Although it wont be the most "romantic" christmas gift, I want to buy my girlfriend of 4 years pepper spray for christmas. Where she goes to school, a female student recently was followed into the locker room by two masked men, and I am sure you can guess what happened next. This made me realize that I cant be there 24/7 to keep her safe. My best option is to make sure she has means to protect herself when I can not. The last time I bought pepper spray was when me and my cousin wanted to see if it really hurts as bad as they say it does a few years back. It does. Any new regulations on purchasing it? Any specific brand I should look at?
