Defense Tools:  Non-Lethal Devices to Consider

America is at a crossroads. 

Either we let lawlessness and chaos continue to divide our great nation or we will stand up for law and order.

18 of the most DANGEROUS cities in the USA are run by Democrats…

Minneapolis, St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago, LA, Portland,  etc.-why would anyone reelect Democrats?

Our civil rights have really taken a beating this year, and it's about to get worse.


With more and more police departments talking about defunding the police, and police actually walking off the job to protest arrests of their fellow officers, we could all end up on our own.


Imagine calling 911... and there's NOBODY who can come help you.


More than ever, you need a gun to protect yourself and your family... but gun owners are also being treated worse than ever.


During the pandemic, gun stores were declared "non-essential," gun permit systems were shut down, and background check systems were suspended to halt gun sales.


Those same power-mad authorities are the same ones who want to disband police departments, but they ALSO want to take your guns away.


And now, with the rioting and looting going unchecked, these people have gotten a real taste of power.


Armed St. Louis protesters broke iron gate, threatened couple before they drew their own guns, attorney says

It's only a matter of time before they start issuing MORE unconstitutional attacks on your gun rights.


I mean, most of them hate gun owners and firearms rights when things are GOOD, to say nothing of a national emergency.


For a long time now, these same anti-gun dictators have been using the law to hassle gun owners.


Whether it's requiring insurance, passing laws that say gun owners can't buy insurance, or suing and prosecuting gun owners into bankruptcy when they do use their weapons, these efforts are all built on you being all alone when they come after you.


Leftist, progressive, socialist-Dems never accept responsibility for their failed policies which have decimated so many cities.  Now, BLM leaders openly admit their true goal is to gut and remake America into a communist nation-We cannot allow that to happen.


They don't just hate police - they hate America!

Using a Soviet strategy called the ‘Popular Front,’ American Communists [during the Depression] tried enhancing their image pretending to be average Americans; ingratiating themselves with Hollywood stars, involvement as populists in government at all levels-they’re replicating that strategy now w/ help of Justice Democrats, an offshoot of the Communist PartyUSA.

Given the violence demonstrated by antifa and looters, I feel it’s wise to for citizens to arm up with lethal and non-lethal weapons.  [gun sales have been off the charts in the past two months…indeed, looked for a hammerless .22 revolver for my wife-each store we contacted was sold out]!

We’ve invested in various pepper sprays [including hornet sprays w/ 20’ range], expanding police batons, DIY monkey ball [a doubled up sock filled with ball bearings], machetes, stun guns, etc.

Keep in mind these tools are used primarily for close encounters.  We own shotguns and decided to add some non-lethal shells to our stockpile.  You’ll find a variety at the following Ohio distributor.

I chose a variety of non-lethal 12ga. Shotgun rock salt and pepper cartridges.  If needed, these would be my ‘warning’ shots against intruders/rioters.  See their site below for their offerings.

Best Non-lethal Weapons for Home Defense

Home defense is something that should be on the back-burner of everyone’s mind. Even if you don’t ever need to break out your home defense weapons, it’s better to have them and not need them, then to find yourself in need and not be able to defend yourself. Let’s take a look at some of the best non-lethal weapons for home defense because a gun isn’t always the answer to your problems.

Gun Ownership Statistics

Individuals focused on home defense often default to the purchase of a gun, and they’re not alone. Twenty-six (26) percent of gun owners classify themselves as protectors — people who aren’t necessarily outdoorsy but want to own one or more guns to protect themselves or their families. Another fifteen (15) percent of gun owners are known as “Debbie Defense” — female gun owners who are also protectors but may only own a small and lightweight firearm to carry with them for their protection. There is a male version of Debby Defense, known as Guardian Gary. These gun owners make up fifteen (15) percent of firearms purchases, but these individuals usually don’t enjoy recreational shooting, preferring to own a gun solely for defense.

Sometimes though, you may want something a little less powerful than a firearm, because firearms are a binary weapon, only giving you two choices – brandish and hope for compliance and deescalation of the situation or deliver deadly force. Hopefully these less-lethal options offer something that can still stop someone in their tracks before this most serious of choices.

In difficult times, we fall back on basic principles. The basics begin with safety for ourselves and our loved ones. This is why gun sales are surging. Gun dealers, in fact, are seeing particularly high demand near the very major American cities that push the harshest gun-control policies on their residents. Read More

Gen Z are often described as seeking independence and opportunity but are also among the least likely to believe there is such a thing as the “American Dream,” and that the “system is rigged” against them. Frequently seeing themselves as agents for social change, they crave fulfillment and excitement in their job to help “move the world forward.” Despite the technological proficiency they possess, Gen Z actually prefer person-to-person contact as opposed to online interaction. They describe themselves as being involved in their virtual and physical communities, and as having rejected excessive consumerism.


When a disaster strikes an urban area, there are all sorts of unexpected problems that require specific tools. For example, what if a gas line breaks and your home starts filling up with dangerous, flammable gases? You'll need a gas shutoff tool in order to turn the gas valve.

 Or what if someone is trapped under debris in a locked room? You'll need a prybar or a sledgehammer to get through the door and reach them. Or what if you need lifesaving medicine that is behind lock and key in an abandoned pharmacy? You'll need a lockpick to get inside.

 That's just a couple of examples of tools you might need to survive an urban disaster. If you live in the city, you'd be wise to get these tools ahead of time so you'll have them when you need them. Here are nine urban survival tools to get before it's too late...

The protests have become riots, the riots have become looting... and now innocent people are being beaten in the street.

But as bad as that is, it's about to become worse... because the rioters say they're headed to the suburbs to "take what's theirs."

Outrage is the natural response to the brutal killing of George Floyd. Yet outrage and clear, critical thinking seldom go hand in hand. An act of police brutality became the catalyst for a revolutionary mood. Protests spilled over into violence and looting. Stores were destroyed; policemen and civilians injured and killed. The truism “black lives matter” was joined by a senseless slogan: “Defund the police.”


America is now a failed state - must-read details of the collapse

The collapse is here. America is now a failed state, where there is no rule of law, no due process, no free speech, no functioning markets, no political leadership, no equal protection under the law... and what comes next will be infrastructure failures and food supply disruptions.

It's time we all honestly embraced the reality of where we are in the great arc of history. Otherwise, we won't be able to defeat the evil forces that are trying to destroy this nation.

If it isn't legal to shoot looters, is it legal to tase them with the Taser Pulse that you recommended?
- Ann I
Answer: I’m not a lawyer, but I wouldn’t use the Taser Pulse unless your life was in danger. Most states have laws that life is more important than property. So, you likely can’t tase someone who is looting, you would need to show that your life was in danger.


Today's unsustainable way of life is ending. Get ready for what comes next.

The coronavirus pandemic has placed such intense and unexpected strain on this unstable house of cards that its odds of toppling sooner have increased substantially. Few people understand this better -- from the historic job destruction impacting tens of millions to the social anger starting to boil over -- than James Howard Kunstler. His new book Living In The Long Emergency (which builds on its classic predecessor) not only predicted what's happening now, but lays out what life in the aftermath will be like and how to best position for it today.

We've received intel that Black Lives Matter terrorists have been given orders to engage vehicles with gunfire, and just yesterday, three people were shot by BLM terrorists shooting into vehicles.
One of the shooters has already been arrested and charged in Provo, Utah. They are all BlackLivesMatter radical terrorists, all supported by Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Target, Google and other corporations, and they are being funded by corporations to purchase heavy weapons that are now being used to shoot innocent Americans
