Apparently, it’s illegal for folks to carry pepper spray in Canada. Some folks with clear heads are trying to correct that. You’d think that would be a no brainer, right? Nope.
Are the detractors stating that bad guys might use the sprays to attack the innocent?
Maybe they’re concerned that folks might over react and spray someone because they got into an argument?
The argument against is that legalizing pepper spray is evil and wrong because “places the onus on women to defend themselves rather than focusing on addressing and preventing gender-based violence,” and is “offensive to women.”
That’s right. It’s evil because we should just teach boys not to rape, and then we’ll live in a magical world of peace. Oh, and it’s offensive to think that you might want to be prepared if some droog’s treatment doesn’t work.
I can’t even.
