In an online ad released last Friday, Democratic congressional candidate Levi Tillemann pepper-sprayed himself to show support for gun control and opposition to arming teachers.

Tillemann’s ad starts out by displaying a parent, who is scared for her child’s school and an educator, who is concerned by gun violence in schools.

The candidate calls for schools to arm teachers with “non-lethal self-defense tools.” He then holds up a can of pepper spray.

“Trust me, this will stop anybody,” Tillemann says, before spraying himself in the eyes with the substance.

Most of the rest of the ad focuses on Tillemann’s efforts to clear the pepper spray from his eyes, while pro-gun control statistics run across the screen.

Tillemann is running in Colorado’s 6th congressional district.
