A STuNNinG Gift

I received some great Christmas gifts this year and for each, I am thankful.  There is one gift, however, that stands apart from all of the rest.  It isn’t something I can wear to make me look or smell prettier.  It isn’t something I can use in the kitchen to help me whip up a gourmet meal.  It isn’t even something that adds decorative flavor to my home. 

Instead, it provides security.  It gives me a sense of safety.  It gives me the power to protect myself and my loved ones.  No, it isn’t a German Shepard guard dog.  It isn’t a new gun to rival the double-barrel shot gun I already possess.  It’s easier to conceal and easier to use.

It’s The International Body Guard Stun Gun and it packs quite the punch with 6.2 million volts.  They say it won’t kill an attacker instantly, unless they already have a heart condition; but one blast will knock down a 300 pound person, leaving them dazed and confused.  Imagine what two blasts will do!

This little beauty was a gift from my parents, and I can’t think of a more appropriate or loving thing to give a daughter than the ability to protect herself; especially in these tumultuous times. 

See, as good as the police are, and as much as I respect all that they do, they cannot be everywhere. In our world today one’s safety is a matter of personal responsibility.

So… to all of the cult group members and hate group members who have sent me notes warning me to “be careful” or “be quiet before someone makes me be quiet”…. to all of you who are so concerned with my well-being that you have written to tell me to “watch out” or to inform me that “wrath is coming”… to all of you who have told me I would be “better off dead”…  I have taken your advice.

I am armed and I will not hesitate to use my new, ELeCtRiFyinG friend, just as I will not hesitate to use my double barrel shot gun.  
What’s more….your threats have only empowered me toward action.  You will never silence my words.   ~


  1. Way to go, Susan. Love you, your parents for the gift, and just about everything. Happy New Year, my friend.

    Guns don't kill. People kill.

    Take precaution just as our founding fathers did to build this nation.

    Happy safe New Year, to you and your loved ones.

    1. Thanks Charmaine, and I wish you a happy and safe New Year as well. Sending love to you.
