So there's been concern lately that people are going to start their own 'Purge' It's probably not going to happen, but here's a list of things you could use to defend yourself and your family.
Machete's are very useful for self defense. They aren't that long (Around 18 inches) and can be bought at Walmart for just 8 or 9 bucks.
Tomahawks are one of the must recommended weapons in case of a zombie apocalypse. This particular Tomahawk has a spike on the back that make it even more lethal.
(1) 12-gauge Shotgun
The shotgun is said to be the most versatile of all the firearms. The shotgun is good for self-defense because of the ammo type. The shells of a shotgun are filled with 'pellets' that spread out when you fire it, making it useful if you don't have the time to properly aim at your attacker.
I hope you enjoyed this post of mine. If you have any self defense weapons in mind that you think should have been on the list let us know in the comments. I DO NOT SUPPORT SENSELESS GUN VIOLENCE! And lately I've been considering supporting the gun ban.
