If you have the ability to utilize pepper spray in public against individuals that are trying to harm you physically then the exact same scenario amply's to utilizing pepper spray in a building as well such as a prison. I do support this bill however there are positives and negatives. Pepper spray May be abused in prisons as well which will increase abusive corruption that guards believe they are above the law. Although, the The positive is the ability to contain self defense which any American deserves, you think about it it's the right to bear arms, it's our CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. GAURDS AND AUTHORITIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE SECOND AMENDMENT AS WELL. So then I don't see why pepper spray should be abolished from their possession as self defense which justifies your second amendment rights . THANK YOU for your time.
