Making Stun Guns and Tasers Legal in MA

Dstun-gun-no-3oes it make sense to you that stun guns and tasers are not legal for private citizens in Massachusetts?  In a state where it IS legal to buy, own and use firearms, shouldn't everyone have the same access to these less lethal self-defense tools? Michael Rosman is trying to make that happen.

 

Who is Michael Rosman?  He is, a lawyer at a conservative/libertarian public interest law firm, the Center for Individual Rights in Washington DC.  He is working to bring a case in Massachusetts to challenge this law.

 

I have volunteered to put together a small group, an "association in fact," of people who would like to see this law changed.  This is not, and never will be, a request for donations. 

 

It might involve having Michael Rosman represent us, but it will not cost you anything; his law firm and this effort are funded by other people and organizations, not by you and me.  It may involve becoming plaintiffs in this lawsuit, if you want.

 

Interested?  Curious?  Email me, bates@aware.org for more information.

    Really and why would you have been hit with a taser several times?are you a criminal,was it by accident?if so then go after the people responsible. tasers are the most effective non lethal self defense weapons available. If someone is threatening your life than wouldn't it make sense to have the best non lethal tools available to protect oneself?if law abiding citizens are not permitted to have what's necessary to defend themselves in real life situations then only the criminals will have weapons. I for one believe this state needs to make tasers legal as a matter of fact it is a form of arms and should be considereed a constitutional right. Back asswards how this state does thing. Yes I'm legally allowed to own a gun and use it for self defense purposes of needed but not a taser Which is less lethal?give me a break. we have fools making the laws here and they should he challenged
