Why The Nonlethal Self Defense Option Is So Important

Picture your wife or a loved one coming out of a pleasant experience at the local mall and walking to her car. Because she has been married to you for so long and heard you preach about assaults on women in parking lots, she is already mindful of her surroundings with her eyes scanning right and left just like she was taught.

Suddenly from behind, a man asks her what time it is. She became suspicious because there is a big clock in the middle of the parking lot that has four faces on it, one for each direction. So she reached into her purse for her keys. Attached to the key ring is a potent pepper spray. With her keys and pepper spray in hand you turn around and see the man approaching rapidly. You tell him to “back off” but that doesn’t seem to stop him.

Your adrenalin is in high drive by now.

He continues to advance towards you, so you fire a warning shot of pepper spray in the air. But this guy has a one track mind. He wants to either perform a sexual assault or get your purse or both. Even though you feel very threatened by him, you take aim with your pepper spray and give him a shot in the face. His screams of pain draw attention to your situation and you are all of a sudden surrounded by strangers who want to help.

One of the strangers calls 911, the police respond quickly and the man is hauled off to jail. A disaster is averted because of your quick reflexes and training. Oh, and a little pepper spray helped!

This is a good example of the type of situation that happens literally on a daily basis where lives are at risk. But the man had no weapon that could be seen, so the nonlethal alternative was far preferable to the deadly force of a handgun.

There are actually very few cases where a self-defense response of deadly force is appropriate. In most cases the nonlethal alternative is the answer because it can disable any assailant for as long as 30 to 45 minutes giving you time to escape a dangerous situation and seek help. Pepper spray can provide personal safety and self-defense better than a handgun in most cases.
