Valentines Day Personal Safety Gifts

Can't find a unique enough gift for your better half? Buy him or her a self defense weapon. What can be more appropriate than to give someone you love, a safety gift that can protect them from violent crime?

Valentines Day is just around the corner and unfortunately, so is crime. Providing your loved one with something as simple as pepper spray or a stun gun, can make a big difference on how secure they feel when they are confronted with personal danger. A non-lethal weapon won't kill someone, but it can stop attackers in their tracks, giving the potential victim, a chance to escape.

Stun guns and pepper spray personal safety weapons also come disguised as other objects. Some look like a regular pen, lipstick, perfume, pager, etc. This is to hide from an attacker the fact that you are actually carrying a personal safety weapon.

Browse through our site and see what you can find for your loved one! If your gift is for a woman, we actually have a heart shaped Perfume Pepper Spray! Perfect for her on Valentines Day. If you are searching for him, the Mace Pepper Spray Baton might suit him, and it also has a convenient key ring. There are many items to choose from. Also, please feel free to call us with any questions.

Hope you have a wonderful and safe Valentines Day!

Susan B. Anthony List, Writes Legislation that Hurts New Hampshire Women

Photo from Wikipedia

New Hampshire is considering getting rid of laws that protect domestic violence victims and is also considering defunding Planned Parenthood. This is a double whammy against women in New Hampshire, especially for low-income women! These laws were written by the Susan B. Anthony List (not to be confused with other Susan B. Anthony organizations) and the Alliance Defense fund.

The House of representatives in the state voted 207 to 147, to prohibit funding from the state to any clinic that provides abortions, which includes Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood, besides performing abortions, also provides breast exams and pap smears among other services in various states. This breaks a forty year stance of New Hampshire to assist family planning services and abortions.

Today New Hampshire is also considering a bill that requires an officer to actually witness a domestic violence incident, in order for him or her to make an arrest. Even if the woman is bleeding or bruised up, the officer cannot take the abuser into custody, unless they come back with a warrant for the domestic violence. Along with this absurd law the state is also voting on a separate law that limits the grounds or reasons for which an officer can arrest an abuser.

Can you imagine what the real Susan B. Anthony, the women's civil rights leader, would have thought about this?

Is Pepper Spray Legal in My State?

We get this question asked many times from people that visit our  WomenOnGuard website. This is a very important question because you can be fined by a law enforcement officer for possessing a self defense spray if it is illegal in your state!

Fortunately pepper spray or mace is legal in most of the United States of America, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico. But there are some states that it is absolutely not allowed and some states that pepper spray and mace is allowed but with some restrictions.

It is forbidden to buy pepper spray or mace from our website in the State of New York. Which is not to say that you can't carry it. You can buy pepper spray from within the state, but not from another state such as ours in Florida! It is New York's way of keeping track of which citizens carry it. You can buy it in New York from a licensed pharmacist or a firearms dealer. However, it IS LEGAL to buy on our website, dog pepper spray and bear pepper spray for New York. Massachusetts also has similar restrictions, but you can only buy it in that state through a firearms dealer. It is not available through pharmacists.

Michigan and Wisconsin are states that also have certain restrictions. To read these, and restrictions on stun devices, such as Tasers, stun guns, stun batons, cell phone stun guns and other disguised stun guns, go to the State Restrictions page of our website.
