Let’s face it. Very few people are lukewarm in their opinions about guns. Most folks either love them or hate them.
For those of us who love them, we have guns because we want to keep our families safe. If, like me, you’re a woman, a firearm is an equalizer that allows you to take on someone bigger and stronger and still have a good chance of coming out of the situation victorious. And that desire for safety is universal. Even those who don’t like guns obviously want their families to be safe too.
The Salt Gun
Introducing the Salt gun, a device that uses another seasoning, pepper, to deter potential attackers without killing them. It was “designed around the belief that a gun shouldn’t have to take a life to protect a life.”
But…is bringing hot sauce to a gun fight really the best idea?
Maybe it’s just me, but if I am in a situation during which I have drawn my firearm and pointed it at someone, it is for a good enough reason that my first concern is not to avoid hurting them. I’m planning to take them down until they are no longer a threat if they don’t back off when warned.
In theory, it all sounds good, but when you break down the claims in the video, the Salt gun could very likely get someone killed if they depended on it during a life-and-death situation. Here are a few of the issues that I saw with it:
One other issue is the false sense of security that the Salt gun seems to give to people who do not recognize the limitations. Some of the glowing reviews on Amazon underscore this:
It’s important to note that police and the military use pepper guns frequently as a non-lethal way to disperse crowds or take down an offender. But it’s also important to note, they generally employ non-lethal methods when they have a real gun on their hips and other cops to back them up should something go wrong.
The Salt gun is available on Amazon. (Get ready for sticker shock because it’s nearly as much as a real gun.) You can also buy 10 rounds of the pepper bullets for a whopping $50. Wow, and I was just complaining about the price of snake shot ammo.
If you live in a place where you can’t have a firearm or if you refuse to have a firearm, the Salt would possibly be better than nothing at all.
Personally, I’ll stick with my Glock, because I’d really rather not take hot sauce to a gun fight.
