I just moved to the area, and am curious as to how I can acquire pepper spray. Google is failing me-- I either get conflicting information or information which I feel may be outdated.
Do I need to apply for a license? If so, how do I go about doing that? Would it be okay to just buy it online? Where are some concrete, actual places where I can buy it? Everyone says "sporting goods stores" or "stores where they sell camping equipment," but I really don't want to go to every such store, only to find that they don't have it. I'm in Brooklyn-- specifically, Greenpoint-- if that helps.
Thanks in advance.
