I have a question or two that I've been wondering about for some time now. I've seen the self-defence equipment available in the stores (like Dollars, Carrefour, the night market, etc.) and this got me wondering about the legality of carrying such weapons on a day-to-day basis. While buying a counterfeit money-detecting light pen at Dollars, I asked the clerk a few questions about the extending batons and other stuff. Unfortunately, most of her reply was too quick for me to understand. One time my boss and I were talking about this sort of thing, and he told me that if I were stopped by the police, they might search the motorcycle but would not conduct a "pat-down". When I asked him why, he told me it's because of the relative rarity of guns. Anyways, could someone tell me more about the legal aspects of self-defence and the restrictions on carrying items (like the batons, spray and hand-held shockers). Thanks!
