Also, knives can be a good self defense item.

#6: Use stun guns and Tasers

Also with stun guns and Tasers, there is legislation that you need to check out to see if it is indeed legal in your state. So, do your homework well before you pick this option.

#7: Join a physical self defense class

Self defense is going to be an invaluable skill. So, think about these 7 ways to defend yourself without a gun. Because after all – not having a gun means that you are at a lesser risk – and you will not end up mortally injuring any person – particularly by accident!
