    Aprove, what's the deal with mace in NJ?  Someone told me it's illegal, but their intelligence is questionable.  I definitely want to carry some around.

    Oh its illegal the regular kind.  You have to go buy this red pepper version.  Basically it works like mace but isn't mace.  You also have to be over 18 and it has to be a pre determined size.  I guess I maced him with faux mace.

    Mace or faux mace, as long as it works, it's good with me.  Okay, I'll have to check this out.  I wish we could carry those little tasers that are legal in other parts of the country, although I freely admit it could definitely get out of hand.

    [QUOTE]Ohmigawd!! I'm glad you're okay. I carry mace, but I applaud you for having the wherewithall to use it. I would have curled up in the fetal position and given him my SSN and mother's maiden name.

    If I'd had a chance to be scared I may have reacted differently but I was angry and flabbergasted. 

    I only carry self defense items I'd actually use.  Getting a permit to carry a concealed gun is very difficult in NJ or I might carry a gun.  I'm very comfortable with guns, mace and tasers and won't hesitate to use them if someone trys to harm me.  However, Jelique mentioned carrying a knife.  I don't have much experience with self defense in terms of knife skills so that isn't something I'd carry.

    [QUOTE]aprov! go you. Can you come to my law school please and thanks? I could use someone to rough up the creeps who hang around the area. btw- hows law school? fb me! :)

    Not gonna lie.  I've been enjoying your wedding photos!  You were such a stunning bride. 

    I'd love to go to law school in Boston vs. Camden. That isn;t a fair comparison.  Law school is beyond hectic.  Love three of my classes....legally writing, torts and contracts.  Civil procedure makes me want to scream.  You'll be getting a FB message soon!

    Okay, I'll read up on it and then check it out in person.   I live in a nice, small town  that's borders super rich Bergen County towns and I almost got robbed in a Rite Aid parking lot. It can happen anywhere. I think the guy was high and it was scary as hell.  I just hit the alarm on my car and ran into it (I was pretty close) and he backed off, but I realized that I didn't have much more than just basic self-defense knowledge.  I'd like to learn more and carry something (like the spray) for more protection.

    You go, girl.  That's awesome.  And it's funny, since you weren't hurt.

    You girls who have not taken self defense classes should look into RAD. Its a all women's self defense class that I have taken 3 times and helped teach it once. It has really helped me not to be afraid in scary situations (now that I know what to do). They also have RAD Kids, this teaches kids the basics about what to do in a fire or if someone tries to get them to get in the car with them and stuff like that. I have helped teach both classes and they are excellent. I know they have them all over the US but you should see if they offer it near you. You get a binder filled with information and you can go back as many times as you want to take the class.

    RAD = Rape Aggression Defense.
