Read that on an injun anti-fed protest site, haha.

2017-07-29 03:03:41 UTC  


2017-07-29 03:03:43 UTC  

Use saline

2017-07-29 03:03:52 UTC  

I have sourced this directly from a doctor.

2017-07-29 03:03:57 UTC  

I will ask about the Maalox shit

2017-07-29 11:38:07 UTC  

The good thing is that most of the OC will be water based OC and will Decon with water / saline and baby shampoo if they were using Oil based like I had in the army then it sucks to decon

2017-07-29 12:40:21 UTC  

Oil based spray fucks you up big time. I'm bringing some potent shit that The military isn't allowed to use any more. I "borrowed" it from an armory storage before I got out of the navy.

2017-07-29 13:18:28 UTC  

ya probably not a good idea to bring stolen, military-grade weaponry.

2017-07-29 13:37:46 UTC  

Right wingers having access to stolen, military grade weaponry is a good propaganda meme though 😂

2017-07-29 14:01:16 UTC  

The military stoped using most oil based spray being it starts on fire if you taze some one after you spray hem... happened a bunch of times in the detention facilities in Iraq

2017-07-29 14:39:06 UTC  

@HueTheHand haha. Looks like we might have just discovered a new punishments for trannys!!!

2017-07-29 14:39:57 UTC  

Flaming fag spray when?

2017-07-29 14:46:25 UTC  


2017-07-29 16:06:08 UTC  

@Hand Banana I personally will have maalox, water+dawn solution, and saline in spray bottles in my kit. Pretty sure others are also carrying spray bottles of counteragents. 👌

2017-07-29 16:28:08 UTC  

I read J&J baby shampoo + water is also effective?

2017-07-29 16:31:27 UTC  

^ Yes baby shampoo is great for both mace and pepper spray bring that shit

2017-07-29 16:59:22 UTC  

I'm bringing an emt, he says do not mix maalox and water until needed to keep it sterile

2017-07-29 18:20:26 UTC  

Good old milk helps with the capsaicin (active agent in pepper spray).

2017-07-29 18:30:46 UTC  

Water and Soap are reccomended. The baby shampoo is also a good idea.

2017-07-29 18:31:39 UTC  

Pretty sure the Milk thing is just a bad troll.

2017-07-29 20:35:59 UTC  

I think the milk works, but who wants to keep it cold while they're at a rally? And if not, who wants to be sprayed in the face with warm milk when there are other alternatives?

2017-07-29 20:38:03 UTC  

@Madison we will have a cooler.

2017-07-29 20:38:20 UTC  

but still yeah, a spray bottle of baby shampoo and water

2017-07-29 20:38:42 UTC  


2017-07-29 23:46:45 UTC  

Don't forget terrycloth towels too

2017-07-30 19:37:15 UTC  

^Cheapest best rated option I could find, it's Amazon prime too

2017-07-30 19:37:27 UTC  

Stay hydrated brothers

2017-07-30 19:37:33 UTC  

And sisters

2017-07-30 22:01:06 UTC  

Maalox is good for pepper spray as well

2017-07-30 22:01:18 UTC  

Any antacid that won't harm the eyes

2017-07-30 22:21:57 UTC

2017-07-30 23:22:12 UTC  

Are we all bringing fidget spinners or...?

2017-07-30 23:31:36 UTC  

VA law bans items that look like ninja stars

2017-07-31 00:20:32 UTC  


2017-07-31 00:26:49 UTC  

How will I soothe my tism then?

2017-07-31 12:31:05 UTC  

@khaos156-WV a simple internet search would have spared you the indignity of labeling well-meaning advice - from personal experience, no less - a "bad troll"

2017-07-31 15:49:53 UTC  

What's the general consensus on what to wear/bring defensive gear or normal clothing?

2017-07-31 16:00:32 UTC  

dress nicely. Khakis and a polo or semi casual button down

2017-07-31 17:08:11 UTC  

I'd recommend smart looking, neat clothing. Personally I'm not a big fan of the whole paramilitary or LARPing look. I believe khakis and a collared shirt is more effective optics.
Breathable, light material for the heat.
Good shoes or boots with ankle support and tread for obvious reasons
