Mace® Brand Pepper Gel and Stun Device Help Protect Pregnant Teen - Emma's Story


You just never know when you'll need to protect yourself or someone you love. Imagine having to maintain your safety at night and fight off 3 people, one armed with a knife, another with a baseball bat, and you're pregnant!

It's a real life "Survivor Story" for Emma. (At her request, we're not using her real name for the safety of her family.) Her dramatic story unfolded near a large city in Arizona. Emma, 19, says she was driving with her boyfriend, heading out for a bite to eat, when a car suddenly pulled up next to hers. Emma says inside the other car was her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend, who apparently was upset about Emma's current relationship.

Emma says she and her boyfriend tried to drive away, but ended up getting blocked in by the other car in an alley. Her boyfriend decided to jump out of the car and confront the people who cornered them---police would later say that was a bad idea.


Her boyfriend was instantly attacked, so Emma grabbed her Mace® Brand Magnum 3 Pepper Gel, and her Mace® Brand flash stun gun. She was prepared and empowered to defend herself and her loved ones, and that's what she did, in dramatic fashion. Remember, she's four months pregnant.

"They ended up kicking then I got out of the car, I sprayed each of them, then the Mace® affected them and they couldn't see, then I hit all of them with the stun gun," Emma says. "It was enough time for me and my boyfriend to get back to the car and call police."

Police were able to respond. Emma's boyfriend needed medical treatment and suffered a concussion.

"I never thought I would have to use Mace® in my entire life, but it took all three of them down, there was so much gel in the can," Emma says, "I love your product and I am very thankful you make such good products."

Emma's dad is a former prison guard, and he bought the pepper gel and stun gun for her 'just in case' she needed it.

"He was proud of me that I knew how to defend myself, and the best way to react in that situation," Emma says. "He wishes I would never have been in that situation to begin with."

Emma says she is so thankful her dad was smart enough to think about her personal safety. He first started buying her Mace® Brand pepper spray when she was in 8th grade. 


Her boyfriend suffered a concussion, but has fully recovered. The other encouraging news, Emma is the proud mother of a healthy baby girl.

"At the end of the day, it saved my life, my daughter's life, and my boyfriend's life. I will always recommend your product to my friends and family for the rest of my have to have it," Emma says. "With the way the world is today, it's better to be safe than sorry, I tell everybody about your pepper gel."
