RD's are illegal in Ontario. The RD will be taken by the police if found. If you defend yourself against the charge and WIN, the RD is returned to you. On a Canadian police forum, an RCMP officer suggests throwing the RD in the microwave for a few seconds before retuning it. Will this destroy the unit? My understanding of microwave ovens is that they only vibrate (heat) water molecules.
If for some reason a charge was lost in court and the person wanted the SMWD back, return to detachment, put it in a box and seal "very well" with "Red Green tape" and then the SMWD is back in a sealed package. Not too mention the fun of the person trying to get in the box Smile
OR... throw it in a microwave for a couple of seconds before returning it... does wonders.
Ooops... did I say that?
