Self Defense. It’s so Easy, Even a Caveman Could do it.

Self Defense. It’s so easy, even a Caveman could
do it.
And no disrespect to our Neanderthal brethren.
They carried some big clubs and spears back in the
Paleolithic day. I would challenge any of today’s
breed of criminal to play woolly mammoth and go
toe-to-toe with a caveman and see what happens.
But today, walking down the street with a huge [...]
