Just pointing out there are other options. We have both guns and mace.
I wasn't trying to slam your suggestion, just asking about some of its effectiveness since I've never owned/used Bear Spray. As far as the effectiveness of a gun against someone on drugs and/or alcohol, a lot of it would depend on where they were hit.
