Self-defense for senior citizens is something I take very seriously as my mother, who lives alone, is now a senior citizen and I am always worried about her safety. She lives in an upper-middle class neighborhood and has never been the victim of a violent crime. And to my knowledge no houses on or around her block have been the victim of a break in in recent history but just the same it makes no sense for her not to be prepared. Not being prepared because you live in a good ‘neighborhood’ is much like driving around without a seatbelt because you’re a safe driver and have never been in an accident. Bad things happen and they can happen anywhere at any time to anyone. It is foolish to assume that you or anyone else is immune from becoming the victim of an assault, especially senior citizens.
The simple fact of the matter is that senior citizens cannot as easily defend themselves as they might have been able to in their younger days. So why would a senior (or anyone for that matter) not take a very simple and affordable step toward ensuring their own safety and the safety of their loved ones by acquiring a small, easily-carried stun device?
Stun guns are a non-lethal means of self-defense that are legal in all but 8 backwards-thinking states. They work by emitting a high-voltage, low-amp current of electricity to the attacker and disrupting the attacker’s natural neuromuscular functions. In short they make the attacker cease and desist all attacking as they will have no control over their own body. Shocking someone until the lose control over their own motor functions may sound inhumane but let us remember two things, A. We are talking about an individual who has taken it upon himself to attack a seemingly defenseless senior citizen and B. In almost all cases the recipient of a shock from a stun gun is left with no permanent damage whatsoever. To me that sounds about as humane as a weapon of self-defense can be. In very rare cases a stun device has proven fatal but any device that is going to be effective in stopping a violent crime is going to come with an inherent risk of danger for the person cowardly and stupid enough to attack an innocent senior citizen.
So if you are concerned about a loved one’s safety or a senior citizen yourself (especially those living alone) please consider contacting a stun gun dealer online about protecting yourself with a stun device.
