    Default Rules on being attacked by protesters with bear spray

    So with all these antifa people assaulting people with bear spray what are you allowed to do as defense?

    We have elections coming up and I believe there will be issues.

    “Your Honor, I suffer from COPD and could not breathe, I feared for my life as I realized they had sprayed me with an asphyxiant! In response, and in my defense, I sprayed them with a blood-letting spray of (insert favorite caliber ammunition here) in the hopes it would cause them to stop trying to kill me.”

    I believe a percentage of people are going to have life-threatening reactions if sprayed. Some will react with a surprise allergy, some with asthma histories. Anyone spraying another with bear spray does so with reckless disregard for potential danger to the sprayed.

    I think if I were with my wife, for example, knowing her respiratory history, I would have to take action that would likely put me in jail.

    They sprayed an unknown substance in your face. Then you have an extreme reaction to it. How are you supposed to know it is "just a little bear spray".

    AFAIK they assaulted you. The only problem I see is if they really hit you with it you can't see. So if you start shooting who know how many "innocent bystanders" you will hit.

    And If you hit one you are fucked.

    Interesting fact about bear spray. It's weaker than the pepper spray for self defense. I didn't know this until I picked up two cans on sale to respond in kind should I find myself in such a situation. Instead, I need to get some cans of the good stuff that I used to carry as a Trooper.

    They spray with their bear spray and I spray with my bear spray. Not my problem that their bear spray is a spicy liquid and mine is a JHP.

    Rule number 1: Don’t be in any place where mass protests will be taking place.

    Rule number 2: Don’t get hit in the face with pepper spray.
