In CFJXV-5, Cindy Lightheart expanded on that theme, and we published my "For women only--the Lioness Method of Rape Prevention." That increased the interest in what the National Firearms Association was doing, and we received a number of letters requesting that we allow re-publication of both articles, and requesting extra copies of the Lioness. Well over 2000 copies of the Lioness.
Now go to the main text below and see how easy it is to do whatever you want to do with the Lioness--at no cost to you, and, if you choose, at some profit to you.
Most short courses in protection of human life from criminal violence are not very effective. Jabbing car keys at a attacker's eyes doesn't work, because those eyes see them coming. The "knee in the groin" does not work, because men spend their entire lives being protective of their testicles. Their protective and defensive moves are quick and effective. The Lioness concentrates on simple techniques that work.
The Lioness is interesting. It is eight pages that teach a woman how to defeat a rapist or other attacker. The pictures are clear, the text is easy to follow, and the woman student's ability to protect her own life from criminal violence is sharply improved--even if she only reads it. Rapists, you may be surprised to learn, are almost always men who have never won a fight with a man. They are easy to defeat--IF a woman knows how to do it. She can learn enough to defeat almost any rapist in just one hour.
The NFA allows anyone to produce as many copies of the Lioness as he or she chooses, in any manner, in any form, and distribute them, so long as the Lioness is not abridged or altered. The distributor may charge a cost-recovery fee for copies, may include a modest profit, and send no money to the NFA. There is no charge made by us.
The Lioness is written in "Voice of the Instructor." Reading it is like listening to an Instructor teaching the course… so one can read it to learn what it is teaching, or one can read it to learn how to teach it, so long as the Lioness is not abridged or altered. Anyone who learns to teach it may set up courses and teach it, may charge a cost-recovery fee for the service, include a modest profit, and send no money to the NFA. There is no charge made by us.
The Lioness is the NFA's contribution to the safety of women. An adequate-definition .pdf file version can be downloaded from www.NFA.ca and printed by anyone. Copies can be made and distributed. A high-definition .pdf file version, with a separate file for each page, will soon be available from the same source.
Free printed copies of the Lioness are available from firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (780)439-1394 or by writing to NFA, Box 52183, EDMONTON AB, T6G 2T5.
The Lioness is a good short course that anyone of normal intelligence can learn, and anyone of normal intelligence can teach. The NFA encourages anyone who wants to teach the Lioness to get a copy, learn it and how to teach it by reading it, and then go ahead and teach classes. The NFA has no objection to the Instructor charging a fee for doing the teaching, and does not want any money from the Instructor. The NFA recommends that the Instructor ask for enough copies of the Lioness to be able to give each student a copy to keep. The NFA will supply those copies, free.
In short, the NFA wants the Lioness to be distributed as widely as possible. Does the local women's shelter need copies? We'll send them. Does the local Rape Crisis Centre want them? We'll send them. Does the women student organization at the local University want to distribute them? We'll send a CD that they can give to a printer, and get as many copies as they need. This is a service to the women of Canada, and we are proud to be a part of educating women in how to protect human life from criminal violence. Our Liberal government has protected violent criminals, and made Canadian women more vulnerable to attack by violent criminals. Let's all do what we can to improve that situation.

Some day, the realization may hit you: "My God! I'm about to be raped, mutilated, or killed!"
I hope that never happens; but it is simple fact that 27% of all Canadian women can expect to be sexually assaulted (statistics from Metro Action Committee on Public Violence Against Women and Children, 1991) if our violent crime rates get no worse. The figure went up by 69% from 1979 to 1989 (Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, 1991), and is still increasing, by 7 to 8% per year.
If you believe that you cannot injure another human being, this training is
not for you. If you believe that it is proper to stop a violent criminal to
save yourself and others, it is.
