What would the sentencing guidelines be if you were pulled over and found to have a can of cs gas in the car?

I can't believe even the US would allow it for civilians but prohibit it for the military.

What?

As I understand it the military can't use CS spray as it would fall foul of the chemical weapons conventions.

It’s a staple of NBC training - no issue using it on your own guys!

The analogy also doesn’t work. Expanding ammunition is banned by treaty from military use but is perfectly legal for civilians to use in the US. Just because it’s “banned to the military” doesn’t mean civilians can’t have it.

Yup, the same ammo that is used to "humanely" kill animals when hunting is banned as inhumane for war.

Prohibited by the Geneva convention in warfare. Obviously can be used in training and testing.

So not prohibited at all, just not allowed to be used in warfare.

Yes apologies for not spelling it out, I am surprised something the military cannot use in combat could be carried around in some airhead's handbag in the US.

I worked as a contractor for the British army one summer with unescorted access, I think the list of things they are prohibited from using in training would fit on a fag packet.
