  •  Pepper spray might have been adequate (0+ / 0-)

    Pepper spray wouldn't create the legal issues raised by a gun on a school playground.

    Pepper spray has some advantages over a gun. Instant effect is one of them. Bullet wounds may or may not stop someone.

    Some pepper sprays include an indelible dye that identifies the attacker. Hard for the police to miss someone with a bright orange face, though they might arrest Boehner by mistake.

    "Should" implies an obligation on her part. Defending her partner with decisive force was her right, legally and according to my ethical standards, but the one with the obligation was the other parent.

    Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.
