Justien De Bont started this petition to Dutch government and police

In the Netherlands it is illegal to carry any kind of weapon, this includes pepper spray. Because of this, it is very hard to protect or defend yourself as a woman. Pepper spray doesn’t do any harm that would last over approximately 30 minutes. This would be long enough for a woman to get to a safer place, or to get away from any kind of predator. Also, pepper spray shouldn’t be considered as a weapon, because the effects don’t last very long (about 30 min) and if a woman tries to stand up for herself and go to court to demand justice, it would be easier to recognize things such as rape if you have proof that you tried to defend yourself. The Dutch government and police should hereby legalize pepper spray, to keep women living in the Netherlands safe. If you are a woman, you would know that you’d feel unsafe walking over the street in the evening, without anything to protect yourself. If you have a daughter, sister or any other woman close to you in your life, you should sign this petition, to know that they can protect themselves if anything were to happen.   KEEP OUR WOMEN SAFE, LEGALIZE PEPPER SPRAY!!
