The mainstream press is alive with the subject of guns. Guns and their owners are at the forefront of most of the news media in this country and I suppose in Europe too.
In a way I think it is kind of ironic, you see I would be willing to lay you eight to five, that hammers, pick-axes, and other hand held blunt instruments, injure, maim and kill more people in this country on a yearly basis than do guns.
I know some of you own guns, but this is something to think about … rational thinking seldom applies on a hot button subject like this. Recently in Mississippi they took a bus load of kids to the police station for throwing smores at each other, and then charged them with assault.
Handcuffed a kid to a railing for not wearing a belt to school and believe it or not, suspended a kindergartner for “just talking about a TOY gun.”
Overkill, pure and simple. When will the “sane people” come onboard and register in with some pure rational thinking on this matter? Public opinion seems at best a little bit off and media attention is at the point of just give them up, the world will be a better place.
And “if frogs had wings … well you know the rest.”
Even my wife, has breached the subject and was wanting a gun (not a good idea) and now is dead set on a stun gun or a taser. Which I find lacking, first it allows the predator in close and I don’t like that at all. Then there is the somewhat remote outside chance I could really irritate her … but we won’t go there, as I am determined that this is going to be a “serious piece.”
If you don’t have a gun, here’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s evil plans for you. Wasp Spray, available just about anywhere, added bonus, no permit required, open carry if you wish. Did you know this? I didn’t. I never really thought of it before. I guess I can get rid of the Louisville Slugger (baseball bat).
Give some serious consideration to … Wasp Spray
We heard of a lady who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.
The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use.
On the heels of a break in and beating that left an elderly woman in Toledo dead, self defense experts have a tip that could save your life. Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School. For decades, he’s suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed.
Glinka says, “This is better than anything I can teach them.”
Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your home, Glinka says “spray the culprit in the eyes”. It’s a tip he’s given to students for decades. It’s also one he wants everyone to hear. If you’re looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray. “That’s going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out.” Maybe even save a life. Please share this with all the people who are precious to your life.
Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake? And a mouse! It will! Good to know, huh? If someone comes at you and you fear for your safety let them have it right in the face. They can work it out with the cops at the hospital later.
Now here is the other shoe hitting the floor. If you own a gun, put two or three rounds in ‘em, stick a hammer in their hand, and then call 911. Like Dr. Phil sez … That works for me.
Have a good weekend, you worked hard for it, enjoy.
