Try to think of all of the innovative ideas that you and your family encounter every day. You have probably looked at some of them and thought, “Wow, why didn’t I think of that?” Take cell phone stun guns, for instance. These babies are such a neat idea! Talk about a surprised criminal when they try to mug you or attack you, and a cell phone sends 800,000 volts through them. They will literally have no idea what hit them. First, they see a cell phone in your hand, and the next thing they know, they are laying on the ground immobilized. Well, maybe they won’t realize where they are at first, but they will soon get the clue.
Now close your eyes and think of the last time you were in the mall. How many cell phones did you see hanging off the belts of the various shoppers making their way through? Okay, that might be stretching by asking you to remember something like that, but many people do have holsters and clips that they attach their cell phones to themselves with. Now how many of those cell phones hanging off of the hips of shoppers do you think are real? All of them? Maybe, but you’re never going to know just by looking at them.
Can I make phone calls?
Sure, you can put it up to your ear and have a conversation with yourself, but as far as an actual conversation with another human being goes, it isn’t going to happen. It also isn’t going to happen for the cell phone thief who wants to steal your phone off of your hip. Talk about a surprise. The nice little safety pin attached to the wrist strap will sound a nice alarm that will have them dropping your cell phone stun gun and running for cover. Just imagine the look on their face when they think they are going to either sell or make tons of calls with your phone, but instead they are met with a phone that has its own car alarm. It is amazing how many thieves try to steal cell phones off the hips of the unsuspecting. Some are so good at stealing cell phones that most victims don’t know it’s gone, until they realize they haven’t heard it ring or reach for it to make a call.
But you can take comfort in the fact that the tactical design makes the fact it is a cell phone stun gun completely unknown. It is your safety that is important. Too many people make the assumption that some sort of safety device is not needed, but that is entirely untrue. You only have one life, so the necessary means to protect it should be put in place. Don’t have the “these things only happen to other people” attitude, because that is how those other people get hurt.
So who should carry cell phone stun guns?
First off, certain self defense items, such as cell phone stun guns, should be kept away from children. They could hurt themselves or someone else, but as far as everyone else goes, it’s a good idea. Don’t be the unsuspecting person walking to a car at night after work who gets approached by a dangerous psychotic. Have some sort of self defense item with you whenever you are out alone.
So don’t view this as a preaching, but view it as a human being who is concerned with another human being. It is through looking out for each other, by making each other aware, and making products such as cell phone stun guns that’s going to increase the safety of the human race. Just please don’t be the one caught without some kind of protection.
