  1. I have experienced tear gas on two occasions, once diffusely in a controlled space and another time during army war games where our troop formation was “attacked” with canister grenades. While the first experience was quite unpleasant, the second was worse by orders of magnitude. Those soldiers who couldn’t get their gas masks on in time either fled the scene in panic, or fell to the ground in excruciating pain with bodily fluids flowing from their eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Sorry for the graphic account, but people need to understand the effect this weapon has on human beings and other creatures.
