I am not sure if it's legal or not but a friend told me to buy some. she said,she walks to the corner store with hers clicked and ready. she lives in a pretty good area but,refused to take chances since there are plenty of fools walking out there. I don't want to get it at all. I would panic and spray a person who might just be asking directions.

If you are afraid to use it than do not get any. Better safe than sorry.

@sharon6345 If you are around rough people then I would say yes.

Even if it isn't legal it is intimidating. I don't have any but used to carry some.

@sharon6345 ...I never heard that it was illegal except here. I think in defense of yourself you should be able to use it.

It's really good to be prepared at anytime , you are attacked by a bad person . Though , we should be cautious enough to discern if the person is indeed intending to do us harm . This will be nice specially when you always go home alone and already late in the evening .

I do think it is illegal at least here. I don't have any but then nothing really happens here.

I used to have one. I never used it, but I kept it with me just to be safe. I don't own one any more. In Japan, it's illegal to have pepper spray.

I'd suggest you find out if it's legal before you buy any.

It is legal to have one here, you must be 18 years old to buy the spray and you are responsible if you use it "illegally", I mean if you hurt someone "by mistake", you can have to pay plenty of money in damages.

I don't have a pepper spray. Perhaps it is not easy to buy it here, I guess.

I won't be buying any. I am rarely out at night anyway and even more rarely in places where I might need it.
