Democratic House Candidate Sprays Himself In The Face With Pepper Spray To Promote ... Gun Control?

Levi Tillemann, a Democratic congressional candidate in Colorado, decided to protest the Second Amendment in the most bizarre way ever: By being sprayed in the face with pepper spray.

In a new campaign ad, Tillemann rips President Trump’s move to arm school officials and teachers in classrooms with guns. He says pepper spray is a far better alternative and would cost much less.

“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new,” Tilleman says in the ad. “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.”

"Pepper spray doesn’t cost much and it can be safely stored in a break glass in case of emergency cabinet. But it’s powerful and won’t accidentally kill a kid,” he says. “Trust me, this will stop anybody in their tracks.”

Then he takes a steady spray to the face. "Washington needs more doers," he says.

He is then shown dunking his head into a bucket of water. "It's incredibly painful," Tillemann says, his eyes red and puffy. "And now I just can't see anything."

"Wow, that's intense," he says as he sprays himself in the face with a hose. "It's like lava in your eyes."

Then a narrator says, "For less than $1 per person in the U.S., we can have a security can of pepper spray in every classroom in America."

"I'll go to the mat for our kids," Tillemann says.

Tillemann faces a party primary in less than two weeks.
