Citizens of West L.A. -- protect yourselves with cans of beans and iron skillets!

“The citizens need to know they need to be able to protect themselves because if they call 911, we can’t guarantee we’re going to get there in time to help you,” says Police Protective League President Jamie McBride.

4. ... and bicycle wheels for defense

 

Don't forget, one of our resident "experts" recommended both cans of beans and bicycle wheels that they had used to successfully defend himself from criminals.

Of course he also, in a rare moment of honesty, admitted to having a criminal record that precluded him from firearm ownership too. It also might explain their reluctance to allow home owners to have guns too.

5. LOL.........I actually remembered the 'bicycle part' defense ---

Straight handlebars could be used like a baton, come to think of it!
