    You can carry some type of defensive spray. I would get it when you get into the state to make sure it is legal.

    The Taj/Showboat have had some crime related problems recently. I would advise against walking between the boardwalk and the marina, at night even more so. If you are looking for poker or table games the Borgata is probably the place to go.

    AC can be a very dangerous place, do not go wandering about off the beaten path, as for SD options, I believe that anything beyond a small knife or a small can of pepper spray will be illegal.

    You shouldn't have anything to worry about in AC because weapons are illegal there, so therefore no one will have guns....right????
    Seriously...stay safe, be careful and watch your surroundings. And as the post above stated, it may be best to purchase any spray in NJ so you'll know it will be legal.

    I think you should stay in PA. The State needs the revenue. :-) But good luck with whatever you decide and be safe!

    As stated - don't wander off the boardwalk. It takes about 50' before you are in some very rough neighborhoods...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    AC is an S Hole. Very dangerous, even around the casinos and boardwalk area. Use good caution.

    I agree with this. I go out there once a year for a trade show where my company has a booth (at one of the big casinos) and I loathe it. Personally, I take a limo from the airport to the casino, and I never leave there until a limo takes me back to the airport to go home. I see plenty out the window on the way to the hotel to make me not want to walk around. My real opinion is go up to the Foxwoods or something instead, lol.

    What I believe to be legal would be a cane. The more I work with and carry mine the more I like it for a defense weapon.

    I live south of AC and go often. Have a great time. Like other are saying stay on the boardwalk or take taxi to restaurants. Lock door driving even daytime. No worse than any other city. I like the Borgata. Oh yea I think the cane makes you look like a target in AC :)

    NJ Pepper Spray (forget stun guns tasers etc.)

    Here is the NJ Law:

    NEW JERSEY: OC/Pepper Spray ~ Legal (with restrictions)

    Any non-felon 18 or over may possess for the purpose of self-defense "one pocket-sized device which contains and releases not more than three-quarters of an ounce of chemical substance not ordinarily capable of lethal use or of inflicting serious bodily injury, but rather is intended to produce temporary physical discomfort or disability through being vaporized or otherwise dispensed in the air". Section 2C:39-6i.


    2A:62A-20. Immunity from civil liability for use of chemical substance for self-defense
    1. Notwithstanding any provisions of law to the contrary, a person who possesses a chemical substance for the purpose of personal self-defense in accordance with subsection i. of N.J.S.2C:39-6 and who releases or discharges that chemical substance upon or toward another person shall not be liable in any civil action for damages resulting from that release or discharge when the actor reasonably believes that the releasing or discharging of that chemical substance is immediately necessary for the purpose of personal self-defense. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to grant immunity to any person causing any damage by his willful, wanton or grossly negligent unlawful releasing or discharging of such a chemical substance upon or toward another person.
