Protecting yourself is an absolute necessity. Whether you are living home alone or walking around the corner to get to the convenience store, nothing is safe in today’s environment. It is generally recommended that all women learn self-defense techniques that will allow them to fend off any potentially dangerous people without having to rely on luck and goodwill. In recent years certain non-lethal weapons have been introduced to defend against attacks. One of the more popular ones is called a Taser. Or more popularly known as stun guns by police officers.
Here are some of the reasons why you should always have a Taser with you:
Tasers don’t need a permit
One of the best, and maybe the worst, reasons to own a Taser is the fact that Tasers most likely do not require a permit to use them. You can probably go to any arms store and get yourself one, and you won’t have to show a permit. Although, this is highly superficial in some countries. You might need to recheck your state legislation and laws to check if they have anything regarding owning non-lethal weapons.
Tasers are small and easy to carry
Another good thing about a Taser is the fact that it is easy to use, and small enough to fit in certain types of pockets, or handbags. You could buy a holster for your Taser and keep it hidden under your clothes until you will need to use it.
Tasers don’t really weigh a lot, so they shouldn’t be a burden on your body.
Tasers have a safety button
Another good reason to invest yourself in a Taser is the fact that they have a dedicated safety button like the recent lethal weapons. You don’t need to worry that you will shock yourself in the process, the Taser won’t work as long as the safety button is on.
Oh, but do note that you should get yourself acquainted with and used to switching the safety button on the Taser. When in danger, the body moves on its own and if your body is used to switching the safety button off, it will potentially save you from danger.
They can be recharged
Another reason that you should always have a Taser with you is that you do not need to replace its batteries every month or so. They can be recharged after every use.
Tasers are very efficient so you don’t need to worry about the batteries discharging themselves while they are in your pocket. Tasers will work as long as you have charged them once.
They are widely accepted
Many companies that empower women’s rights allow their customers to keep a Taser on them while they are in their presence. You don’t need to worry about putting the Taser away or getting jailed just for having a non-lethal weapon that is designed to protect you from potential danger.
