Lethal weapons, for the most part, are illegal in many places around the globe. Many places in America, Europe, Asia, and South America have a ban on them. Generally, this is done in order to keep the peace, no guns or knives means no gun or knife related issues, right? This is horrible misconstrued, in fact, there are some studies that tighter weapon control can lead to higher rates of assault with deadly weapons.
Nonetheless, one might think there is little that can be done to combat this type of situations. This is far from the case, in fact, there are many ways you can defend yourself from deadly force, while using perfectly legal and nonlethal means. To further help your chances, these items shown below are also easily concealable, making them perfect for urban environments or a surprise attack. Not to mention almost all of these weapons are legal weapons to carry for self defense, in almost every state.
Mace Brand Self Defense Triple Action Self Defense Pepper Spray
We start off this list with one of the most widely favored and used nonlethal self-defense weapons. A pepper sprayer is a canister with several different ingredients that are put under pressure. When a pressure release nozzle is pressed, the contents of the canister are released. The reason why this kind of canister is so effective in deterring aggressors is that the ingredients found within are incredibly irritating to the nose and eyes if they come in contact with them.
Imagine getting chile, pepper, and soap in your eyes all at once. Also try to imagine a very strong irritation, to the point of not being able to breathe correctly, similar to the effect of inhaling smoke. This item is truly the ideal for close quarter situations, as the effective range is within 5-10-15 feet. Although the only drawback is the danger involved with wind blowback or getting some of the sprays into your eyes, so be sure to be careful when using this defensive item.
VIPERTEK VTS-989 – 990,000,000 Heavy Duty Stun Gun – Rechargeable with LED Flashlight
This is another facet of what comes to mind when nonlethal defensive measures are mentioned. Stun guns are rectangular shaped weapons that have electrodes on the top of the item. When activated, this item will emit an arc of electricity. This amount of electricity can vary from model to model, but all quality tazers should both emit electricity in an arc.
This model also comes with four special features, as the item has a steel surface on the top and sides that adds defense against someone grabbing away your tazer. The next function is that this tazer has two extra electrodes that are cone-shaped with a pointed shape, that can better go through multiple layers of clothes.
Another function is an LED light built in underneath the tazer electrodes, for an emergency lighting. Lastly, this item has a built-in rechargeable battery, so no worrying about buying disposable batteries. This item is perfect for close quarter use, with virtually no danger of electrocuting yourself.

Finishing off our list, we have a very different approach to yet another traditional weapon, the baton.

The item itself is composed of two parts, a hard fiber plastic handle, and a spring/stainless steel cable. This item is virtually impossible to discern unless very close and is for that reason, this item is incredibly inconspicuous.
