LAWS REGARDING SELF-DEFENSE, DEFENSE OF PROPERTY, AND WEAPONS, AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LAW, VARY WIDELY. OBTAIN COMPETENT LEGAL ADVICE BEFORE OBTAINING ANY WEAPON AND BEFORE COMMITTING AN ACT OF SELF-DEFENSE OR PROTECTION OF PROPERTY. SELECT AND USE URBAN SURVIVAL EQUIPMENT, SUPPLIES AND TECHNIQUES AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Every country, state, county, city and town has laws, both written and un-written, as well as policies, that can affect your options. It is absolutely vital that you understand how that affects your personal situation. We suggest that you speak to an attorney or other competent licensed legal authority where you live to find out what your rights and responsibilities are. Do not ask the cop on the corner, do not ask your friend, and please don't ask us.
It is the sole responsibility of the READER (not Equipped To Survive Foundation, Inc., the publisher, editor or authors) to ascertain, interpret and obey all applicable local, state, federal, foreign, international and/or any other laws which govern the transportation, possession and use of any weapons, tools, self-defense gear and self-defense and protection of property techniques that may be included on this Web site.
Neither Equipped To Survive Foundation, Inc., the publisher, editor nor anyone else whose information may be included on, or linked to, this Web site can attest to or endorse the safety of using any equipment, supplies, services, or techniques evaluated or referred to herein.
