    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?

    Brilliant.

    And, if they pat your holster, say "Colostomy bag".

    Much more likely to get "Ok, let's see it" than colostomy bag[smile]

    Need to design holster that mimics a colostomy bag. And a flask.
