Democrat Pepper Sprays Himself In The Face For Gun Grabbing

Well, this idea is better than the rape whistles Dem Rep Joe Salazar recommend. But, still doesn’t put the fear of being blasted in a criminal

(Newsweek) A Democratic candidate for Colorado’s 6th congressional district on Denver’s east side recorded a video in which he blasted himself in the face with pepper spray to promote non-firearm methods of self-defense.

Levi Tillemann is a Denver businessman and the former special adviser for policy and international affairs at the U.S. Department of Energy under the Obama administration. Tillemann took on a painful and hyperbolic stunt in order to differentiate himself from Democratic opponent Jason Crow as he seeks to win the June 26 primary and ultimately try to replace the seat currently held by Republican Michael Coffman. Tillemann released a video Friday touting “non-lethal self-defense tools” for teachers in lieu of recent proposals that educators should be given firearms to defend classrooms from school shooters.

“Empower schools and teachers with nonlethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray,” Tillemann says in the video as he prepares to spray himself in the face. “Pepper spray doesn’t cost much, and it can be safely stored in a break-glass-in-case-of-emergency cabinet. But it’s powerful and won’t accidentally kill a kid…Trust me, this will stop anybody in their tracks.” (snip)

Tillemann told the Independent he also supports more traditional, mainstream Democratic gun control proposals such as the assault-style weapons ban and forbidding people on no-fly lists from acquiring firearms. He said he also supports a 10-day waiting period for buying a gun and legislation that would require safe storage of household weapons. “What we’re doing now and what we’ve been doing for decades isn’t working. And, what this is is an effort to solve a problem and to an idea out there that can work and to start a conversation about using non lethal self defense methods that will save lives,” said Tillemann.

Good job, Tillemann, and, of course he supports measures which make it harder for law abiding citizens to protect themselves using their 2nd Amendment Rights.

Good strategy, Democrats. Go with it.

    The DERP is strong with this one.

    It sure will save lives, if it helps keep him from getting elected.

    Cops have found that suspects under the influence of certain types of illegal drugs are highly resistant to mace and oleocapsin sprays. Even tasers can have reduced effect — and I’ll bet Tillemann wouldn’t support widespread civilian availability of tasers either.

    This idiot clearly either has no clue how easy it is to get put — mistakenly — on a no-fly list, or he doesn’t give a shit. Either disqualifies him from public office.

    The same people who want to restrict firearms also are leading the charge to restrict pepper sprays and similar items. This guy needs to get with the program. In DC, for example, your pepper spray has to be registered with police.
