Re: Legality of mace/pepper spray in the city?
I have bought pepper-spray right in Center City. Four blocks from City Hall to be exact.
And I always carry my Kimber Guardian Angel when I'm out & about in the city.
Laws which affect your personal safety are mere "suggestions". A $300 fine is a heck of a lot cheaper than an emergency room visit.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”
"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it."
