OK, let me see if I've got this straight. The bad guys can buy guns, capable of inflicting death in a matter of seconds with no more inconvenience than a 15 day waiting period. The good guys (that's you and me) can't purchase pepper spray for self-defense, capable of temporarily inconveniencing someone, without a) Paying for a class, b) Taking a class c) Buying the pepper spray and d) Carrying certification at all times. Am I missing something here, or have we all lost our minds?
I was considering giving pepper spray, a nice non-lethal method of keeping the creeps at bay, as Christmas presents to my wife and daughter, both of whom either work or live in San Francisco -
