This was sent to me in an email, and it was interesting enough to post for others to consider. If you don't have a gun, here is a humane way to wreck someone's evil plans for you.
So the email goes……
A receptionist at a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday 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 instead get a can of wasp spray.
The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, miscreants have to get too close to you for the pepper spray to be effective, and they 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. Wasp spray is inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray.
The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone has broken into your home, it is appropriate to spray the culprit in the eyes. The spray is going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out. It may even save a life.
Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake? And a mouse!
