Colorado Democrat: Use a Ballpoint Pen to Fight a Gunman

Uh, can someone tell this guy that 'the pen is mightier than the sword' is Diplomatic philosophy, not combat advice? The only way a pen would be a viable weapon is to poke out someone's eyes, or draw vulgar pictures on their leg as petty vengence after they've shot you up, and your bleeding out.

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?...
