      That's TV stuff..just like guns.
      Pepper Spray is a section 6 self-defense weapon in France and you only need an ID to obtain it, also it can’t be more than 100mg.

        You can buy pepper spray even at a drugstore in Germany. In fact I remember the media outcry when one of the major drugstore chains started selling it right after people started feeling unsafe what with the attacks on women on new years eve in cologne.
        Seems like the buyers didn't care though if the media thought this was appropriate or not - apparently that stuff was selling like hot cakes.

        If you're witnessing a lot of fights, ever thought about stepping up your game and invest in one of those nifty rape whistles?

                • Man dies after stabbing in east London hours after police officer attacked with knife

                  The Metropolitan Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was stabbed to death in east London on Saturday morning,hours after a police officer was attacked with a knife.

                  Police were called to Kingsland Road in Hackney around 6.30am following reports a man had been wounded.

                  Officers and emergency workers found a young man believed to be in his 20s suffering from stab injuries. He was taken to a central London hospital in a critical condition and died a few hours later.
                  London has seen a significant rise in violent crime during 2018. Earlier this month, the number of homicides for the year so far surpassed the figure for the whole of 2017.

                  There have been 14 fatal shootings and 70 fatal stabbings among the 123 homicides in the city so far this year.

                  Highest since 2008 actually.

                    • Labour to propose new crossbow laws after woman's death

                      Labour planns to propose further restrictions on the sale of crossbows, days after a pregnant 35-year-old woman was shot and killed with one of the weapons at her home in east London.

                      The party is examining how it could amend the offensive weapons bill making its way through parliament to introduce further restrictions. Sale of crossbows is simply restricted for under-18s.
                      Streeting said weapons such as the crossbow that killed Muhammad were readily available for purchase online and asked the prime minister to consider toughening up “the scope of the laws governing the sale, possession and use of these deadly weapons”.

                      Unlike guns, crossbows are subject to limited regulation. The weapons are legal for anybody aged over 18 to buy and can easily be found online. They are not subject to licensing, and purchasers are not subject to additional checks as buyers of guns are, although possessing one in a public place may, in some circumstances, be an offence.

                      Labour sources told the Guardian that the party was working on a number of potential amendments to the bill. “The laws are clearly too lax; there isn’t, for instance, any specific licensing regime,” a source said.

                      Oh UK....always with the bans. Never mind that you can make PVC crossbows by hand that are powerful enough to put holes in walls.

                        Would this be the one banning blow pipes and shurikens because the Home Office is terrifed of 1980s movie ninjas?

                        • Thankfully, it looks like the crossbow ban amendment was forgotten....for now.

                              Go for it, I made a PVC bow in high school and it worked really well for about two months.

                                That’s 131 homicides to this date. As well as the third death after Cassandra Dick boldly claimed they were turning the tide against violent crime.
