Who here knows about the Laws regarding Pepper Spray for use for personal protection?

 

1. is it regulated like in some states in US?

2. can you carry on person and take to malls or boats or planes?

 

Anything else I/we should know about having this item for "personal protection"

I would think that the carrying and use of a highly concentrated Mexican food ingredient that has been pressurized would be considered OK, as long as the container is labeled correctly, but maybe that is just my opinion.  :D

Im not aware of any. Its sale and possession are not controlled.

 

1. is it regulated like in some states in US?

2. can you carry on person and take to malls or boats or planes?

Planes definately no.

Boats I would think so, as PTC holders take their guns on some boats, and some boats they make them check their guns... 

 

ITs sold in malls (but then so are guns). Seeing as the mall is private property it would be up to the malls policy if you can possess it there. If their representative (a guard) tells you no, then its no. They represent the owner.

 

Anything else I/we should know about having this item for "personal protection"

 

You should hope your not in a gun fight using it. And some people aren't affected by it very much. ALso, you should have it sprayed on you before you use it because it is very likely you will feel its effects when you use it. Especially indoors or if you catch the wind the wrong way, and if you have a severe reaction or are extra sensitive to it, you just lost your fight.

 

Also it does lose its potency over time. The legit stuff has an expiration date on it. I wouldn't even bother carrying it unless it was from a reputable manufacturer whose label could be trusted. I think less than lethal personal protection items should only be viewed as a last resort for people who can otherwise possess and effectively use a more effective means of personal protection. ITs best use is in less than lethal force by LE who are held cosely to an escalation of force continuum standard.

"In the Philippines, the use of pepper spray for self-defense is legal, and it is freely available in stores."

https://en.wikipedia...ki/Pepper_spray

 

I carry it for dogs, wouldn't even think about using it on a human.

Well, I should hope that I'm not in a gunfight without it too!

Guys, this is more for my wife and her friend.  They may be working late and leaving the shop alone, so if anyone ever threatens them, they can "spray" and run away.

 

That's the main reason for it: Spray and run Away

Its the same with the bear spray - you are supposed to spray and run- not get in a fight with the bear !!

i think taser  is better    atleast  u drop like a bag of shit   but  i bought a missus  spray once    lol  u think she could find it in her hand bag

 

 

 

wait  wait wait   ill just get my spray out   so  just stop running at me  or pointing that gun in my face  while i find it    is probably  not going to cut it

 

its not much personal protection   more a placebo    making u feel safer
