Personal Protection: Other than your wits, what do you use?

“I’m curious as to whether people are carrying mace. I recently purchased a Sabre brand canister of mace that is supposed to attach to a keychain for my girlfriend. We live near 14th & U (just providing context as to where we live) and she has been in some questionable situations, through no fault of her own, when out and about. Also, we see all the reports about stabbings/shootings/flashings which elevates our concern.

I felt a little weird about getting the mace as she didn’t ask for it, but it’ll help provide me with a (false?) sense of security when she actually starts carrying it with her. As an aside, if you purchase mace, it needs to be registered with mpdc.

So, who here is carrying mace and have you registered? Have you had to use or threaten to use it?

Thanks for weighing in!”
