Michigan lawmakers proposal would allow concealed gun permit holders to buy Tasers
Post by Bryan Buckner
Michigan is one of seven states that prohibits it's citizens from purchasing a non-lethal self defense taser for home, business and personal security. Residents can legally carry a handgun in Michigan but the less lethal taser is illegal...go figure? Finally, it appears that law makers may be coming to their senses. If a new proposed law passes concealed gun permit holders would be able to legally purchase the citizen tasers. This would be a small win for consumers but the potential to build on this law could lead to a larger win down the road.
Many people are simply not comfortable with a gun in their home, vehicle or business. A non-lethal yet extremely effective option is much more desirable. With five children in her home, the last thing LeeAnna Rocha wants in her home is a gun.
But the Lansing single mother also has been the victim of three burglaries within the past year, and she's convinced she needs some sort of weapon in her home to protect her family from intruders. The 35-year-old believes a Taser is a weapon she and her children can live with. Hundreds of thousands across the United States share this view.
The decision to use deadly force to protect yourself and loved ones may seem like a "no-brainier". The unfortunate truth is a 12 person jury is likely to determine if deadly force was justified. Are you prepared to deal with this? A taser or some pepper spray provide citizens with the ability to stop an attacker and get to safety; all without causing permanent harm.
Michigan has banned the carrying of a stun gun since 1976, except for police and correctional officers; it is one of only seven states that prohibit residents from using them. Come on, I can legally purchase and own a 9mm handgun; but a stun gun is against the law! Hopefully that will change very soon. The Republican-controlled Michigan Senate passed the bill Oct. 4, and it now is pending before the Republican-controlled House.
The C2 TASER is the most advanced non lethal self defense weapon available to civilians. Using Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD) technology, taser devices will stop even the most determined attackers. TASER® C2 has a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. The TASER® C2 shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible take-down power.
