Domestic Violence – Don’t Be a Victim, Be Prepared



By Tammy Taser

Let’s face it ladies, every 15 seconds a woman is beaten in this country by her husband, partner, or her boyfriend. The statistics of domestic violence will make your heart skip a beat, and this crime is not going away anytime soon. The psychology of this crime is deep and morbid, something a lot of us cannot comprehend and for others it is, and has been a way of life. Woman’s groups throughout the world have brought this dire topic into the limelight in the last 30 years or so but they have only begun to scratch the surface. We have come a long way just to recognize the seriousness of this problem and in establishing outlets for assistance. There is so much more to be accomplished.

Women first and foremost have to understand they are in fact in an abusive relationship and they are NOT to blame. No matter how they try to change their actions to improve a situation it will not help, their abuser will likely only find fault in the new and supposedly improved efforts. It is their insecurities or learned behavior which is the root of the problem not yours.

There are many facts about domestic violence, and abusive behavior, along with a lot of myths associated with these facts available today. These reports should be noted and read for everyone’s knowledge, because even if you’re not being abused 74% of Americans personally know someone who is being abused or who has been in the past. We all can be part of a solution, by being knowledgeable.

Women account for over 85% of the victims of domestic violence, while it only happens to men about 15% of the time. Women of all races are affected but lower income brackets are at a 3 times higher risk. When the police are called to the scene one in ten times a child is present and has witnessed the violence. This leads to the fact that 30-60% of the children are also being abused by the perpetrator. Urban areas have the highest percentage of violence, compared to rural and suburban areas. Leaving an abuser DOES NOT end the abuse, nearly 70% of the victims are injured again after separating.

Where is all of this information leading? Women need to be proactive when it comes to their own safety and the safety of their children. Women should consider buying a Taser gun, or some other non-lethal self defense items, for their protection and safety. Not just women who are in immediate danger but every woman should have some form of non-lethal self defense. There are no guarantees in life. Where you are right now in your life can change in an instant, not only in your relationship but happenings or events in your everyday life. Your trip to the gym or grocery store could become life threatening.  Are you prepared?

Owning a Taser gun saves lives every day, without the repercussions of shooting a gun.  The Taser gives you effective, powerful protection without the hesitation which occurs frequently when it comes to firing a pistol. The emotional stress of an event is hard enough without dealing with law enforcement should you inadvertently kill the abuser.  The Taser gun is easy to carry and conceal adding a surprise element to its effectiveness.  Do yourself and your family a favor and buy a Taser gun or some other non-lethal self defense product for your assurance.  Here at iZAPmen.com we hope that none of our customers ever has to actually use our products in a situation – but we know that from time to time it certainly does happen.
