The Lint Roller – The Missed Improvised Weapon?
Is my granddaughter a genius? She showed me an ingenious way to use a lint roller as an improvised weapon, and I couldn’t help but laugh!
Many people ask about using gadgets, devices, and other items as potential improvised weapons or tools for self-defence.
The most effective solution I’ve found is to rely on the resources that are naturally available to us: our bodies! There are no shortcuts when it comes to our safety. Unfortunately, far too many people rely on gadgets, thinking they will provide them with the protection they need.
However, this is a misguided belief. While one might learn how to use devices in some cases, they should only do so after educating themselves on how to avoid violence, how to de-escalate conflicts verbally, then how to use their body before adding any external devices.
Furthermore, they should always familiarize themselves with the laws and regulations surrounding these devices in their local area.
The risks of relying too heavily on devices can be severe. So before you start trusting in “self-defence products,” focus on honing your innate talents and abilities. Doing so will give you a much more solid foundation of self-assurance than any gadget ever could.
