Self Defense Tools

I’m not telling you to carry a gun. That’s an individual decision that you have to make with your lifestyle, people around you, and local laws. With that said, in emergencies, the veneer of civility can erode pretty quickly and bad things can happen fast.

I always carry a knife. Often, I find that the same people who seem a little weird about it end up borrowing it to open a package or a bottle. There’s a lesson in that: incorporating tools that you can use often makes you a lot more apt to have them with you when you need them.
