“He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security.”
One’s right to own and bear arms is clearly stated in our Constitution in the second amendment. We are used to taking that right for granted because it’s always been that way, for as long as we’ve been a country. Unfortunately, it’s no longer that easy.
Fast forward to 9/11.
Since then, we’ve entered a completely different era. Now personal liberty and individual rights are being disregarded by collectivist and totalitarian ideas about “the greater good for the greater number”, and “trading individual rights for the greater security provided by Big Bro”. These are ideas which were proven wrong time and time again in recent history, but we just don’t seem to learn.
We’re living in scary times, in which our elected tyrannical government (the bolded word was mentioned in the Declaration of Independence also) tries hard to limit our rights day after day, passing laws that defy the Second Amendment. They’re relentlessly working to associate legitimate gun owners with domestic terrorism via a massive propaganda campaign in mass-media and even Hollywood movies.
Since not every state in the US allows people to carry (open or concealed) firearms on their person to protect themselves, in this article we will take an alternative crash course in 5 fatal and inconspicuous self-defense weapons that you can own. You already carry most of them without a license or being bullied by the forces who vowed to defend and uphold the values written by our founding fathers in our Constitution.
Check them up and learn to properly use them for your own defense!
1. The Scarf
Let’s start with one of the most improbable (and fatal) self-defense weapons, namely the humble scarf.
We all know what a scarf is and what it’s used for by regular folks. Now, if you’re a professional hit man for the mob or a maybe a ninja, you may know the domestic and harmless looking scarf as a garrote, because that’s what you can use a scarf as. You can use it to strangle a person, using the scarf as the means to a “fatal” end.
I know it sounds like a James Bond movie, but with a little bit of training and technique, you can use a scarf as a fatal self-defense weapon. Soldiers and Special Forces members are using improvised garrotes regularly (for hundreds of years) as a silent mean of assassination. As a matter of fact, elite soldiers from the French Foreign Legion made a name for themselves in this niche.
Just take a look at clip and you’ll get the general idea about how to use a scarf as a garrote/self-defense weapon, but you’ll require serious training if you want to master this ancient technique flawlessly.

2. The Pen
My second choice for a potentially fatal self-defense weapon that can be used anytime and anywhere without the slightest chance of detection is an item carried by most of the people on a daily basis: the pen.
