I'm sure everybody has heard about the Montana candidate who assaulted a reporter for asking a question. He got cited for assault and then went on to win his election.

But the most interesting point here is should reporters carry defensive weapons like pepper spray and use it when they are assaulted? I don't think they have any obligation to just accept being assaulted without defending themselves, do they?

And what would the Secret Service do if a candidate or politician they are guarding attacks someone, and the victim uses their pepper spray?
