The gun lovers who preach that arming American citizens to stop even more violence always ignore the fact that Wayne LaPierre was wrong.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, LaPierre, the National Rifle Associations executive vice president, infamously said after a gunman in 2012 killed 20 schoolchildren and six adults in Newtown, Conn.
Yet looked what happened Thursday.
According to police, a student building monitor named Jon Meis used pepper spray to subdue a shooter who had already killed one student and wounded a couple others at Seattle Pacific University in Washington.
Police said the actions by Meis probably saved more lives, because the gunman had extra shotgun shells he could have used after reloading.
In the larger scheme of things, Meis use of pepper spray to halt the killings are at odds with the actual facts of how often a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun.
Basically, it doesnt happen.
Its a fantasy of the NRA and its most ardent gun-rights supporters.

The fact is that it still took a weapon to stop a guy with a weapon.
That hasn’t changed.
You just cannot fix either stupid or evil.
If the shooter had a 30 round clip, the guy with the pepper spray would likely be dead before shooter had to reload.
Fair warning; after I drop you I'm going to take your pepper spray, shove it in your wound and empty it while laughing manically about gun control. ;^O
Just not this time.
idiot. I’m holding a shot gun and he has a choice of pepper spray, Colt .45 or another shotgun...I’m so frickin sure he’d pick the pepper spray. dumba## just doesn’t describe him enough.
Why did they bother calling in a bunch of uniformed guys WITH GUNS?
They’re opposed to people walking around with pepper spray too.
manically = maniacally ... ah, heck, you’ll be bleeding out so who cares about semantics!?
Mother Jones? Insightful? Har Har. Need I say more on that?
The left and its never ending misdirection on firearms and the 2nd amendment.
It's NOT about hunting, it's not about protecting yourself from criminals. Those rights are innate givens.
The thing the left refuses to acknowledge and debate is the real reason for 2A. Protecting ourselves from TYRANTS.
Guns are effective protection, deterrent and defense RE crime. But that is irrelevant to 2A. 2A is to protect us from the government. The founders made that very clear. The left refuses to discuss that because an open and free discussion would make it painfully obvious that they are defending tyrants with their attack on your gun rights.
Oh come on. Abouhalkah doesn’t really believe that we don’t need good guys with guns. She would never advocate disarming the police based on her purported theory that good guys don’t need guns. No, she just wants to disarm law abiding citizens and leave guns in the hands of criminals and police. As for her motive, I’ll leave that up to you to figure out.
Yet if police use the same pepper spray to subdue an assailant folks like Yael cry that excessive force was being used. The warped and idiotic thought processes of the left never cease to amaze me.
In a lot of states you have to have a license to carry pepper spray.
LOL. Any piece that references Mother Jones to support its point is by definition moronic. Regardless of the subject.
I rather doubt that. Abouhalkah didn't pass judgement on Meis' use of pepper spray. She doesn't really care about that. She simply doesn't want law abiding citizens to own guns.
The anti-gunners are anti-pepper spray, too.
Yup. Don’t get caught with either a gun or pepper spray in NYC.
It was against school rules for the hero to carry pepper spray. Doing what is right trumps the rules.
I would suspect that the pepper spray guy was violating the law at the college.
