Tasers for self-defense

Tasers for home use? Guns for police officers? It's not a bad idea.

If someone is in my home, wishing to do me harm..or harm to my family...the last thing I want is a less than lethal "alternative".

That person or persons need/s to be aerated and now....not shocked to make them more angry.

You have a point. After you Taser somebody, you have to deal with them.

On the hand, it's a lot harder to kill yourself on purpose or you family members by accident with a Taser.

Yeah, your taser'd run out of batteries before too awfully long.

If you want to kill yourself, for realsies, you're going to succeed, gun or not.

On killing a family member, by accident, hopefully the user of the gun is of sound enough mind to know his backdrop if having to shoot at an attacker. That's a tough one.

But as far as accidents go, I'd say that people need to wise up and not be such morons, leaving guns around kids...get a safe and teach your children that guns aren't toys and are only to be handled when you're supervising.

There's no shortage of morons in the world...that's for sure.
