    Anti-gun people like to brag how the hero "didn't need a gun" to stop the shooter, but fail to recognize that the hero in this case used pepper spray (technically illegal on campus, since students are supposedly forbidden from carrying weapons). He also had perfect time and came at the attacker fast and strong.

    If he's missing any of those things - pepper spray, timing, speed, strength - it's likely the SPU shooter could have kept on killing more people. So props to the hero for taking a chance and saving lives.

    He did SOMETHING. He didn't just wait in line to be killed. Good for him.

    We have a no gun / no weapon policy at the school where I teach.
    We also have a lock down / intruder procedure. Which I have to ( and will ) follow.
    That being stated , I will do whatever is necessary to make sure my students get home safely each day.

    I'm glad that fella in the OP did what he had to do to stop the threat ... rules be damned.
