Bear spray would be extremely effective on antifa thugs, so naturally it's banned in CA for that use.

Never had any problem with bears. Antifa & left-wing thuggery is something else entirely, and all too common these days.

Since the likelihood of stopping a determined big bear before it can kill you is rather slim. I say the the purpose of a bear deterrent like a handgun or spray is to mark the bear that killed you, so when the rangers go to find and kill the bear they know they got the right one. A paint ball gun would probably work out just as well, but it doesn't make me feel better. I would prefer a shotgun loaded with slugs in bear country.
