A democrat congressional candidate pepper sprayed himself in the face in a bid to promote gun control. Levi Tillemann criticized the suggestion to arm school officials and teachers with guns and claimed pepper spray is a better alternative to stop potential school shooters.
Notice Tillemann didn’t shoot himself in the face to show which method of self-defense is actually more effective...
“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new,” Tilleman says in the video. “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.” Of course, as most liberals seem to forget, they claim those who are armed won’t actually shoot at a gunman, so what makes him think that those carrying pepper spray would be willing to approach an active shooter and try to hit him the spray? Again, the logic fails when confronted with leftists’ own talking points.
Tillemann is trying to woo anti-gun voters in the upcoming party’s primary in less than two weeks, in the blue state of Colorado, according to Fox News, and his latest pepper spray stunt should look like nothing less than the actions of a lunatic to a logical person.
You can watch the democrat pepper spray himself here:
“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,” he continued. “Trust me, this will stop anybody in their tracks.” Sure, if you can get close enough through the hail of bullets.
The Democrat then proceeded to close his eyes and began spraying the pepper spray in his face. He’s later seen trying to wash off his face by dunking his head into some water and spraying himself with a hose. “It’s incredibly painful, now I can’t see anything,” he said. “Wow, that’s intense.” Tillemann doesn’t compare the “intense” pain to that of a gunshot wound though, so his experiment is less than scientific. It’s an emotional plea and nothing more.
So let’s arm liberals with pepper spray while the maniacs still have guns. Brilliant, democrats. Has no one on the left heard the saying “never bring a knife to a gunfight?”
Tillemann, a former Department of Energy official during the presidency of Barack Obama, made gun control the key issue of his campaign. He doubled-down on the removal of people’s rights on his website saying that pepper spray, not guns, should be “be made widely available as quickly as possible” for teachers and school officials to combat potential school shooters. “The time has come to move beyond apologies and half measures and fight for real solutions to gun violence in our community. Help us win this fight,” said the guy who literally pepper sprayed himself to prove Democrats are once again, wrong when it comes to self-defense.
It looks like it is true that IQs are declining at a rapid rate.
If this idiot could stop me from killing him with my firearm using his can of pepper spray I would agree to his proposal.
Menzo, I would’ve LOVED to have been the one spraying him. Can’t fix stupidity. Can’t fix libturds.
Hit ’em with a shot of bear repellent! The idiots I mean… I’ll keep my lead sprayer.
Pepper spray can hit a target 10 feet away and be effective. A bullet can travel at 2500 feet per second. This is as asinine as the “mini bat” idea…
If pepper spray is so effective at stopping shooters, then maybe he should lobby the defense department to arm the military with only pepper spray. That’ll show them terrists!
Please tell me people won’t actually vote for this imbecile
Some will, since his district encompasses a lot of the eastern and southern Denver suburbs. However, he is up against the former Sec. of State, Mike Coffman. Coffman is the incumbent, a Republican, a Marine Reserve Officer and OIF Vet. I don’t think Coffman has much to worry about, but it is Denver and is full of Kalifornicators.
Someone needs to take his pepper spray away.
Another fine example of “You CAN’T fix STUPID!!!”
Just when you think you’ve seen it all from these leftist lunatics….
don’t know much about pepper spray, but if one would wear a scuba diving mask or goggles or something,…. would it still be effective????
Not nearly as effective.
Hahaha! Levi Dumbass for Congress.
good thing he’s not in California…they would fine him for wasting all that water
If this dumb-arse idea goes ahead, next thing they will be pushing will be a ban on all goggles on school grounds.
Don’t want the criminals protected from that “powerful” pepper spray.
Well, they warn educators who work with retards
to take frequent vacations. Stupidity is contagious.
Unfortunately, this stunt will get him votes.
I saw that white rape victims in Northern Europe were
told not to use pepper spray. It’s racist.
Levi: another dual citizen, no doubt.
Crank it up to 11 and put it in a super soaker then maybe.
Also automatic jail if any of the staff ever uses it on a student armed with anything less than a projectile weapon…
I imagine that this jackass never heard the phrase, “bringing a knife to a gun fight”.
I guess we have to tell stupid people not to bring accelerated condiments to a gun fight. If you want teachers to have access to a can of spray stuff, just tell them to keep a can of long distance wasp spray in their desk. I have heard it can be as nasty as pepper spray. And Maybe give the teachers bullet proof vests as well because they will likely get shot for being dicks and spraying the shooter with pepper spray. Pepper spray is cheap and effective. Don’t forget that goggles are also cheap and effective.
“keep a can of long distance wasp spray”
Standard equipment for a NYC taxi driver I’m told.
Kevin2, wasp spray is definitely more effective than pepper spray and you can also blind someone with it. The last sentence of the article said, “IQs are declining at a rapid rate.” They’ve ALREADY been near rock bottom for a long, long time. There is no known cure for liberal stupidity.
Someone once said this and it has a lot of merit. “A conservative believes what he sees, a liberal sees what he believes”. It sums up their mindset that is representative of children.
The Deplorable Braveheart
The very large containers of pepper spray serve a purpose. Under civil disorder, if your car is surrounded by potentially violent people, persuasion of a less than lethal nature is good to have.
Effective range of an AR – at least 500 yards (depending on barrel length, ammo, etc.). Effective range of your average pistol – at least 25 yards depending on caliber. Effective range of pepper spray – 4 to 15 feet. Effective range of wasp spray – 20 to 30 feet. Those teachers armed with either pepper spray or wasp spray will need full body armor. How stupid can you get?
Stupid is as stupid does. Who would marry this moron? If he were my friend, father, uncle or whatever… I would disown the moron. Stupid to compare spray to firearms deterrent!
Geesh this is so effin stupid!
He’s the wimp moron that will run when he’s faced with violence. Puss
I am at a loss for words
That, ladies and gentlemen, was the first time in the history of the world that a polecat sprayed himself!!
I wonder if Levi is Jewish ?
He’s going to take your firearms and means of self defense away by force using men with firearms while he pepper sprays himself.
The mentally ill are running the asylum
I just bought a new pepper spray dispenser..Glock 41 4th gen..It dispenses .45 cal 185 grain pepper balls at 1000+ fps…
Don’t ever give this guy a real gun……
Pepper spray has its uses, and should be in every preppers supplies. It also works on vicious animals.
It’s great for low level conflicts when you are in the right. Otherwise it’s assault and battery to a prosecutor.
There are many gun free zones where you can have pepper spray.
There are people who put hotter stuff than pepper spray on their food, they can be immune the effects. Spray someone who is immune, and you can expect a good ars whooping or worse.
This looks like a Saturday Night Live fake commercial. Gave me a good laugh. Can’t believe it is real.
What a dork/dufus…..don’t try to do things that you do not know anything about.
So is his campaign slogan “Vote for me! I’m dumber than the other guy!”?
Maybe he could show how effective that pepper spray is against someone trying to kill you with a gun by going up against someone with, say, a paint ball gun too see who ends up winning the confrontation and who ends up losing.
I wish he would have been permanently blinded as a result of the stunt. I would have laughed if he would have scratched his eyes out as a result of the pain.
Pepper spray sounds like a good idea to have on hand. Make it more potent with a longer range for facing less than lethal circumstances.
I thought Idiocracy was supposed to be fiction.
Do you take requests? (It’s for gun control.)
As seen on MTVs johnny Knoxville’s jackass
Even just five years ago this would be done as a massive joke, not something serious.
This is what we get for encouraging mental health disorders!!!!
This guy is too funny. Typical Democrat. What a dumb-fuk… LMAO
You need proper Training to handle Pepper Spray for one thing or you wind up spaying yourself. I can and have been hit with Pepper Spray and can fight my way through it. Keep a Gun! Join your local militia and back Law enforcement.
Another Jew trying to disarm the Goyim? No way!
I wonder if he’s for disarming Israeli teachers?
Is the range of that little can of spray as good an as AR15?
Didn’t think so, just another Demorat moron
Another “goo” trying to disarm Americans?
Who’s gullible enough to believe he’s for disarming Israeli teachers?
