Oldest daughter got her first can of pepper spray today. The boy friends mother gave it to her. I bet she would get expelled from school if they found it in her car.
By heat rating, I mean the heat level that the OC is rated at. Here's a good link that explains a lot. They don't go into much detail about heat rating vs percentage, but there is a lot more info out there about it. My friend works at the Sherriffs Dept. and is one of their pepper spray trainers. He verified the accuracy of the website's statements on oil vs water based, and heat rating vs percentage.Says don't store above 120. That all there is on the canister about temp.
In the complete B.S. world of "zero tolerance" I'd get something in writing that said it was either OK or not OK to keep in a car on campus. If they can kick 4th graders out for drawing a gun, they can kick out a senior for having pepper spray.Hahaha what a question... We have drug sniffing dogs in our parking lots during school hours a few times every month, they even go to the cars parked down the street which are not "on campus" according to school rules about leaving campus, but are apparently on campus for searches. People have been expelled for having knives in their car while parked down the street from the school. HOWEVER, if for some reason a girl was caught with Pepper Spray in her car, I doubt it would be a big deal. Pretty easy to claim self defense on that one.
(I'm a high school senior) I'm not sure what age/school the posters daughter is, but this is for HS.
I totally agree. I can't see where subjecting her to that would benefit her, really.I've been sprayed. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I don't think it would benefit her any to take a dose. As long as she understands how and when to use it, and it's effects.
If she doesn't understand how it will affect her, and she sprays an assailant, and some blows back on her... will she be capable of getting away?I've been sprayed. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I don't think it would benefit her any to take a dose. As long as she understands how and when to use it, and it's effects.
