Ways To Defend Yourself ( Without A Gun) If Someone Breaks Into Your Home.
It is horrible if we are home and someone, or more then one, breaks into our home and tries to rob us. However there are several ways we can defend ourselves and our loved ones without using guns.
There are some areas that are more dangerous then others, so if you live in a dangerous neighborhood, you may have to put heavy locks on your door. Heavy locks make it extremely difficult for a robber to gain access to your house or apartment. Safety can be your number one policy if you live in a dangerous neighborhood. It might seem like there are too many locks on the door on the right, but it is better to have a lot of locks on the door, then to have someone break into your house.
When you first move into your new home, change all the locks. Locks are not that expensive, but keeping your family is worth more then all the money in the world!
There are people who hide keys under door mats, flower pots, or even fake rocks. However, door mats and fake rocks, and flower pots are the first place robbers look, when they try to break into your home. Instead of trying to hide your key, give it to a neighbor you trust. That way, when you come home, your key has been safe and so has your home.
Also, use an alarm code. Alarm codes always detect a person breaking into your home. They will call you first, but if you do not answer, they will call 911 and the police will come to your home.
Put the sign outside! That will show everyone you have an alarm inside your house. They will know your house is harder to break into.
Dogs are good, even if they are small. If you are not allergic to them. A barking dog makes a lot of noise. That is the last thing a person breaking into your house wants to hear. A barking dog makes so much noise, believe me, I have two of them. The person breaking into your house doesn't even know if the dog bites or does not bite. But, the still dog makes too much noise.
If you are going away for a few days, make sure you stop your mail. And have a program where your lights go on at night, and off during the day. It might not be perfect, but it is better then leaving your lights off for a long period of time.
However, sometimes people do break into your house when your are at home. When that happens, it is a very horrible and dangerous thing. But don't use a gun. Guns are very dangerous, and can be taken away and used on you.
There are other things you can use on anyone who breaks into your house. Some have said Wasp Spray is one of the ways to defend yourself at home, but that is NOT true. While it will harm the person who is invading your home, it will also harm you and the ones your are trying to protect. Besides using wasp spray is illegal. Wasp spray has never been tested on humans.
Pepper Spray comes in multiple sizes and is incredibly strong. It can even be carried in your purse. Using Pepper Spray is a very good way to defend yourself and your family
However, Pepper Spray is not the only product available to defend yourself, your family, and your home. There is a product called Bear Spray. This was created to defend a person from bears. But, people are starting to use it on people who are attacking them. It is legal to use in the United States and can be bought online in several popular web sites.
If an intruder is sprayed with Bear Spray, he will be unable to defend himself and the police can take him to jail very easily.
So, as you know, there are ways to protect your home, your family, and be safe without using a gun. A gun can be taken from you, and you can be killed by a gun, but not by pepper spray.
You can carry Pepper Spray into a bank, you can carry Pepper Spray into the grocery store. You can carry Pepper Spray anywhere you go.
These are only a few ways to keep you home safe and to keep you and your family safe.
