Just wondering about local gun laws and if there are any restrictions on non-lethal SD options, please advise.

Wife is from the Bronx, visiting MIL, the subject is something they aren't familiar with.

I started answering, but when I got to the third paragraph I remembered we have tacked threads. Check there for the answers.

from the tacked thread:
Do not bring weapons into the 5 boroughs of NYC if that is your destination.


Thanks, I saw NYS in that thread title and didn't anticipate a special "NYC is teh suxxor guns r bad" paragraph.

Okay, not my town not my rules, but what are other legal options for self-defense? Fox labs, Taser, marshmellow Peeps?

I'm pretty sure that's up there too, but the short answer: You can carry pepper spray, BUT it must be bought here from an FFL or phamacist. No go with Tasers/stun guns.

Your best self defense option is common sense.

Stay home and load magazines instead?

Thanks guys, the last option is what I guess I'll go with depending on what I find at the Pathmark shopping center near my MIL's house.

There is NO protection from a M.I.L.

You can't bring it in from another state?

Oh wait, I forgot, the concentration of OC tripples and becomes lethal when it senses it's crossed over a border...duh, my fault, sorry guys
