Non-lethal self defense gear in the form of stun guns, pepper spray, kubotans, alarms etc., is often all that stands between a victim of violence and an attacker. The statistics are horrific. 1 in 5 women will be the victim of completed or attempted rape in her lifetime. Those ages 12-34 are the most at risk. Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the US. And that's just sexual assaults, it doesn't account for muggings, car jacking, kidnapping, or other violent crime. Facebooks new "no weapons" policy is not only keeping gun sellers and advocates from discussing guns it is keeping those of us who are striving to protect people through non-lethal means from reaching those who most need our help and it is hurting our businesses. We have got to be able to reach people, to educate them on how to be safe, and to show them how to best equip themselves because doing nothing will not be what saves them in the event of an attack.
