Imagine yourself walking down the street and out of nowhere, someone is coming straight at you with a big knife. What do you do? This is real and there isn’t a police officer there to protect you. It’s you and a madman intent on killing you or inflicting as much damage as they can to you.
With the rash of violence happening aimed at killing Israelis and the intent of the US government to bring Muslim “refugees” to the United States, it’s not too farfetched to envision this type of scenario happening in one of our own cities. The Israeli government is now telling their citizens to arm themselves and to carry their weapon with them.
Over the past several days, we’ve seen a marked increase in the number of visitors to this from the country of Israel. They are looking for something to protect themselves with and that they can carry with them and use to defend against these abhorrent and unprovoked attacks on their lives.
The telescopic steel baton tops the list of weapons people are checking out to have a self-defense tool they can use on the street. This is a good choice because the baton can block an attack and give a powerful offensive capability as well. Made of steel, it is not a flimsy weapon but a strong and sturdy tool you could use to keep yourself alive.
With one of these, you can block a thrust or a slash and immediately counter with a solid blow to the attacker’s head and body parts. With the crazed mind of someone out to inflict carnage upon you, having an ability to protect, defend, and counter attack can save your life and probably the lives of other people as well.
A telescopic steel baton is fairly inexpensive and it’s very easy to carry with a holster. You can have something that will save your life while providing both defensive and offensive capabilities.
While the steel stick is a good option for most, there is another self-defense tool that I’ve seen used in these horrific videos that can immediately put a machete wielding attacker on the ground. It’s called the TASER and it’s the most effective non-lethal tool available.
Albeit more expensive, the TASER has the ability to immediately take over a person’s body and make it impossible to move. Very easy to use, a laser makes it almost impossible to miss, and the ability to take down an attacker from a distance makes it much safer as well.
While the price tag may put it out of reach for some - and some states don't allow you to possess it - it’s hands down the best option to have when you need to immediately stop someone such as a crazed killer out for blood.
