buy a taser with non-lethal voltage. carry pepper spray. if you’re really that worried about being attacked on the street, get something else to defend yourself or take a defense class. guns are not the answer to everything
Said no one who had to defend themselves at any point in their life. (via cerebralzero)
Hey now, that would be way too brutal, that’s why gun grabbers were so kind to ban pepper spray and tazers in Britain, too. Can’t have the filthy peasants defend themselves, after all.
You can kill someone with a 1.5V AA battery, though (and no I don’t mean by shooting it at them, darn it). It’s all in how the electrodes are applied and where the current goes. Voltage, in general, simply helps overcome the resistive properties of the tissue. Electric potential between any two (ungrounded) objects can easily be in the tens of thousands of volts…
