My She-roes!

Here are my she-roes...

Everyone Can Use This Safeguard!



Disclaimer:   The Renaissance Chick
does not promote or condone the use of
wasp spray to fight off
rapists, robbers or killers.
However, I received
this information in an email
and thought Hmmm.
By Hmmm, 
I am not suggesting. promoting or condoning
the use of wasp spray
to save your life.
Hmmm...
If an intruder or attacker
is stupid enough to come after me,
I will shoot six rounds.
If I miss,
I will pull out my
feminine hygiene spray
and hit him right between the eyes.
I don't think it has a warning
label on it!
I hope the FEDS will come
clean up the mess!
Hmmm....


Self Protection

If   you don't have a gun, here's a more
humane way to wreck someone's evil plans for you.

Did you know this? I didn't. I never really thought of it before.

Wasp Spray
A receptionist in a church in a high risk area  
was concerned about someone coming into the office
 to rob them when they were counting the collection. 
She asked the local police department about using pepper spray 
and they recommended to  her that she
get a can of wasp spray instead.

The wasp spray, they told her, 
can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, 
while with the pepper spray, 
they have to get too close to you and could overpower you.
 The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker 
until they get to the hospital for an antidote. 
She keeps a can on her desk in the office 
and it doesn't attract attention from people like 
a can of pepper spray would. 
She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection.
 Thought this was interesting and might be of use.

Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students 
at Sylvania Southview High School . 
For decades, he's suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet
spray near your door or bed.

Glinka says, "This is better than anything I can teach them."

Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, 
and more effective than mace or pepper spray. 
The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; 
so if someone tries to break into your home, 
Glinka says "spray the culprit in the eyes". 
It's a tip he's given to students for decades.








It's also one he wants everyone to hear. 
If you're looking for protection, 
Glinka says look to the spray.

"That's going to give you a chance 
to call the police; maybe get out." 
Maybe even save a life!
