape of this call has been released and you can hear the woman ask the dispatcher if she could shoot the men if they entered her bedroom. The dispatcher told her that she could not give permission, but that she needed to do what ever was needed to protect her baby.

    The men reportedly forcibly entered the bedroom with a knife and one of them was killed when the women used the shotgun. The second suspect ran away.

    The way this was reported shows that the woman thought about her family's safety first and she was able to protect her baby and herself successfully. If she didn't have her weapons, or if she hadn't  known how to use them, this situation would have had a very different ending.

    Are you ready for a similar thing if it were to happen to you? If you prefer not to use, or don't have a firearm, do you have a non-lethal Taser, Pepper Spray, or a Stun gun? The time to prepare is now. The above type of incident can happen to anyone anywhere.

    Non-Lethal weapons can be a better choice than a lethal firearm, because you won't hesitate to use them. Although the experience is tramatic to begin with, adding the burden that you took a life stays with you forever.  A non- lethal product will cause pain, or temporally incapacitate an attacker while you get safely away.

    Personally, I prefer to carry a  Taser, or Stun Gun and Pepper Spray wherever my family goes. Lets compare each of these non lethal weapons.

    distance_shot

    Taser, sometimes misspelled Tazer, products will help protect you and your family. Specifically designed for the general public, the Taser C2, or the new Taser Bolt work similar to and can work as a stun gun, but has darts that shoot out to the attacker.  Wires from the darts connected to the Taser body allow a 30 second burst of electrical pulses that shock the recipient of the darts with 50,000 volts.  The Taser is designed for you to drop the Taser while the attacker is unable to control his muscles for 30 seconds, giving you time to get away and get help.  You can get more information and watch our Taser Videos by clicking on this link. If you get the message only secure content is shown, you will have to click on show all content to see the videos.

    Pepper Spray is inexpensive, easy to carry in a car, pocket, or purse, and is effective. Sprayed in the face of an attacker pepper spray will cause a burning sensation and cause the attacker to be confused and unable to focus.

    A Stun Gun is inexpensive, easy to carry in a car, belt holster, pocket, or purse. Holding an activated stun gun against an attacker can cause pain, muscle dysfunction, and disorientation.

  • Steering Wheel Alarms Help Protect Your Entire Car

    Picture1It is shopping time. Our mission at ForSecuritySake is to help people go about their daily lives in a safer way, by providing helpful information and products. Today we would like tell you about how portable inexpensive Steering Wheel Alarms help protect your entire car.

    Last year the FBI reported that there was a Burglary every 18.2 seconds and there was an auto theft every 45.7 seconds.  Those statistics are for the year 2014 and as we get closer to Christmas, or other national gift giving time, your chances of becoming a victim rises. We can blame politics, the economy, or high unemployment, but the fact is that theft of gifts from vehicles is high again this year.

    In 2011, the crime of Auto Burglary has increased so much that our police department has erected signs at the entrance of shopping mall parking lots. Those signs warn shoppers to lock their vehicles and not to leave packages in the visible areas.

    In most cases a thief looks for an easy to enter vehicle that has the most to offer for the risk. Lets look at two SUVs parked side by side in a packed mall parking lot.

    One SUV is packed with visible gifts, has the windows cracked open, and has no active alarm system.

    The other SUV has closed tented rear windows, locked doors,  and a visible portable steering wheel alarm.

    The thief is going to look even harder at the first vehicle as a target. As with the second vehicle, the way to reduce your risk is to make your vehicle look like a harder target than other cars near you.

    The fact is that many thieves think differently then an honest person. During my Law Enforcement career, I have interviewed many suspects and I would like to tell you about one of them.

    A woman had been shopping and while unloading her car at home, she left her purse and some packages on top of her car. She walked into her house and was back out to her car within a minute. When she came back out, she noticed her purse and packages were gone and saw a car pulling away from the home next door.

    I was able to locate and arrest the suspect, an ex-con, within a couple of blocks. During the interview he was eager to tell me his side as he had done nothing wrong. He said that when someone leaves their property on top of their car, he has the right to take it because the owner is inviting him to. He said they are willingly giving the property away. Nothing I said to this man could change his mind.

    In 40 years of my Law Enforcement experience, the right to take it,  or the common " I don't know why I did it", were the two most common excuses a suspect gave for a theft.

    A Steering Wheel Alarm will help protect your property and your car from thieves like the one I interviewed above. If you protect your property to the point that the alarm is what is seen first, there is a great chance that the thief will move to another target.

    Here are a few other shopping tips.

    It is better to shop at an area that is well lit at night, has parking lot security, and doesn't have a on ramp to a major freeway near the parking lot entrance.

    Pay attention to what is going on as you pull into a parking lot and continue to look around until you get into the store. When you come out with packages, look again to see who is still there and if there is a help out service have them walk you to your car.

    Shopping days often brings the need to take purchases to your vehicle and go on to the next store. If your car has a trunk, place your packages there. If not place the packages in an area that is hard to see. Cover them up with something like  an old blanket. Activate that alarm!

    Carry a self defense product like a Taser, Stun Gun, Pepper Spray, or personal alarm. Have it ready to use as you walk to your transportation.

    If you have an alarm system you need to activate it when you are away from your vehicle. Our Portable inexpensive Steering wheel alarms help protect your entire car and have warning lights that blink. This will make the thief  think twice before choosing your car to break into. These alarms are easy to use, can be attached in less than a minute, and have remote control activation and disarm functions.

    Our main goal today is for you to be safe out there during all of your shopping days!

    Have a safe and happy shopping experience.

     

  • What Self Defense Weapons Are Legal?

    For Security Sake Shield FSS CRKCAR copyThere's nothing at all worse than being somewhere, or in a position where you fear a lack of safety or self defense.  To help with that feeling, many choose to purchase a self defense weapon, such as a stun gun, Taser, or pepper spray. But how can you know if that self defense weapon is legal to possess?

    The General public normally does not know the legal guidelines in their personal state, or city, regarding the possession of self defense weapons. With so many laws on the books, even police officers have to be updated yearly to new and changed laws! Depending where you live, the possession of some weapons can be a violation that could result in  jail time! So how do you know what is and is not legal?

    The easy solution to this question is to phone your neighborhood police department. But some people will not want to "bother" the police with  questions.

    At ForSecuritySake.com, you can find  two selections regarding Stun gun laws and pepper spray laws. While these pages have useful information, they will not tell you the complete tale.

    The other day, a gentleman contacted us via our contact us form from ForSecuritySake.com. He wanted to know if he could purchase a steel baton for protection and carry it in his car.  He lives in California and wanted to know if the metal baton was legal. Under California law, it is illegal to carry a baton or club for protection in a car. In California, even a baseball bat is illegal to carry in a car, if it is carried for the purpose of protection. We were able to provide him information on our Stun Guns, Taser, and pepper spray, that he could carry instead.

    So if you have a question on the legality of a self defense weapon, use our Contact Us Form.

    By walking down the street, you don't know which person is a bad guy, but that shouldn't make you fear for your safety.  You can purchase top quality self defense products for individual protection. You just need to know what is legal for the area you live in and know never to use the weapon for offense. Check out our website for all your self defense needs.
