Laws & Restrictions

Below are pepper spray laws and restrictions that we are aware of. You should check locally if you believe pepper sprays may be restricted in your area. Pepper Spray is legal in all 50 states, however a number of cities and states have restrictions on sizes, strengths, etc. If you have a question, it is wise to check with your local city or state attorneys office. Defense sprays should only be purchased by those 18 years of age or older. The below list may not be totally accurate or complete and we accept no responsibility for its accuracy or completeness.

State Laws and Restrictions:

Please be aware that with any orders you place with us, you have agreed to our Terms & Conditions  and are responsible for any liability.

Massachusetts: Firearms dealers may sell self-defense sprays to any person age 18 or over, unless otherwise disqualified. A firearms identification (FID) card or license to carry firearms (LTC) is NO LONGER required for purchase. However, dealers should verify age with a valid form of identification. Individuals between the ages of 15 and 18 must still have a valid firearms identification (FID) card to purchase self-defense spray. Except for verifying age, a dealer is not required to determine whether or not a purchaser is disqualified from possessing self-defense spray.

New York: Pepper spray may be legally possessed by any person age 18 or over; however, it must be purchased in person (i.e., cannot be purchased by mail-order or internet sale) either at a pharmacy or from a licensed firearm retailer (NY Penal Law 265.20 -14), and the seller must keep a record of purchases. The use of pepper spray to prevent a public official from performing his/her official duties is a class-E felony.


Pepper spray is legal in several countries outside the U.S., but we are unable to ship individual orders (to end-users/customers) due to federal shipping regulations. If you wish to purchase internationally, you must either purchase through a distributor or become a distributor and open up a wholesale account.
