News: Jon Meis, Certified Badass

Jon Meis, a student at Seattle Pacific University, pepper-sprayed and subdued a gunman who was pausing to reload his shotgun. Meis's decisive action saved countless lives, and for that, he gets the official Shangrila Towers Certified Badass Award™:

 
(In case you were wondering, it looks like Meis likes firearms and supports the RKBA. He also apparently co-founded a school Airsoft club. Probably why he was able to counter-attack when the guy was reloading his shotgun.)

Tons of people agree he's a hero--Strangers bought everything on his wedding registry that could be purchased online. Now there's a collection:

Yup, he's a hero.

I've heard that he already has a job lined up with Boeing, which, ironically, has a strict anti-firearms policy (in fairness, they have metal detectors and security guards, too). Hopefully they let him keep the pepper spray.
