From what I have gathered and I'm no expert on the subject but 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 or police department for specific laws about the possession and use of pepper spray products in your city or county. Defense sprays should only be purchased by those 18 years of age or older. This list may not be totally accurate or complete and ReptiTactical accepts no responsibility for its accuracy or completeness. As stated above it's always best to find out your states laws.
We Cannot ship to these states. If an order is placed, your order will be canceled.
New York: New York residents may only purchase defense sprays from licensed Firearms Dealers or licensed Pharmacists in that state.
Massachusetts: It is illegal for pepper spray to be mailed to Massachusetts, but it may be lawfully carried by private citizens. Before it is legal for any resident of the state to purchase the spray, a dealer must obtain a proof of age 18 or over with a valid form of identification. However Individuals between the ages of 15 and 18 must still have a valid firearms identification (FID) card to purchase self-defense spray. These are very easy to get: you simply request one at any local police station, fill out the required form and provide two separate types of identification. Every FID has a processing fee of $2, and takes about a week to receive.
