    Abstract

    As a result of the increase in the number of crimes against the person in urban areas in recent years, there has been public interest in nonlethal protective devices for defensive purposes. The tear gas pen gun is an inexpensive, easily concealed device that is not classified as a firearm. In many communities there are no statutes that restrict the purchase or possession of these devices.
