I go get my CCW class (again) for my new state in about 2 weeks. It's been a LONG time since I carried a CCW. Maybe 5 years or so. I was reading about the ramnifications of shooting someone with a pistol (again). I got to thinking about my current carry weapon, which has been a Taser C2 for over a year now. So... Say; for whatever reason, you HAD to tase someone and the deed is done, you called the cops while they were flopping and twitching. And, just FYI for those non-familiar with the C2: It will continue to cycle for 30 seconds after you fire or until you replace the trigger cover; whichever comes first. This is so you can shoot, drop it on the ground while their doin' the twitch and get away to safety. The cartridges have unique RFID confetti, registered to you when you purchase them. It is advertised to cycle 250 times on one battery pack. You could POSSIBLY hold someone at bay for a good long time with it. BUT. As always, it's going to be a your word vs. theirs after it's said and done. Just like a handgun: If there's no witnesses on your side, you got a steap slope ahead. So... What if things go South after the cops show up? It comes down do criminal defense for the GOOD guy. What then? What charges (no pun intended) would they be facing. There are documented deaths attributed to electrical non-leathal weapons. Supposedly people with heart problems (whether they know it or not) are good candidates for worm food if they get hit with a stun device. But I I don't really care about that... That's pretty evident that you could get hit with 1st degree but that's a rarity, so I don't really care about that. I'd rather hear about the types of assault charges you'd be facing if the average low life is somehow able to convince the cops they weren't there to roll you. Are they felonies? Anyone know of this? I googled it and come up with a bunch of crap about how tasers kill and blah, blah, blah. BTW, want something fun to watch? Go to youtube and type in Taser. LOL Lots of good footage there!
Give a man a match and he'll be warm for a few seconds. Light him on FIRE and he'll be warm for the rest of his life!
