Ladies! Should we carry pepper spray around?

on May 31, 2011 @ 09:29 am

With so many incidents and tragedy happening, whether it's simple robbery to rape to murder, do you think that we should carry pepper spray with us at all times? I found this cute looking pepper spray on Safety Girl
It also comes in a variety of different colors but I thought pink was the cutest hehe.

Anyways, the color is beside the point. I personally think that women should have mace/pepper spray with them especially if they're walking anywhere alone at night. What do you guys think?

My parents actually got me dog spray to carry around when I first moved to the city. I don't exactly live in the safest neighbourhood. I think I still have it in one of my school bags. But I con honestly say I've never even considered using it. It's kind of like a security blanket, some women just feel safe carrying it. I know it made my parents feel better about me walking home at night.

I like how you used "cute" for a weapon...hahahahahaha!
As a born and raised downtown torontonian, I've never exactly felt unsafe, walking throughout the city.
However, this is definitely a great tool for a safety blanket, as Tasha explained.
...I think I'd buy it. It looks too adorable to pass up!

I live in a really safe area and even now and then when I'm walking my dog I get guys slowing down in trucks acting really sketchy. And I often think something like this would be handy. Or maybe I should get a bigger, tougher dog because my little guy isn't very threatening lol.

Here is another form of mace from the same website. It is disguised in this lipstick case. It's a lot more compact and definitely less noticeable than a mace gun.

@momkim - I am student and I know my parents worry a lot since I am in a different town. To be honest, sometimes it does feel freaky late at night walking home from a friend's house or something.

I don't really see mace as a weapon, it is for self defense. Mace is a tear gas so it will make the attacker tear up giving you time to run away.
Even though the mace gun is bigger, I would prefer that since it shoots further allowing you to have more space between you and the attacker when you shoot and run.

i would buy it on May 31, 2011 @ 04:22 pm

I would def' buy it if they were selling the pink gun in the stores. And I prefer the pink colour to the other colours too :) So much cuter!

I think the pink gun has its advantages - it will distract the attacker and actually give you time to pull the trigger and spray the mace! The lipstick one is too small and when you're scared and rushing to whip out your trusty mace gun/stick, you need something you can actually use, that won't slip out of your hand or be too tiny to handle fast.

I totally prefer the pink gun! Good find! :)
