Many people when they think about defending their home think about : What gun do I use, shotgun, pistol or rifle? Will it stop someone in time? Will there be over penetration? What about the kids if I'm not home? And a lot more, more then can be listed. One question that is rarely asked is: ( In a clean self defense shoot, no legal repercussions. ) I just killed someone, now what? You must live with that the rest of your life, or, heaven forbid, your child has to, you were not home. This thought can and has prevented victims from defending themselves effectively. Having had kids at home and not being a blood thirsty, heartless psycho., we came up with an alternative, keeping the lethal defense as a possible 2nd choice. A large can of Spectracide WASP & HORNET Killer by all exterior doors, in the kitchen and many other locals around the house. Anyone from a child (old enough ) to adult can use it, no laws ( in ANY state ) regulating use or possession, and 90% non-lethal,( most people that see it ask if we have wasp problems) Effective from 20 feet, it shoots a straight stream of concentrate. You can even get it at Wal Mart. It will temporarily blind the " Perp"and send them screaming away in extreme pain, eyes burning like fire, and difficulty breathing as well. If used, the police will have no trouble finding the " PERP", just check the emergency rooms for someone suffering from " pesticide poisoning", they will be VERY sick, half blind and thinking that they are dying. Clean up is easy to. Anyone have other effective alternates for the home, child friendly of course, please post. The last thing most of us want is to kill someone, even in self defense.
