Mace pepper spray is a self-defense product made with oleoresin capsicum (OC), an inflammatory agent derived from cayenne peppers. It works by causing burning sensations, temporary blindness and coughing when sprayed on an attacker. The effects of Mace pepper spray typically last between 15 and 45 minutes, allowing users enough time to escape or call for help.
Mace pepper spray comes in several forms, including hand-held canisters for personal use, point-and-shoot devices that can be worn as accessories and larger containers designed for prolonged use. Pepper sprays can also come in the form of gels, foggers, and streamers so that they can be used more accurately at greater distances.
The laws for Mace pepper spray vary by state. Most states allow citizens to carry Mace pepper spray as long as the container does not exceed a certain size and is used solely for self-defense purposes. Some states also require users to obtain a permit or be trained in its use before carrying Mace pepper spray. In addition, many states prohibit the sale of Mace pepper spray to anyone under 18 years old, so it’s important to check local laws before purchasing this product.
