Any thought on this? Bizarre Self-Defense

Sensei John Vesia at Martial Views brings up some good questions here. Check it out: http://bit.ly/sP2tGE

Please comment here or there.

Yeah, I saw this in my feed this morning--honestly, I don't think it's that unusual. I don't think it is quite as effective as OC spray but I'm sure it would burn the eyes and lungs. My main problem with it is that I suspect there are probably going to be some very lasting harmful effects from doing that. OC spray isn't that much more expensive than RAID and there is a lot less liability involved.

Dang Noah! You're always leaving the great comments! Can't you let someone else make an awesome comment first?? Kidding.

Great point. I like Vesia's about the liability of a bat versus wasp spray. I think a handgun has almost no liability if used properly in this instance. But consult your attorney!

Lol, I will have to work on that! In any case, I agree that firearms tend to have no added liability. I happen to live in a state that allows me to carry a concealed (or not concealed) firearm without any sort of permit, so that's a plus. :P
