With the likes of multimillionaire, overweight agitprop movie producer Michael Moore calling for violence against “the rich”, it’s certainly a good time to think about personal protection, because, more than likely, it won’t be rich guys like Michael Moore who get threatened by members of the lunatic fringe, it will be regular schmoes like you and me.
After much research and personal experience, I can whole-heartedly endorse the Kimber Pepper Blaster* as the best solution to the problem of what to carry for protection against everything from muggers to grizzly bears, and, lately, mountain lions. More than likely, you’re never going to use this thing, but you should have something on your person at all times. At the very least, make sure your daughter carries one. They are cheap (around $39.95 or less), lightweight, they won’t go off accidentally in your pocket or purse, plus they have a shelf-life of at least 6 years.
Best of all, unlike a pistol, if you’ve made a mistake, and it was just your brother sneaking into the house, not a burglar? He’ll be really pissed off about getting sprayed but he won’t be dead!
