3 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Owing Guns For Self-Defense

3 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Owing Guns For Self-Defense

Among various means of protection and personal safety measures, carrying guns is also one good way to ensure personal safety and self-defense measures. Owning a gun for a self-protective and defensive purposes actually is quite different than owning a gun to fight crime and criminals, such as those being used by police and military men.

The first question that you need to ask, however, before thinking of acquiring a gun as a means of self-defense, is would you or could you kill somebody with your gun in an act defending yourself in case some untoward incident would happen?

1. Understanding your purpose

Obviously, we need to first understand self-defense, the true meaning and the circumstance in which case having a gun would be worthwhile for own personal safety and the safety of the family. If we are just dealing with minor thugs, guns might not be an answer. Instead, installation of various alarm systems such as home alarm systems or latching up the bolts in windows and doors will be enough to solve the problem of such burglary.

But what if you are dealing with armed criminals who are intruding to your home and posing a significant risk to your own personal safety and to the safety of your loved ones?

Especially if you are situated far from the densely populated area where emergency help will take some time to reach you, guns might be considered a good way of making sure that we are protecting our loved ones. Use of guns in defensive purpose might not only save your lives but will also help avoid unfavorable circumstances. If you shoot the gun in the air, wouldn’t any intruders be alarmed enough to lose interest to risk their lives just to break in your house? That’s exactly what the defensive purpose of guns work like.

2. Gun ownership is not cheap

It is very expensive, especially when we talk about getting appropriate or revoking suspended license for the gun. It definitely costs much more than just installing a home alarm or maintaining a dog as a means of protection of your house. However, gun adds as a self-protective measure to a large group of the population and are often used by many political figures personally or through their bodyguards.

3. It is not meant for violence

It needs to be reminded, though, that gun ownership doesn’t mean the owner goes to fight the criminals. This is not allowed as well. There are some rules that need to be adhered and followed before the government authority issues you a permit. Firstly, getting a license to get a gun is a hard work. Getting a license for a gun is different from state to state and you may have to complete firearms safety course, submit your application along with fingerprints, and get your license. Only after you get a license will you be able to legally own a gun.

However, as seen in a large population, gun ownership is actually just a self-protective means. Once a gun has been acquired, what most people tend to do with it is just keep the gun in a drawer, in a safe deposit or tactical backpack where they can stash money, or similar location just to use it in an emergency life-threatening condition for personal safety and self-defense use.

In summary, a gun is a pretty effective means of ensuring a personal safety. However, one thing to be noted is the gun in itself is not an evil. It is how a person uses it that makes it a useful tool or an evil castaway. So if you plan to keep a gun for your personal safety, make sure you are using it at an extreme of self-defense.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
