Has to do with the compressed pepper spray being exsplosive and the large electric current they carry too close to one another.
What's funny is the things normal police can't carry/use that bail bondsmen/bounty hunters can.

Hmm, for defending myself/home with a completely legal firearm? Don't think so. Maybe a short hassle is about all.
What's also nice is that, my handgun (as long as I don't conceal (or reveal it in a threatening manner, unless defending myself) is 100% legal in any form when I carry it around with me...loaded, unloaded, safety or not, clip of any number of bullets (assuming if it were a large clip it was bought before it was banned (if it was banned)). Actually just found out this specific stuff yesterday when I rode with a friend to a jail near here and happened to ask the head sheriff, to clarify for myself.
The friend is a bail bondsman/bounty hunter, my dad was also a police officer for over 15 years (in the city I currently live in, and another city (together)), my little brother has been in the army for about 5 years or more (Not saying this is a shit load of anything, or that you don't know anything, just speaking from my personal experiences). You'd probably be amazed at how apt I am of how to obey the law and still defend myself successfully (with or without the firearm).
Edit: I also wanted to post something else to this but I got tied up and forgot...

You should be required to take a spray from the Pepper Spray or a shock from the Stun Gun in order to get them IMO, unless you're some defenseless 80 yr old woman (who shouldn't be carrying it in the first place because she's more likely to spray herself in the face
). Kind of like..I took a bullet to the face, so I feel now I can carry a gun and not be too dangerous to innocent people (kind of, Handgun and PepSpray/StnGun are 2 obviously different leagues)...I won't jump off without fully being aware of everything around me.
But seriously, too many people do over do it with defense items like that because they don't truly know the power of what they possess.
