Matt Fores-donnelly started this petition to UK Parliament

Over recent years crime has become a bigger problem in the uk than ever, and what can us, the British citizens do to protect ourself? To stop attackers and make them think twice about there actions, nothing. By uk law even the most non lethal deterrents are illegal to own and use and would get you, the victim, in more trouble than the attacker, thief or other criminal. Well I think that we should have access and legal use of deterrents to help us defend ourself in a non lethal and safe way. This is why I propose that the uk citizens have access to full strength pepper spray and not alternatives that prove less effective, under uk law pepper spray is classed as a section 5 weapon and use can lead to the user being prosecuted on a full firearm charge and a fine, it’s my belief that users of pepper spray for self defence, defending property or defending others should be commemorated for there actions and bravery instead of being punished as a criminal, make this change, give us, the uk citizens a way to defend ourself from the growing threat that is the criminals of the UK, thank you for reading
