Utah Pepper Spray Law Explanation
Unfortunately, crime rates are increasing in many places throughout the United States. Protecting yourself should be a priority. In the state of Utah, it is completely legal for you to carry and use non-lethal self defense products to defend yourself.
When properly used, these types of self defense products can significantly increase your chances of escaping a dangerous situation. Pepper spray or an electronic incapacitation device (such as a stun gun) can give you the time you need to get away from an assailant.
In larger cities, such as Salt Lake City, Utah, crime rates continue to rise. There is a higher incidence of violent crimes, including rape, robbery, assault, and homicide. While you may choose to carry a firearm, you may want the choice whether or not in a given a situation you want to use it—or perhaps, if you can, use something that doesn’t have potentially permanent consequences.
Pepper spray is a perfect solution. The oleoresin capsicum (pepper spray’s active ingredient) causes an assailant to be temporarily blinded and can cause burning pain. While this will not permanently harm the person, it can make all the difference in helping you gain those precious moments to get yourself to safety and get help.
Take the time to shop in our online store to find products that you can carry while in the state of Utah to protect yourself. Your personal safety should never be at stake!
