Missouri Pepper Spray Law Explanation

The Basics:

  • Pepper spray is LEGAL to buy/use/carry/ship to Missouri
  • Must be a minimum of 18 years old
  • Cannot have any convicted felonies on record
  • For self defense purposes only

In Missouri, it is perfectly legal to carry and use pepper spray to protect yourself from dangerous situations or assailants. It is also legal to use electronic incapacitation devices, such as stun guns. While residents of Missouri have the right to bear arms as well, non-lethal alternatives may be useful in some circumstances.

Although the crime rates in major cities such as Kansas City, Missouri, are slowly declining, the rate of decline is slow and some areas continue to be quite dangerous for those not properly protected or not properly aware of how to avoid danger. Assaults, robberies, homicides, rapes, and other violent crimes are prevalent, and it is important to protect yourself from all types of danger.

All of the products that you will find in our online store are legal in the state of Missouri for self defense if you feel your life or your safety is being threatened.

Whether you are in a location known to be dangerous or even you expect to be in a safe situation, taking the proper precautions like having some pepper spray, a stun gun, and a personal alarm to protect yourself and alert others is always a smart idea.

The rights guaranteed by this section shall be unalienable. Any restriction on these rights shall be subject to strict scrutiny and the state of Missouri shall be obligated to uphold these rights and shall under no circumstances decline to protect against their infringement. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent the general assembly from enacting general laws which limit the rights of convicted violent felons or those adjudicated by a court to be a danger to self or others as result of a mental disorder or mental infirmity.
