Pepper Spray

What is Pepper Spray?

Pepper spray is a nonlethal aerosol spray made with the pepper derivative oleoresin capsicum. It is used to cause temporary blindness and incapacitate an attacker. You should only use pepper spray if you are threatened or your life is in danger. It is a crime to use pepper spray to commit malicious acts.

A good spray will put the attacker down and out allow you to escape or take control of the situation. Some brands of pepper spray will leave an invisible chemical on the attacker which will help police identify them.

When you buy pepper spray, take a look at the expiration date. You will need to buy a new can when it expires. Most sprays last for about 2 years.

How does Pepper Spray work?

Pepper spray is an inflammatory agent. When the spray comes into contact with mucous membranes (eyes, nose, throat and lungs), it causes immediate dilation of the capillaries. Temporary blindness and instant inflammation of the nose, throat and lungs will occur immediately after the spray comes into contact with the mucous membranes. The attacker will experience difficulty breathing, coughing, choking, sneezing, severe burning sensations to the eyes, nose, throat and skin, and nausea.

The inflammation will last from 15 to 60 minutes.

Is Pepper Spray Legal?

Pepper spray is legal in all 50 states in the U.S. However, possession and/or use may be regulated or prohibited by law in some jurisdictions. If you have questions about the legality of pepper spray where you live, check with your local police department.

Where is Pepper Spray Prohibited?

You cannot carry pepper spray on board a commercial aircraft. If you do, you can be charged with a Federal crime and a $25,000 dollar fine. You may not be allowed to carry pepper spray into Federal buildings and State buildings.
