Taser Use Should Be Monitored and Used Judiciously

Comments Off

An excellent editorial on the dangers of the Taser stun gun can be found in today’s Sarasota Herald Tribune. The piece mentions that the Taser gun is safer than a handgun, its dangers can not be overlooked. The jolt of electricity and wire barbs that hook into the victim can be lethal. The editorial correctly points out that the stun gun should only be used as a last resort by law enforcement. It is hard to justify the company’s marketing efforts toward civilians who are not trained in the proper use of such a weapon.
