More on Georgia Pepper Spray Regulations
Georgia Pepper Spray Law Explanation
Georgia’s big city residents have been increasing over the last 2 decades, especially in the state’s capital of Atlanta where major infrastructure improvements were made in preparation to host the 1996 Olympic Games. Big cities, especially ones that serve as major travel or event hubs, will almost always have issues with aggravated assault, attacks and other violent crime. In 2012 Atlanta was considered the 6th most dangerous city with more than 200,000 residents. However, you CAN reduce your risk of becoming a victim of crime with some simple state legal tools.
Pepper spray is a readily available safety tool that is easy to carry and use to protect yourself against an attack or assault. Pepper spray is legal to ship, carry, use and purchase in the state of Georgia for the purpose of personal self defense. We were unable to locate ANY state law restricting it. Georgia state also does not restrict the type or size of pepper spray products either. All the products on our website are legal to ship, use and carry in Georgia. Occasionally cities will have their own self defense pepper spray regulations, but rarely are they much different than state laws.
Additionally, we recommend you educate yourself about how to avoid risky safety situations, how to escape an attacker, and how to stay aware of your surroundings. Safety information and tools combined help you protect your safety.
