You are here: Home > State Laws > Texas Regulations

When you want to buy a defense spray in Texas, there is only one important rule you need to know: unlike most things in the state, MACE and pepper spray canisters are only acceptable is small sizes. According to the Texas Penal Code, nothing other than a "small chemical dispenser" may be carried by citizens. This law helps to ensure that people do not use these self defense weapons for anything other than emergency situations. These chemical sprays contain an extremely powerful ingredient called Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) that will have a serious, but temporary effect on the respiratory system of anyone who is hit with them. Most people will be put out of commission immediately upon contact, so it must only be used when absolutely necessary.
