Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
Personal protection has become a major issue in American society, thanks in part to the violent firearm crimes that have occurred in recent memory, according to the latest SurvivalLife.com article. Smart preppers need to know that guns aren’t the first and last line of defense, nor are they the only way to acquire food in times of emergency.
The article said there is a huge range of tools and items that can be used as weapons for personal protection, and 21 of them are detailed in SurvivalLife.com's newest Special Report, “How to Make and Use Primitive Weapons.”
Events like Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut and the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting have increased the conversation about gun rights, gun accessibility, and overall gun control, said the article.
Original survivalists, from the cavemen of prehistoric times to the Viking explorers of more recent history, didn’t have the luxury of waltzing through the aisles of a gun superstore and choosing heavy artillery to fend off enemies or wild animals.
The article said the Special Report teaches the importance of some simple and easily-constructed weapons. “How to Make and Use Primitive Weapons” advises people on using unlikely things like exercise equipment, rocks, glass, string, and any number of other items that could easily be found around a home or in nature.
The Special Report not only shows how to fashion these primitive weapons, but it also trains people how to use them should they need protection. The article said disaster preparedness should always involve the safest and most reliable means of self-defense. A major catastrophe can unfortunately turn neighbors into enemies, according to the online piece.
Plus, the article said that in a post-disaster world, things like guns and ammunition will be at a premium, if they are accessible at all. A knowledge and skill set surrounding homemade weapons will give people a stronger sense of confidence, and a better chance of surviving anything, said the article.
