With road crime hovering, it’s insane to cease New Yorkers from shopping for mace



Rikki Schlott had it completely proper in Sunday’s Post: There’s no cause on this planet for it to be so laborious to purchase mace on this city.

Major crimes had been up 34 p.c final month; robberies, 41 p.c; felony assaults, 21 p.c. Not to say the subway shovings, hate crimes and so forth.

Yet it’s unlawful to ship pepper spray to a New York handle. And solely a handful of shops promote mace, too. So New Yorkers — together with 1.5 million single ladies and 1 million aged — can’t safe a canister.

Schlott particulars how a goon adopted her right into a pharmacy close to Union Square and threatened rape — however she escaped after blasting her keychain pepper spray (shipped to a Jersey handle).

We defend New York’s gun legal guidelines, however stopping residents from defending themselves with mace is simply insane.

The Legislature’s in session for just a few extra weeks; that’s sufficient time to repeal this ludicrous regulation.
