So he is saying Pepper spray can replace a gun and then wants to put Pepper spray throughout the schools, I can see where this will go

I've practiced with the Pepper Blaster and can hit a head size target at 21 feet.

I have used Mace (stream) at the same distance and I think the Pepper Blaster is easier to use and the gel does not get blown like liquid does.

I haven't been Maced in a long time but I'm sure some of our young officers are getting pepper sprayed in training and might chime in.

It is unwise to use pepper spray in a confined space (Classroom, hallway). I'm not sure if gel will have the same effect in a confined space. But also, I believe that the canisters require some monitoring to ensure they are under sufficient pressure to discharge without affecting the user.

So, where is this guy's call to take away police officers' sidearms and replace them all with pepper spray? If guns aren't necessary, then they aren't necessary, right? Would love to hear the LEO feedback to this guy if he takes his proposal to its logical conclusion.

We need to raise so much Civil Rights Hell in Maryland that their attention shifts back here. How we do that I don't know, but there are greater minds than mine here...

I don't think he needs a pepper spray,he needs a roll of toilet paper, because when he sees someone with a handgun, he already S.....himself

Been sprayed multiple times with multiple agencies. OC is a compliance tool not a self defense weapon against someone with a firearm, knife, bat, etc...

Does it suck? Yes it does.
Can you fight through it? Yes you can.

If I'm intent on shooting you and you spray me in an attempt to stop me - you're still getting shot.

If I'm intent on stabbing you and you spray me in an attempt to stop me - you're still getting stabbed.

Etc, Etc, Etc.....

Remarkably similar to some of the tools and trolls in the MGA. They were shocked to learned that mags could be reloaded.
