Pepper Spray and Mace in Massachusetts: new hope.

Only 2 states in the nation do not allow mail order sales of pepper spray or mace spray: Massachusetts and New York.
It means that although defensive sprays are legal in Massachusetts and New York they may not be bought on-line, we may not ship Pepper spray or Mace to Massachusetts and New York.
Massachusetts went even further than New York in regards to defensive sprays: Massachusetts requires a special class Firearm ID to carry pepper spray in your purse. No kidding!..

Now all of a sudden, some Massachusetts legislators are talking about lifting this restriction on pepper spray and mace. If you live in Massachusetts -- read on:

Possibly in the nearest future Massachusetts residents will be able to get mace and pepper spray for personal protection.

"...According to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Republican State Representative Todd Smola of Palmer is one of three state legislators sponsoring a bill that would let Bay State residents buy self defense sprays without a license..."

Right now Massachusetts law requires you to apply for a $25 FID permit, undergo a background check and fingerprinting -- a process that takes about a month.

Hello-o-o-o, pilgrims, it's 21st century now, everyone in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine and other 48 states can get their own protection and take care of themselves, if God forbid, there is a need.

Kudos to Todd Smola for his righteous effort!

Thank you Todd Smola for all your efforts. I support your efforts. I have a young daughter who was randomly physically assaulted while working in the city; a year later she was almost kidnapped on her way home from work by a cab driver. I called my local PD and they told me she needed to pay $100 fee, file app, then meet with chief, etc. etc. However, when she was in school in NH, she could by it.

I have talked to the police chief in Sterling, and he will support a class educating residents on self defense devices. I also was surprised that for a $6.00 pepperspray, I need to sign my privacy away. I have been in contact with our reps, Naughton and Evangilitas about this issue. Harold's office said that he has been involved with trying to remove this restriction. Anything I can do to help, please let me know. There are so many home invasions lately, it should be a priority.
