Some notes on "Tear Gas"
Some rounds, launch a gas generator that travels some distance and releases a large volume of white smoke, which contains CN or CS Tear Gas, for about 20-40 seconds. You do not want to be in that smoke or even close. The canister presents a fire hazard so care should be observed in dry conditions. Other types of rounds fire a cloud of gas directly from the muzzle of the launcher.
These are federally legal to buy however there are states and municipalities where they are not legal. It is your responsibility to be sure that you are allowed to own these. These are not toys.
"Gas" is a misnomer. CN (Chloroacetophenone) is a solid that is finely ground so that it can be carried by the smoke that is so characteristic of tear gas deployment. Here is a brief history of the substance:
Chloroacetophenone was discovered by German scientists around 1870, but was not prepared for actual scientific use until 1877. The extent to which scientists used it was rather minimal, considering that its properties had not yet been explored by the scientific realm. However, in the year of 1923, the United States Government made the decision to finance the development of chemical agents that could be used for law enforcement at the Edgewood Arsenal. Scientists spent a great deal of time and energy researching irritants that would not be lethal to civilians but could be used as a method of crowd control. They eventually developed the chloroacetophenone as a spray in canisters that is very similar to the tear gas used by modern day law enforcement. In the late 1920's, the French became the first successful users of chloroacetophenone as a means of bringing order to the disputes of civilians within their colonies. By the 1930's, virtually every law enforcement agency in the world was using chloroacetophenone as a way of controlling out of hand civilian situations.
Experimentation with chloroacetophenone continued into the 1940's during World War II. Within that time period, it was discovered that chloroacetophenone particles that were micro-pulverized would produce a greater effect of irritation that would endure much longer.
