From the Paper:

"With crime on the rise in society citizens have grown tired and have taken measures to protect themselves and their families. These measures include obtaining weapons, equipment, and self-defense classes as means of personal protection. The market for personal protection equipment is a booming industry.
"Equipment and weapons for personal protection and self-defense is a huge industry. Weapons and equipment for self-defense include hand-held mace and pepper spray, tasers, kubatons, hand-held strobe lights, personal alarms, and guns. According to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing website (2010) self-defense weapons are defined by the Jack Hagler Self-defense Act. The act defines concealed weapons or firearms as follows: handguns, electronic weapons or devices, tear gas guns, knives and billies (Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing, 2010, para 4). Personal protection however goes beyond having what are considered to be weapons. Additional methods can be used to protect a home such as the use of CCTV cameras, security systems and simple things such as ensuring that homes have proper locking mechanisms."
