"I remember when I was a kid years ago, you didn't have to lock your doors," recalls Floyd Pollino. "Now it seems like crime is just everywhere, you really can't look at a newspaper or hear the news without hearing about some kind of violence."

but I'm not necessarily for guns. I just see so much violence that involves guns, where the guns end up being used against the owner.

Pollino is the proprietor of http://www.PersonalSecurity4U.com, a site dedicated to offering self-defense products that don't necessarily entail the usage of guns. "I'm not against guns," begins Pollino, "but I'm not necessarily for guns. I just see so much violence that involves guns, where the guns end up being used against the owner."

With two years under its belt, http://www.PersonalSecurity4U.com specializes in firearm alternatives such as stun guns, peppery sprays and personal alarms. The necessity for self-defense items such as these came into Pollino's conscious while he was aiding Hurricane Katrina victims in New Orleans.

"There were one or two murders every day," explained Pollino. "It brought to my attention that I needed to pick up something that would be effective, so I decided pepper sprays, tasers, stun guns and items like that would probably be best….and provide some distance between myself and the person who could attack me. I've concentrated on products that would give that distance and could incapacitate an assailant for a period of time."

While Pollino foresees a brick-and-mortar location for his business, he's also taken the liberty of starting http://www.YourPersonalSafetyBlog.com, a blog which offers tips on defending yourself from would-be-attackers. "The blog will provide information that would help people to avoid situations that might get them involved in some type of violent crime."

Crime may not dissipate entirely, but Pollino's quest to try to make sure that people are safe is a noble one and perhaps, one day, we might not need to carry something like Mace. But for now, stores like http://www.PersonalSecurity4U.com ensure that we can least walk around with a form of non-violent protection.
