Awareness, training and defensive skill building, not to mention
having the proper gear and keeping your gear well maintained, are
extremely important self-defense tools nowadays. We live in an ever-changing and dangerous
world. Our innocent citizens suffer
personal attacks and property crimes much more frequently than ever have
before. In fact, recent news articles indicate that personal attacks and
violent crimes are not just happening in dark alleys and lonesome
streets. Violent attacks are happening more and more at places where we
shop, places of worship, and even in our schools. The bad guys have
become emboldened. Sanctity of human life and respect for others is just
not part of their creed. Many of these crimes could easily go from
simple robberies to kidnapping or violent assault in an instant.
Unfortunately, physical violence is no the only worry - we have to worry
about criminals stealing our identities as well.
Coming soon to Gonzo's Garage will be a wide variety of self
defense, training, preparedness, defense-in-depth, and other related articles and products to help you implement
your own self-defense and preparedness program. The
