Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island do not allow stun guns to be carried by citizens. As the owner of an e-commerce business that sells stun guns, I do not agree with such laws. Every 17 seconds there is a violent crime committed in America. A woman is unfortunately raped every 45 seconds. With satistics like these, I strongly believe we all should have the right to protect ourselves.

I would love to hear your thoughts…

It seems like every time I turn on the T.V. or listen to the news pepper spray and stun guns are making the big time!

DERRY, N.H. — A man attempting to rob a convenience store in Derry demanded cash and got a face full of pepper spray.

The man entered the Store just after 3 p.m. and motioned that he had a weapon in his waistband and immediately demanded money. The store owner said, “I wasn’t nervous because a similar robbery four months ago prompted someone to give me a gift.  I wasn’t scared, my friend gave me pepper spray, so that I can save myself.  I put the pepper spray to good use and sent the would-be robber running out the door. I am hoping other criminals eying my store will now think twice. I am completely convinced that pepper spray is the perfect personal safety product for deterring people from robbing my store.”

San Diego, CA
A would-be kidnapper grabbed a jogger today but released her when she blinded him with pepper spray, according to San Diego police.
The 26-year-old would-be victim was running at about 12:30 p.m. when a blond-haired man who appeared to be in his 30s pulled up next to her in a faded red older-model pickup truck and made several attempts to engage her in conversation.  The woman refused to respond and kept running. When she reached a cul-de-sac, the stranger steered into a driveway in front of her, blocking her way, and got out of the vehicle.
The jogger tried to get around the man by running out into the street, but he followed and grabbed her arm forcefully. She then sprayed the pepper spray at his face, prompting him to let her go. As the woman ran away to call the police, the assailant drove off to the east.

Pepper Spray demonstration hits the local news in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Here you have it, folks: pepper spray or mace, whatever, does work.
Do you see how simple it was for this woman to get rid of her assailant/kidnapper just by spraying him with her pepper spray?
She was likely scared and shaken but resolute and prepared.
All she needed to do is to take out her spray, face her attacker and press the button.
Then she had time to escape the danger and call the police. Good for her!

What about you? Got Pepper Spray already?
Get it for yourself, buy it for your girlfriend, send it to your daughter in college.
Make an oath to carry it and use it instantly when in danger. If you got it for your loved ones, take their word they’ll carry it at all times and use it without hesitation.

This blog is a tribute to my customers, who have become my new friends.  They have helped pull me through some of the headaches of starting a new business.

I have spent countless hours on the phone with crabby support people getting things set-up.  My site crashed for (2) days.   My credit card was declined interrupting my AdWords campaign.  To top things off, I spilled coffee on my keyboard.  Trust me, I am not complaining.  However, I do have many days that I ask myself, “what the hell am I doing?”

I did one thing right, for certain. And that was put my direct phone line on the website.  I was worried I might get calls in the middle of the night asking me if lipstick pepper spray came in fuchsia.  But the phone calls have been the best thing to happen.

One month into my new business adventure, www.securityproductsamerica.com  and I am proud to say I am making new friends with my customers across the country.  They are eager to help me and offer advice.

Here are a few examples.

Melva from California loves her new Zap Cane.

She had this to say, “If I were marketing this product I would also pitch it as a good gift for a parent or elderly relative, for Hanukkah/Chanukah and Christmas, plus birthdays and Mothers & Fathers day.”

She said I could do a separate video for hikers on the wilderness trails to deter wild animals, even snakes.  She closed by saying, “It was great speaking with you…I wish you much success.  and it’s nice to know someone is proactive in customer service these days”.

THANK YOU MELVA! 

My new old-timer buddy Bob from Tennessee ordered a ZAP CANE STUN GUN and literally calls me daily to discuss product enhancements and new products ideas.  Don’t mess with Bob, he is trying to add a knife to the end of the cane.  I guess 1 million volts is not enough power for him!  I truly think he just likes to talk with me, but that’s o.k.  For my time &  efforts, Bob sold (5) more ZAP CANE’S to his poker buddies!  A LITTLE SHOUT OUT TO BOB FROM TENNESSEE! 

At the end of the day I am thankful for all the feedback I get on a daily basis from my new friends spread out all over the country.  Once again I am glad my direct line is on my site.  The calls from customers put a human element to an e-commerce business.

I want to thank all my well wishers, Facebook Fans, Twitter followers, as well as my new friends.  Keep the calls and e-mails coming!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

P.S. Everyone needs a Zap Cane.

Welcome to the first blog of my new adventure, Security| Products| America.  After many nights (or years for that matter) of twiddling my thumbs, I finally decided to take a leap of faith and move forward with a plan to work with my dad.

Yep, that’s right, I decided to work with a family member!   For starters,  when I say my dad is extremely old-fashioned, check this out.

  • E-mail….He says, “why bother when I have a fax machine”.
  • Excel spreadsheet….”why bother when I have an endless supply of paper to write on”.
  • Contracts…He says, “why bother, when I shake a man’s hand and give him my word that is my contract”.

To most of you paranoid litigious people out there this may sound crazy.  However, what I have learned over the years about my dad’s so-called “crazy” philosophies made me wish we still lived in a society where a simple handshake and your word actually meant something.

I have talked to a handful of my dad’s friends over the last few weeks, (By the way, all of the people my dad has done business with over the years are all considered close friends) and what I learned about my dad was simply amazing.  The old guy from New York told me, “I have been working with your father for 25 years.  He is like a son to me. To this day, the only contract we have is a handshake”.  An associate from Arkansas told me, “heck, your daddy is like a father to me.  He’s a pain in the ass because he faxes me invoices and orders that are hand written on legal paper, but let me tell you something, they don’t make ’em like your daddy anymore.  There isn’t anybody out there that I trust more than your daddy”.

I guess being old fashion and true to your word really means something.  For me, what I continue to learn about my dad and how he has conducted business over the years sealed the deal.  Like my dad always says, “dive deep and come out dry”.  Wish me luck!

I would love to hear feedback on our new business website.  When you get a chance, check it out!  www.securityproductsamerica.com
