Campus Safety: That’s what we do at blingsting

School’s back in session, and that means so many more opportunities to nail being safe and cute at the same time.  Of course ,campus safety is a huge issue facing many colleges around the country … it’s always in the news and from what we found out at University of Texas recently, it’s always on a girl’s mind. And some campuses are safer than others, but you can never be too careful. Lawstreetmedia.com adds that the top offenses on campuses are forcible sexual offenses, robbery, and aggravated assaults, and even sometimes murder.   They also ranked the most dangerous campuses in the country.

  2. University of California at Berkeley
  3. Illinois State University
  4. Harvard University
  5. University of Hawaii at Manoa
  6. Pennsylvania State University

  8. Northern Arizona University
  9. University of Southern California
  10. University of Michigan

That being said, blingsting is on it.  We are starting small and heading out to schools around our home state of Texas to spread the word:  safety doesn’t have to be ugly!  Campus safety can actually be semi-fun and by being engaged and excited about your pepper spray, you take the first step in becoming more aware of your decisions.  Many of the girls we spoke to at UT said they always have safety on their mind when walking on campus at night, coming home from the gym or the library.  They also told us that partying (while totally fun) is a dangerous part of life in college.  We agree.  We remember.

We had a blast at Texas and will continue to visit other campuses to show girls that campus safety is always priority numero uno.  Fortunately, the girls absolutely loved the blingsting – and we had lots and lots of interest, which is never a bad thing.  Here’s a little bit of what we heard, when we asked them what campus safety means to them.

Say hello! to the cutest stun gun ever: The Stunning Gun

Yes, we just had to go there. First it was pepper spray, and now we have set our focus on all things cute and sparkly to the stun gun! And of course it wouldn’t be a blingsting product without a seriously cute name – so say hello to the Stunning Gun! We have shown it at our big tradeshows across the country in the last few weeks and can already tell it will be a top seller in no time. It will be available for purchase on our website in a few weeks (yay!)

I didn’t ever think we’d make a stun gun, but our customers asked for it, so here it is!  For those unfamiliar, a stun gun is simply a device used to immobilize an attacker without causing serious injury, typically by administering an electric shock. So, it’s a positive safety product, just like pepper spray, that won’t cause permanent damage but will deter and deflect a potential attacker if used properly.  They say to really make the most impact, the electric shock should be directed at the face, chest or groin.  Of course the longer the shock is administered, the more disoriented the attacker will become.  And, the sound of the spark alone is enough to cause a scene. It’s seriously loud. Oh and we have tested it on the president of blingsting, Gabe, and it totally works. Plus, it’s decked out in the deep charcoal rhinestones that I call ‘mink.’ Mink is everything, as we all know. New products are SO fun!  Ok – just remember that stun guns are so not a toy, and there are state and local restrictions on ’em – so gotta do your research to make sure you can legally carry one of these little gems.  Most states do require you be 18 years of age (just like with pepper spray).  We have a list of states that we can’t ship the Stunning Guns to right here.
