Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Gun Owners

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 26 June, 2008

The Second Ammendment, written more than 200 years ago says, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Individual Americans indeed have a right to own guns, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday for the first time in history, striking down an extremely strict gun control law adopted 32 years ago in Washington, D.C. The previous ban included a ban on private handgun possession and the requirement that all firearms kept in your home must be unloaded, disassembled or bound by a trigger lock.

“Unlike the elitist view that believes Americans cling to guns out of bitterness, today’s ruling recognizes that gun ownership is a fundamental right — sacred, just as the right to free speech and assembly,” Republican presidential candidate John McCain said.

McCain rightly applauded this ruling and criticized his Democratic presidential opponent Barack Obama for comments he made back during the Primary political campaign.

“I have always believed that the Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to bear arms,” Obama said, “but I also identify with the need for crime-ravaged communities to save their children from the violence that plagues our streets through common sense, effective safety measures.” And what safety measures might these be?

For many decades, the proper interpretation of the Second Amendment has been argued whether it guarantees the right to bear arms to individuals or to citizens in a militia.

Justice Antonin Scalia say a citizen may prefer may prefer a handgun for home defense because “it can be pointed at a burglar with one hand while the other hand dials the police.”

This landmark ruling paves the way for reconsideration of other weapons control legislatation including other gun restrictions in other areas other than D.C., as well as those affecting other means of self defense such as pepper spray, stun guns and tasers.

Hopefully all law abiding citizens will soon have the luxury or owning whatever means of self defense they are comfortable with carrying from non-lethal options, to less-than-lethal, and up to lethal weapons if the situation so warrants it.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in Safety,
Rob

Man Hides Inside Woman’s Sofa, Waits for Her to Come Home

Posted by Rob on Friday, 20 June, 2008

This story out of NY is rather creative, in a creepy stalker-esque kind of way. A man in Newburgh, NY actually carved out a space in the back of a woman’s sofa, hid in the hole he created, and waited for her to come home. Apparently the woman felt a bump in the couch cushion while she was sitting down.

Earlier that day, she filed a complain about the man and was luckily talking on the phone with her friend when the man was discovered. She jumped up and the man emerges from his makeshift hiding place and knocks the cell phone out of her hand.

The woman was worried he might be there and she had asked the friend to stay on the line and call police if something went wrong. When the police arrived, they found the man and woman arguing on the apartment’s balcony. Fortunately, nothing tragic happened during this particular encounter.

To prevent a similar invasion or privacy, the TeleSpy is a clever and reliable combination of a telephone, a motion sensor, and a security microphone. Simply enter a phone number you want the system to call and turn the motion sensor switch to on.

If any motion inside the protected area is detected, the phone will call the number. When you answer, you will be able to listen in to what is going on with the amplified microphone. The TeleSpy allows you to decide from a safe location if it is a friend or foe lurking in your home or apartment before you call the police.

The listening period is about 30 seconds and then the TeleSpy disconnects. It will instantly re-arm and continue to silently detect again and again. The TeleSpy operates from any land line phone without costly monitoring company fees, and no false alarm charges.

Get a fair warning if something is not right at home when you are not around. There is no telling what would have happened if the man was armed and planning something more horrible than just wanting to talk. Even being on the phone would not have gotten help to the apartment in time.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in Safety,
Rob

Taser Debate, Round 12337478…

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 19 June, 2008

The following excerpts come from an article out of Dothan, Alabama’s DothanEagle.com. Apparently a guy was stopped for not wearing his seat belt, tried to run from the police officer, got zapped by a Taser, and ended up in the hospital. So of course all these bleeding heart whiners are up in arms.

So lets break down the incident. “…we find this episode troubling, regardless of whether the deputy acted within the scope of departmental policy.” Of course you do…

“The undeniable fact is that a young man who was apparently in good health when the deputy stopped him for a seatbelt violation is now in critical condition at a local hospital.” Ok, let’s get this straight. A Taser is a compliance weapon, classified as Less-Than-Lethal. Not non-lethal. You get legally zapped with a Taser for non-compliance from a police officer, or in self-defense by an average citizen with a C2 that you are trying to rob, injure or otherwise do bad things to. Stop Resisting Arrest. Stop Trying to Hurt Me. No? ZAP!

Illegal use of stun guns, Tasers or pepper spray is not under debate on this post. A criminal can rob 7-11 or a unsuspecting law-abiding citizen with a stun gun, Taser or pepper spray, just as easily as a knife, hand gun, baseball bat, fists or his finger pointing through his jacket pocket. You can not ban every possible weapon in existance with the hopes of curbing violent crimes.

Squirt guns are non-lethal, you will not die from getting shot by a plastic water gun. Regular firearm hand guns are lethal weapons. There is a good chance you will suffer a lethal, deadly or otherwise not nice injury, that has a good chance of resulting in your death. Stun Guns, Tasers and other EMD type weapons are less-than-lethal.

So far, Tasers have not been “directly” linked to causing death immediate death to normal healthy adults. Perhaps “undetermined medical condition that was exacerbated by the Taser shocks” are possible. If your body is loaded up with drugs (you obviously have little concern of your personal well being anyways), a Taser jolt may cause more damage to you. If you have some weird, rare or unknown health, heart, or muscular condition, yes a EMD weapon might injury you more than temporarily. You could just get shot with a sidearm if you prefer…

“Perhaps he had illegal drugs in his possession, as the investigation suggests. Perhaps not. He was unarmed and trying to keep from getting arrested.” Yes, by running away, that is called resisting arrest in most jurisdictions…

“Perhaps he was also intent on harming the deputy. Or perhaps not. Reasonable people cannot condone Mr. Cody’s behavior. If he was not wearing his seat belt, he was breaking the law. If he had drugs, he was breaking the law. When he tried to get away from the officer, he broke the law. However, any person in Mr. Cody’s situation is presumed innocent until proved guilty. Should a fleeing suspect who isn’t a mortal threat to an officer be subjected to the potentially lethal shock of a stun gun? If not a stun gun, then what?”

Again, that is called resisting arrest. he is “presumed innocent until proved guilty” while he is standing there. As soon as he runs away, he is now guilty of resisting arrest. Should the police officer have just given up and said “Darn he is getting away… guess I have to wait for another bad guy…”?

“This matter delivers the inevitable debate about the appropriate use of stun guns like a bolt from the blue. Until the larger argument is settled — and the question will almost certainly be decided by the nation’s highest court — stun guns will cause far more injuries, both to suspects whose physical reaction cannot be fully anticipated and to officers who may rely on a device that may not be 100 percent effective.”

Ok, this use of a taser (not stun gun) was not out of the blue. Officers clearly announce a warning before deploying a Taser. The suspect was fleeing arrest, he was not going to stop. Police officers do not have the time to fully anticipate the physical reactions of some lunatic resisting arrest. Is he going to just run away? Is he going to run 10 feet and then pull a gun? Is he going to run 20 feet and alert 8 accomplices?

If you really want to walk a mile in the shoes of an average police officer and actually have a lick of sense when criticizing them, please sign up to a police academy, get trained, strap on your Taser and put your life on the line day in and day out. Don’t sit there and arm-chair quarterback law enforcement when you really have no clue what goes on and what it entails.

If some thug breaks into your house, or a drunk driver is pulled over before hitting one of your family members on the road, or some other criminal is about to commit a crime that affects you personally – and an officer subdues them with a Taser, I doubt you will be screaming “Don’t Tase Him, Bro!”

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in Safety,
Rob

Heist Turns Sour at Local Lemonade Stand

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 18 June, 2008

I guess once you graduate from stealing candy form babies, your next logical step is ripping off lemonade stands. I mean you don’t want to jump into convenience stories too quickly… you might not quite be ready to take such a big step.

That is just what this 18-year-old in Terre Haute, Indiana did. Allegedly, this guy walked up to a local lemonade stand not too far from his house. Apparently, he noticed business was booming and decided to take advantage of the young entrepreneurs running the street-side business?

“The guy came up and was, like, ‘Give me your money,’” said one of the 12-year-old kids who was running the lemonade stand with a group of friends. “I was shocked. It was just my immediate reaction to chase after him.”

The lemonade stand heist temporarily netted the extremely brave robber with a whopping $17.50. Unfortunately the kid chased him down the street and followed him to his house. She promptly called the police who had to spend almost a hour trying convince the tough guy to surrender, but eventually were able to arrest him on a preliminary felony charge of robbery.

“I didn’t think anyone would come up to a lemonade stand and steal. That’s really low,” said another of the 12-year-olds at the stand. The kids expect they will continue to sell lemonade, but this time with an adult standing guard.

The kids should have grabbed a lemon and squirted him in the eyes. It wouldn’t have been quite as effective as pepper spray, but it would have given this creep second thoughts about committing lemonade stand robbery.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Beware: Attack Python on Duty

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 17 June, 2008

A man in Bridgeport, CT as arrested after he attempted to order his 9-foot-long albino python to attack two police officers. Lucky for the cops, pythons rank near goldfish on the pet obedience scale. None-the-less, the 21-year-old man was charged with disorderly conduct and threatening the police after the incident.

The cops were called to investigate a call that the man was threatening his girlfriend with the pet snake. The building superintendent opened his apartment door for the police officers and the man allegedly threatened them with the animal and told it to “Get them!” Although the python did not comply with the order, the man was taken into custody and the python was relocated to the city’s animal control shelter.

I’m sure the officers shared laugh after the incident, it can’t be very often that a lazy “attack” snake is used to protect its owner from authorities. Even with laser sighting, it would be rather hard to taser a 9-foot-long python if it did become aggressive.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

14 Years in Jail and the Cane for Armpit Sniffer

Posted by Rob on Sunday, 15 June, 2008

Sometimes I am not quite sure what to make of some of the news stories I come across. I am thinking this one has a lengthy history and more details would perhaps explain a bit more, but the headline sure caught my eye “Armpit sniffer gets jail and cane”.

Apparently a 36-year-old, mentally-unstable (you think?) man from Singapore was sentenced to 14 years in jail and 18 strokes of the cane. Caning on the buttocks is an additional punishment for male criminals in Singapore for offenses ranging from vandalism, illegal possession of drugs and rape. 24 strokes is the maximum penalty.

Over the the past 15 months, this man molested at least 23 women, smelling their armpits and inappropriately touching them in elevators, staircase landings and their homes. He was caught after a housewife reported him to the police. He was also found to have had several previous convictions for drug and sex-related offenses.

The court issued the lengthy jail term, normally reserved for hardcore criminals, saying the man was likely to commit the crimes again. So many armpits, so little time… 18 strokes of the cane won’t be too pleasant either.

If ever confronted with someone looking to inappropriately sniff your armpits, touch or grab you, lick your toes or whatever worse things these creeps can think of, give them a whiff of something more fragrant… a nice dose of pepper spray

When someone is sprayed with OC pepper spray, the person’s eyes slam shut. Even if someone does manage to get their eyes open, they won’t be able to see because OC dilates the capillaries and causes temporary blindness. Additionally, instant inflammation of the breathing tissues restricts all but life support breathing. No more enjoyable sniffing. They double over and begin to cough uncontrollably. Once your armpit sniffer, or assailant is incapacitated, run to safety and call the police.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Don’t be afraid to spice up your self defense with some pepper spray, stay safe and be prepared!

Yours in Safety,
Rob

Friday the 13th not as unlucky as you thought?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 12 June, 2008

Dutch statisticians, who apparently have had some free time on their hands, have determined that Friday the 13th is actually safer than your average run-of-the-mill Friday.

The Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) has recently concluded that accidents and crime actually occurs less on this widely regarded “unlucky” day. “I find it hard to believe that it is because people are preventatively more careful or just stay home, but statistically speaking, driving is a little bit safer on Friday 13th,” a CVS statistician says.

This study did not report on the probability of being attacked while camping at Crystal Lake or what your chances are if confronted by a hockey mask wearing, machete wielding psychopath named Jason, whether it was Friday the 13th or not.

When statistics aren’t going to protect the physical well being of yourself or your loved ones, check out https://worthprotectionsecurity.com. Even if luck is on your side, I’d prefer a little something extra, just in case.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
Rob

Other Friday the 13th Facts and Superstitions

According to Smithsonian Magazine “fear of the #13 costs American a billion dollars per year in absenteeism, train and plane cancellations, and reduced commerce on the 13th of the month.”

Fear of Friday the 13th dates back to Nordic Mythology. Many of their thirteenth Gods met with violent deaths, such as Loki, the trickster.

Ancient Romans regarded the number 13 as a symbol of death, destruction and misfortune.

There were 13 original colonies.

What is worse than the gas prices? Getting beat up too.

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 11 June, 2008

It is getting uglier at the gas pumps in Cypress, CA where gas is already averaging around $4.50 per gallon. Now consumers have to deal with Road rage, well at least Fuel Rage, as violence broke out at the gas pumps at the Costco warehouse store in Orange County California. A doctor from La Palma was waiting in line to buy gas when another motorist pulled in front of him out of turn. The aggravated doctor grabbed a tire iron from his car and attepted to confront the guy who cut into the line.

Sgt. Tom Bruce said the doctor was arrested for the misdemeanor charge and booked for the investigation of “brandishing a deadly weapon in a rude, angry or threatening manner”.

Witnesses reported the doctor was waiting in line at the pumps this past Monday night when the other vehicle cut in front of him. When the doctor got out of his car and confronted the motorist with the tire iron, the other driver locked himself in his car and called police.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

Self-Defense is a Personal Choice

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 10 June, 2008

I was going through some old notes and found this little
nugget from awhile back, not sure why it didn’t get posted
back in last August (2007), but since it was a pretty good
article, I’ll post it now.

Self-Defense is a Personal Choice, you can choose to take
action, or choose stand by and allow things to happen.

“Three cheers and a replacement bottle of fish sauce for
Ross Vannarith, the owner of a Methuen, MA liquor store who
fought off a would-be robber with the help of his son and a
bottle of the salty condiment.

Vannarith had just returned from the Methuen Package Store on
Route 110 when he saw a man pointing a gun at his daughter
behind the register. Vannarith crept up behind the man and
wrestled him to the ground, where he and his son beat him
into submission with the first thing that came to hand, a
bottle of fish sauce. It was, Vannarith noted later, their
last bottle of the southeast Asian condiment.

Police arrested Douglas Brown of Lowell and charged him with
armed robbery. It took about 40 stitches to close the wounds
in Brown’s head.

Police have not charged the Vannariths with any crime
related to the beating. Nor should they. People have a right
to defend their lives and property.

Vannarith showed courage in taking on an armed robber. But
it was a risky decision. Police usually recommend offering no
resistance to such robbery attempts. A few dollars lost is
far preferable to a life lost.

But it sends a poor message as a society if we simply
surrender to any thug or hoodlum who walks through the door.
If we all offer ourselves as willing victims, there will be
no check on criminals at all.

The decision whether to resist or submit to a criminal’s
demands is an intensely personal one. It depends on an
instant reading of the circumstances and a realistic
evaluation of one’s options. No one knows truly what he or
she would do until faced with the decision in real life.

So while we applaud the bravery of those like Vannarith who
resist the thugs of the world, we in no way condemn those
who choose a more prudent course.

It keeps the criminals off-balance, too. It’s good that
they never know whether they’ll get an easy score or a
beating they’ll not soon forget.”

What do you think you would have done in a similar
situation? The choice is up to you.

Visit https://worthprotectionsecurity.com/weapons.htm
now to take control of a situation before it gets out of
hand. Most of the time, attackers don’t expect you to
fight back, and when you do, you significantly increase the
chance they they will give up or become unsuccessful in
committing the crime to the extent possible.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but
the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth
more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your
belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

Rob
