On this podcast episode, I discuss some of the options for non-firearm defensive weapons. I also clearly make the point (perhaps droning on a tad too much about it) that using anything other than a firearm is really a substandard defensive tactic. However, there are those times or situations where having a firearm is either impractical or unrealistic, and so, we look at some of the options available.
You can find the list that I reference here: Non-Firearm Defensive Weapons.
I’m not sure if I made it clear in the podcast, but simply having a weapon, whether a gun or some other non-firearm weapon, is not a panacea for security. There are many other factors that make up a good defensive posture including, but not limited to, hardening your home and situational awareness.
To the listeners in other countries, we Americans aren’t obsessed with our guns or gun rights, it’s our freedom that we’re obsessed with. You can’t have real freedom if you’re being repressed from owning firearms. Because I don’t talk about politics much on the podcast, I often fail to bring up that point.
