In our blog post titled "Why Pepper Spray Beats Guns", we started with
the assertion that pepper spray ownership outweighs gun ownership in
most scenarios. Now, while we don't advocate protecting your home
against burglars at three in the morning, we do assert that pepper spray
does serve to be an effective way to protect you in the same ways that
guns are traditionally used. Today, we present a few more great reasons
why pepper spray protection makes sense.
Low cost of ownershipThis reason is self explanatory as guns can easily cost 100 times more
than pepper spray. In addition, with pepper spray there's no
registration fees, background check fees, licensing fees, concealed
weapons fees, lawyer fees...you get the idea. With pepper spray you
simply buy it at a low cost and use it when you need it. No lock box or
shooting range membership required.
Pepper spray saves livesOkay, on to the heart wrenching, in your face reason to use pepper spray
over guns, and that's because pepper spray rarely kills anyone,
including the people you love. Ever heard of a kid accidently blowing
off their head or the head of a friend with pepper spray? Let
mischievous little Timmy find the spray in the closet and decide to play
with it, and worst case he gets to learn a lesson that's not permanent.
Guns rarely have the same result.
Like we said in the beginning, pepper spray is as effective as guns
without the legal and long terms consequences. That's why we'd much
rather take our chances with pepper spray over a loaded pistol any day.
