I keep hearing all this talk about how best to deal with gun violence so allow me to give some input. First off, Gun Control does not work. Banning or limiting guns will not get guns out of criminal hands because they will not follow the law. They don't care, they just want to win and get away with murder. Besides they would simply go to the black market and get their guns anyways. Rules and regulations are just pen and paper so creating more laws will not stop the violent because they don't follow the law. Depending on the police to save you from violence is not enough because it will take around 20 minutes or more for the police to arrive while it will take a bad guy less than a few minutes to commit their violent acts. By the time the police arrived it will be too late.
So what are the solutions to the violence problem? Allow me to make some suggestions:
1- Take a self-defense course that covers basic hand to hand combat and personal safety skills such as The Complete Self Defense System.
2- Buy some security systems for your home and place of business. Also get into the habit of closing and locking windows and doors. Set up your alarms and close your garage doors.
3- Buy a self-defense weapon and get training on how to use it. (If you are in the western Puerto Rico area, I can train you in most self-defense weapons usage except for guns.)
4- Develop a multi-layered personal safety plan. The strategy should have a plan a b c etc. Your strategy should be like an onion that has multiple layers to peel away before you reach the core.
