A Colorado Democrat running for congress recently tried to make a point about gun control by having himself pepper sprayed. He wants pepper spray to be in schools for protection instead of guns. The resulting video is bizarre and hilarious.
The Daily Caller’s Smoke Room reports:
COLORADO DEMOCRAT ADVOCATES FOR GUN CONTROL BY PEPPER-SPRAYING HIS EYEBALLS IN NEAT NEW AD [WATCH]
A Democrat running for a seat in Colorado’s sixth congressional district is taking an unorthodox approach to getting the vote out.
Levi Tillemann, a progressive candidate running for a House seat this year, released an ad last week that he hopes will shine a light on alternative approaches to gun control in schools and other soft-target areas.
“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new,” he says in the video. “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.”
The entire 2-minute video, aptly titled “This Will Save Lives,” is entertaining on just about every level.
You’ve got to love out-of-the-box thinkers like Levi Tillemann. Just an earnest, stand-up guy with big hopes and dreams to solve gun violence with a gallon of pepper spray and a pinch of good luck.

ROFL thought this was an SNL Skit for a second.
