Taser is set to produce a lady's version, and the antigun police organizations (I wish they'd interviewed the pro-gun ones, such as Nat'l Sheriffs' Assn) are worried.
(Egad--one concern is that it might be used against police. Look, what's the advantage of a taser over a gun? It lets you capture a resisting individual alive. When was the last time an officer encountered a thug who wanted to capture him alive? And if we actually can find a criminal who is squeamish about killing a cop, and spends $300 for a Taser so as to avoid it -- what's wrong with that?]
I can remember when DC used to outlaw pepper spray and stunning devices (I think Boston still requires a permit to have the spray). Made you rather wonder whose side they were on.
