Traveling to RI from MA, cannot carry in RI.
Anyone know the Mace laws off-hand?
Thanks in advance.

Back from RI.
Went to see a show, they let my wife right through, but the frisked me.
I was quite surprised the woman frisking me "found" my mace, she said "oh wait, what's this??"
Without any hesitation I said "inhaler"
She let me go on through. :) For a second I thought I was out $15 and would have to be scolded by the [Me, myself, Irene voice]Rhode Island State Police[/MMIV].

I wonder if they found it what consequences if any? Probably just confiscate it and that's it?
