Colorado Democrat: Use a Ballpoint Pen to Fight a Gunman

Are you kidding me?! First off, to do this, you have to wait till he's reloading -- in other words AFTER he's already shot a lot of people. Secondly, does anyone here REALLY want to have to rely on ballpoint pen to stop a gunman? Those pen wielders were improvising? in desperation, and they did it heroically. But wouldn't you rather have a gun, and maybe the ability to return fire and stop the guy before he can get more than one or two shots off at most?

I touched on this yesterday but it's worth mentioning again. Recently, Colorado Democrat Jessie Uliberri argued people should defend themselves against a madman shooter with.... ballpoint pens.

Two things wrong with this. The first being that Uliberri argues people should waiting until a crazy person reloads before taking action, or in other words, wait until they are done shooting people. The use of a firearm for defense in this case wouldn't require a waiting period but rather would stop a madman from continuing his rampage. The second, ballpoint pens?...
