New York had a law that prohibited adults from generally carrying a firearm (including a concealed handgun) upon their person in New York without a state-issued license.

How To Use Pepper Spray (But Why You Probably Shouldn’t)

2022-06-15T13:24:57-05:00June 15th, 2022|Tags: , |

Despite being somewhat ineffective, pepper spray is one of the most popular less-than-lethal safety tools out there.

Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to use it properly, and not understanding the correct way to use something is almost as bad as not having it in the first place. Just like with a firearm, knife, or other self-defense tool, you need to know how to use pepper spray the right way if you want any chance to escape from an attacker.
