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.
Yeah, I was carrying a can of pepper er bear spray in full view on the side pouch of my backpack for a while. 'Course I started doing that right after a momma and cub crossed the street right in front of me in the morning.
I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
