A Women uses a stun gun for self defense
I’ve always lamented why more people don’t use self defense products. They are inexpensive, easy to use, and can save you from serious injury or even death. Case in point; A Las Vegas woman fought off her boyfriend with a stun gun.
Las Vegas police confirmed that Allen J. Stout, 36, threatened the women with a gun before she immobilized him with her stun gun. He was later shot by police him after he pointed the firearm at them. Stout was taken to University Medical Center for treatment and later booked into the county jail, police said.
Apparently the woman was in the apartment she shared with Stout at 2 p.m. when he forced his way in through a window, grabbed her by the hair and bit her. She ran outside, but Stout knocked her to the sidewalk, pounded her head into the concrete and choked her until she felt like she was going to pass out, the report said.
Stout pulled a handgun, threatening to kill the woman and himself, before she pulled out a stun gun and shocked him several times, the report alleges. When Stout dropped the gun, the woman threw it away and ran.
Potential threats don’t always come from some unknown person in a dark alley. Sometimes they come from people we know and are supposed to trust. For the cost of a meal, you can significantly reduce your odds of becoming just another statistic.
