carry pepper spray

On Wednesday night, a meeting was held at the South Boston Boys & Girls Club to discuss public safety after recent attacks and robberies on women.  The meeting focused on information, education and how women can protect themselves.  Biggest takeaway from the information provided by the Boston Police was to carry pepper spray.  

Residents in Massachusetts can now legally carry pepper spray without a permit. Anyone 18 or over can buy it with just an ID.  You can purchase pepper spray at Dick’s Sporting Goods.  Make sure to learn how to use it properly.
