  • Can You Carry A Stun Gun?

    Not too long ago I found myself in a discussion on social media site, with a person who was making some claims about Stun Guns that were not accurate. What this person said, was that you must have a concealed weapons permit for your stun gun or you couldn't carry it. The information that she was providing was not accurate and when I tried to correct the statement, I was met with hostility and name calling.

    It always amazes me how people feel that they are experts about something when they don’ t take the time to really understand what they are talking about. In this case she was receiving her information from her Law-enforcement friends, so I understand why she thought she was correct.

    I have blogged about this topic before on Stun Gun legalities most recently about the Supreme court ruling in March. It is very important to know what the laws in your state or city are and I am providing a link that will give you all of the laws and restrictions for your information.

    In today’s day and age, it is very easy to google for any information and when I did it before I posted this blog. An article popped up about Georgia Colleges now allowing students to carry Stun Guns on Campus.

    ATLANTA — For the first time, students at Georgia’s public colleges and universities will be allowed to legally carry stun guns, starting Friday.

    State Rep. Buzz Brockway, R-Lawrenceville, sponsored the bill and told Channel 2’s Lori Geary this is all about safety.

    “During the session, I was getting calls, especially from students at Georgia State, because there were three robberies in the library while we were in session, so there were a lot of students who contacted me to say, 'Hey can I have one now?'" Brockway said.

    Brockway said most campus policies prohibited the electroshock weapons on campus but this state law will trump those policies.

    Earlier this year, Gov. Deal vetoed the campus carry bill, which would have allowed licensed gun owners to bring their weapons onto campus, excluding dorms, fraternity and sorority houses and sporting events.

    Georgia HB 792 allows anyone 18 years or older or currently enrolled in a Georgia public college to carry a stun gun anywhere on campus  for full article

    Protecting yourself is your right and it is protected under the constitution. Make sure you are taking the time to really know what you can and cannot do. And if you are traveling to a different place. Check on the laws.

  • What is going on at our College Campuses? Stun Guns for Protection!

    1 in 4 women experience  sex assaults on campus 1 in 4 women experience sex assaults on campus

    Have you read the news lately?  It looks as if every time I search for campus crimes, I am flooded with multiple stories about crimes that have occurred.  Here is a one story that I think clearly illustrates the challenges going on our college campuses today.  The article talked of the arrest of 2 individuals for whom are facing multiple charges to include Sexual assault at the University of British Columbia.  It proceeds to illustrate additional attacks that have happened.

    Colleges are taking steps to make campuses safer, but it does not take away from our right to protect ourselves.   There are many choices, but one we recommend would be stun guns for protection.

    Barry Eccleton, UBC director of campus security, says a string of unsolved attacks since 2013 have prompted officials to install security cameras, emergency phones, and improved lighting on campus.

    Despite these efforts, the school has still been plagued by reports of a prowler.

    “A sexual assault is something that just horrifies us, and something that we don’t like to hear about, obviously,” said Eccleton.

    “Certain people will be attracted to an environment like ours, and our job is to make sure that we keep the campus as safe as possible.”

    On March 25, a 20-year-old female student was walking alone when the man emerged from a wooded area and grabbed her from behind. He proceeded to shake her violently and force her to the ground, rubbing his midsection against her back in a sexual manner, according to University RCMP.

    The woman fought off her attacker - who fled - and called 911. She was treated for minor bruising to the side of her head.

    Just one week later, a young woman spotted a man pressing himself against a window in the lounge area of Marine Drive residence Building 5.

    The man then made an unsuccessful attempt to break into the building, according to an email that was sent out warning the campus community.

    Three weeks ago, Jason Anthony White, a high-risk sex offender wanted on Canada-wide arrest, was taken into custody on UBC campus.

    Officials are warning students and residents to take precautions to protect themselves. Suggestions include walking with a friend, being aware of surroundings, and not allowing strangers to "tailgate" into apartment buildings.  Full article click here:

    The ongoing stories that are coming out about rapes and assaults on our nations campuses are a clear statement of how unsafe things have become.  Maybe these things have always been around, but I don't remember this many incidents when I went to school.

    As a father of teenage girls, who will soon be going off to College, I for one am going to make sure they can protect themselves.  Stun Guns for protection is a great viable option and one that we at 1st Discount Safety would strongly recommend.

    Be safe

  • Stun Guns And The 2nd Amendment

    2ndamendmentBetter late than never, but I wanted to make sure I posted this and get some reactions.  Back in March The Supreme Court made a very important ruling as it pertains to the right to Protect oneself and more directly the rights to carry a stun gun.  Without getting in the specifics, I am including a clip and link below of the full article, The courts reversed a states ruling on a woman that had been arrested for protecting herself with a stun gun.

    You won't believe the antiquated argument the Massachusetts courts used to justify their law and why they felt that they were not violating the  constitution and our right to bear arms.

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday unanimously reversed a Massachusetts court that had upheld banning stun guns, giving proponents of gun rights at least a temporary victory.

    The justices ruled that the state court's reasons for upholding the law conflicted with the Supreme Court's 2008 decision upholding the right to bear arms for self-defense -- a ruling written by the late Justice Antonin Scalia in 2008.

    The challenge, filed by a woman who was arrested for carrying the weapon in her purse for protection, now gets new life. But rather than hearing the case themselves and potentially striking down the ban, the justices sent it back to the state's Supreme Judicial Court.

    They reasoned that their own landmark decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago were meant to protect even firearms "that were not in existence at the time of the founding." However, they stopped short of a blanket endorsement of stun guns.

    That did not satisfy Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, who complained in a 10-page concurrence that the court's "grudging" decision to send the case back may not be enough to save Jaime Caetano and citizens like her "who must defend themselves because the state will not."

    "If the fundamental right of self-defense does not protect Caetano, then the safety of all Americans is left to the mercy of state authorities who may be more concerned about disarming the people than about keeping them safe," Alito wrote.  Clip from USA today

    This is a huge step forward in protecting our rights, I look forward to seeing how the lower courts will react to this ruling.  Massachusetts isn't the only state with Laws about stun guns, so the implications on how this will impact your rights on the positive side are BIG.

  • As a Realtor, Don't be a Victim of Crime.

    I was at a show this weekend and many of the customers that spent time with me were talking about their safety and defending themselves were Realtors.  If you think of dangerous job's, at first glance, I bet you would not think that a realtor would fall in that category.

    You Never know who will come to see the home! You Never know who will come to see the home.

    Think about it.  How many jobs entail meeting regularly  with people you don't know in secluded or private settings?

    I did a quick search and it didn't take long for me to find the article below out of Georgia.

    LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Police have filed charges against a man who allegedly attacked a real estate agent in Gwinnett County on Wednesday. Jeffrey Wayne Shumate, 38, is charged with Aggravated Assault, False Imprisonment and Battery.

    According to Gwinnett County Police, the real estate agent said she was contacted by Shumate who said he was interested in viewing a home that is for sale. The woman agreed to meet him at the house in the 4200 block of Sugarloaf Parkway. Police said when the Shumate showed up he was wearing women's clothing and a wig.

    The woman unlocked the door and allowed the suspect to view the home alone while she waited outside. As he left the house, he grabbed the woman and began assaulting her, police said.

    "Fortunately the victim was able to defend herself and she was able to get away from the suspect," said Cpl. Michele Pihera. "She began to run near the roadway and that's when she flagged down a citizen who called 911."  Link to full story

    Personal safety can never be taken for granted .  I was happy to help so many this weekend with their safety and protection needs.  Don't take your safety for granted especially if you are in this field.

    That is why I would  strongly recommend  a compact stun Gun like the Li'l Guy stun gun.  If you have any question or comment please feel free to respond and I will see what I can do to assist.

  • Pool Safety is a Must

    pool-drowning-e1414403307270-300x223Pool safety is a must especially if you own your own pool.  As we start to see warmer weather, the unfortunate truth is that we will begin to see an increase in drownings.  Most drownings are preventable and all it takes are a few  precautionary steps.

    From fences to a pool protector alarm you have a wide selection of choices, but it does not take away from the most important tool and that is supervision.

    Whether you live in a climate that's warm year-round or you mainly enjoy outdoor activities during the summer, swimming and water are likely to be a big part of family fun. But the importance of safety cannot be overstated.

    Drowning is the leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 2. It's the second leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 6, but people of any age can be at risk. In 2013, 3,391 people over all age groups drowned. (Injury Facts, 2016)

    While many are aware of the importance of safety around pools and at the beach, parents also need to supervise their children near bathtubs. Most drowning and near-drowning incidents happen when a child falls into a pool or is left alone in the bathtub. (Injury Facts, 2016).  Attributed to: National Safety Council.

    Having lived around pools   and water all of my life, there is no greater terror that having a loved one drown is your pool and knowing you could have prevented it.  Don't put off till tomorrow what you must do today!  Make sure your pool is safe and everyone using it understands the rules.  Most importantly, don't forget those that are not old enough to understand the dangers and place measures in place to protect them from the dangers.

    Pool safety is everyone's responsibility, don't take it for granted!!

     

     

     

  • A students guide from a concerned parent on avoiding being assaulted on a College campus!

    As I prepare to send my daughter off to college, I can not help but think about the dangers she may face. All you have to do is search for rapes on college campuses to be horrified.

    When it comes to crime statistics, they vary from campus to campus, but there is one crime that is commonly reported, and that is rape. You don't have to look hard to realize that this is a huge problem, and crimes can take place anywhere. In school, determining common situations in which the crime commonly occurs is a way to prevent this crime, and following a self-defense Off-to-collegeguide is a good idea too.

    People tend to be more prone to student rape due to being involved in various activities, such as going back home when it's late at night after you have been to the library or studying at a friend's house. Not only that, but there's a good chance you'll be going to different social gatherings and parties while at college. This means you'll meet new people, and you when it comes to your actions, you have to be cautious.

    One of the things you should do is walk with a large group if you are walking around your college's campus or when heading to the library. Make sure your friends are with you when you walk back to your dorm room, and if it's late at night, always have someone with you. If you are in a group or with someone else, an attacker will have second thoughts and they will likely not be able to carry out his plan.

    Avoid dark places and secluded places if you're alone. This is because you could end up being cornered, but if you cannot avoid going to dark places or secluded areas alone, such as if you have to go to the parking lot, then walk fast. Also, be aware of your surroundings because this will allow you to see if someone is following you.

    Having a self-defense device is a good idea too, and stung guns and pepper spray are good choices. Just make sure you find out if such devices are allowed on your campus, and if it is, then buy a cheap stun gun or similar devices. They can serve as protection for you and you can bring them virtually anywhere you go. If someone tries to harm you, then you can use the device to defend yourself.

    Also, control your actions when you are around people in social gatherings and occasions of that nature, because drinking too much alcohol has consequences. For example, if you drink too much, then you could easily be taken advantage of by someone you just met or by someone you don't even know at all. Either drink in moderate amounts or don't drink at all. There is something called Drink Guard and you should consider getting it because it is a date rape drug detector.

    Finally, only stick with people you actually know and people who you can trust. Before you trust new people you have just met, make sure you get to know them better because it's not really a good idea to trust strangers right off the bat. Outsiders are not the only ones who can commit crimes against people, as other college students can do it too.

    Crime can and does happen at college campuses, and this is a fact. It's important to be aware of your surroundings and be alert, and you need to be responsible for your actions. Equipping yourself with pepper spray is also a good idea. Rape cases can occur anywhere and this is why it's good to be prepared and you should know how to defend yourself.

  • Mace or Pepper Spray, Which Do You Need?

    Woman spayingIf you are considering the purchase of a chemical deterrent for your self-defense needs, then you are undoubtedly aware of the difficulty associated with the decision. Not only are there so many interesting brands to choose from, but many people are unsure if there is even a difference between Mace and Pepper Spray. well guess what? There is!

    Following is an important compilation of all the need to know info to help you make the most enlightened choices on the path to self-protection.

    Pepper Spray

    First of all, let us discuss pepper spray and how it can be a potent tool. the potency of pepper spray comes from Oleoresin Capsicum, the same stuff that makes the Habanero chili such tasty treat. The reaction from contact with oleoresin capsicum, or simply OC, is blindness for up to 30 minutes depending on the length and amounts of exposure.

    There is also intense irritation to the skin, runny nose and massive tearing as well. The potency of a pepper spray can be rated by SHUs or Scoville Heat Units. The higher the Shus, the higher the intensity the more potent the stopping power. Some can get as high as 1,000,000 SHUs, these varieties make an especially effective self-defense against assailants and are often used by law enforcement.

    Mace

    In the other hand, we have mace. Mace combines all the spicy flavor of OC and the crunch of CS Tear gas to bring assailants to a grinding and blinding halt. About 10% of Mace’s total content is concentrated pepper spray with the rest being CS tear gas, which is known to give some nasty burns and irritations but is still non-lethal.

    Mace has been found potent enough to deter a bear or an attack dog. The reputation that Mace has throughout the world has made it a household name and it really needs no introduction.

    Mace or Pepper Spray — Which Do You Need?

    So many people wonder which is the best for them, a fairly common question. The answer is mostly left to your personal need and preference; a more potent chemical deterrent is always more effective. Certain states, Michigan for instance, only allow the use and purchase of specially Michigan Approved Mace products, no others are allowed.

    If you work for law enforcement, perhaps a more potent apparatus would serve your line of duty. Special police grade Mace is also available, with significantly higher levels of OC combined with CS Gas. Pepper power is truly the way to go when bringing down a human.

    But maybe a more comprehensive protection plan is in order. In which case, Mace is available in a nice variety of apparatus from inconspicuous paper weights to intimidating mace batons. Mace is also all-inclusive, and is an effective and non-lethal way to fend off bears, cougars, dogs and any other marauder from the animal kingdom in addition to human thugs. Pepper spray might not be as effective in some of these situations.

    The first step to finding the best defense for you and your situation will be by listing out the things you would like and the defense you need, then have this on hand when you contact a distributor of self-defense products so they can guide you to the most appropriate solution.

  • Personal safety

    I had an interesting conversation while i was traveling last week with a wonderful lady concerned about her safety.  The conversation covered a lot of different areas, but finally settled on home safety.  She described how it was when she drove home at night and what her neighborhood looked like.  How when she gets home she knew that she would see people on the streets and was always worried about what they were doing.  Enough so that she finally had decided to do something about it.  She was going to get some cameras for her house so we spent the next few minutes talking about different types of cameras and DVR's that she could install.

    The next day I saw her again and she stopped to tell me how much she had enjoyed our conversation.  She then described more about her neighborhood and that she felt she needed to buy a gun.  WOW!!  I quickly asked her if she had ever owned a gun and she said no. Now I am an advocate for everyone having the right to protect themselves and owning a gun is your right, but without the proper training and knowledge it could be a mistake.  I told her could bore her with the statics of how many accidental shooting occurs every year but won't.  Instead I told her about the benefits of Pepper Sprays and Stun guns.

    People just want to feel safe in their homes and neighborhoods and I am glad to say that we have many of the items that can provide you with security.

    Here is a nice video clip of pepper spray in Acton.
