Wish I could remember where I saw/read the article about a neighborhood of housewives (IIRC in Silver Spring, MD) who strapped up in response to a crime wave. Had pictures of mid-50's housewives in aprons with bolt actions and (mostly) S&W Model 10s sitting on somebody's front steps.
So, yes, there are (were?) housewives who OC'd. Just happened before reality TV.
