Nj Pepper Spray Laws

Postby Delavan » Sun Dec 04, 2016 8:21 am

Hi Nic,

I am interested in starting a non-lethal self defense product company. My main product will be pepper spray. I'm familiar with the statue which states that it is legal to carry one canister of not more than 3/4 oz of spray for those 18 years and older. I am not able to find anything allowing or disallowing the sale of such items. Can you help?

By the way, I have contacted the NJ State Police, NJ Commerce and Economic Growth Commision and the NJ State Law Library. So far I have been given lots of, "probably and most likely" but not a hard and fast answer.

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Samee-

New Jersey classifies tear gas(or pepper spray.mace) as a weapon:

NEW JERSEY: Illegal

New Jersey State Law. New Jersey Stat. Ann. Title 2C. New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice. Chapter 39-1.

Prohibited weapons and devices.

(Section "r" summarized from Chapter 2C:39-1) "Weapon" means anything readily capable of lethal use or of

inflicting serious bodily injury. The term includes, but is not limited to all(4) stun guns; and any weapon or

(this section refers to tear gas and has been updated in 1995) other device which projects, releases, or emits

tear gas or any other substance intended to produce temporary physical discomfort or permanent injury

through being vaporized or otherwise dispensed in the air.

(t) "Stun gun" means any weapon or other device which emits an electrical charge or current intended to

temporarily or permanently disable a person.

Senate, No. 2871 -- L.1985, c. 360

Because its classified as a weapon, it may only be sold by licensed gun dealers(that requires a federal license).

Sorry to rain on you parade!

good luck with whatever you decide to do.

regards,

Nic
