    Am I allowed to import pepper fog spray and a pepper spray gun to Western Australia? I have a mob that tried to kill me.

    But it's Western Australia. It's legal here. I only want one can and my life honestly is in danger. What am I going to defend myself with...?

    No, it isn't.

    Cap spray is still a controlled weapon. To have access to the clim of "self defence", you'll need to be able to convince the court that you have a well-founded fear for your safety.

    That's well short of a right to carry one.
