    Default Criminal Use of Electronic Weapons

    In the past two months I have been told by no less than 15 people that they purchased a Taser on the advice of others as an alternative to a handgun or other firearm... Well folks, for a civilian to employ a Taser you are in fact using Deadly Force, same standard as a Handgun or other Firearm. The outcome for the victim may be less but you will be treated as using Deadly Force under Maine Law.

    What an idiotic law! ~SMFH~
    I'll just bet that Trayvon Martin would have preferred it if Zimmerman would have been armed with a Taser!

    It's funny how some state laws state classify them as deadly weapons but the police can zap you with one for not signing a ticket. Just think how outraged the public would be if a cop discharged his firearm under a similar situation. Anyone who takes a hit from a Taser there is a chance that the high voltage shock could disrupt the normal sinus rhythm of the heart resulting in cardiac arrest. Hundreds of people have died from the use of Tasers.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    ...Jesus Christ and the American G.I.
    One died for your sins; the other for your freedom.

    This conversation reminds me of that guy who decided to buy his wife a Taser and tested it on himself...
