Rocket Dog ... I PMd Frankie about this because I was getting confused (some days, it really doesn't take much!)
He provided me with the clarity that I was so obviously lacking! I'm right in that it is a prohibited weapon against people (d'uh!!! no kidding), BUT I can get it if I am going hiking / camping, and I don't need a permit.
Living in the capital of the country with more laws and by-laws than people, I'm actually impressed that I could purchase it!
Still, I don't need it, last I checked we didn't have too many bears in the city! And if i do see one, there's a nice long list of people that I would just invite over ... making sure the bear sees at least one of them!
