Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 06, 2014

A 26-year-old gunman who opened fire at a small, Christian university in Seattle -- killing one student and wounding three more with shotgun blasts -- was stopped while reloading by a heroic student who pepper sprayed the gunman and tackled him to the ground. Jon Meis, a 26-year-old engineering student working as a security monitor in the class building where the shooting occurred, risked his life and ended the murderous rampage, eyewitnesses said. Shooting suspect Aaron Ybarra, 26, is in custody. He was a janitor who was fixated on the Columbine shooting massacre, police said.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a condiment.

Yea, it works so great cops carry only OC spray...wait they carry other tools like guns because not every tool works for all problems. Glad he was able to stop him, yet I bet he was wishing he had more then OC spray at that point. OC spray sucks because you have to be so close for it to be effective and it is extremly easy to get others with it.
