Wow, I knew you guys weren't allowed to have guns, but pepper spray? That's crazy! Pretty much every girl 16 or older in the U.S. has a can of pepper spray in her purse or on her keychain.
We've got guns! Just really tough to get an ATC for a handgun (Authorization to Carry). I had a SIG P226 .40 cal but got bored. Only allowed to shoot it at the range...
We're allowed pepper spray, just not allowed to CALL it pepper spray! Read the wiki post again. If it's labelled Bear or Dog spray it's fine. Same shit, same concentration, different label. One is a prohibited weapon (equivalent to sub 4.1" barrel handguns, 25 and 32 ACP handguns, or fully auto assault rifles), the other you can buy in Bass Pro.
