Tasers Are Now Legal In Michigan
Bay City, Michigan – Residents of Michigan now have a less-lethal force they can use to stop an attack. A new law took effect two weeks ago, allowing Tasers for use by private citizens.
Gov. Rick Snyder signed a law back in May making Michigan the 44th state to allow residents to carry Tasers. They still have to jump through hoops and meet certain criteria, but it’s a step in the right direction. If a person has a concealed pistol license and takes a Taser training class, they can possess the weapon.
“People have waited a long time thinking, it’s a Taser, a Taser’s designed to go and make it so you’re incapacitated, but it doesn’t go with the threat of causing a life,” explained Glenn Duncan, owner of Duncan’s Gun Shop. Duncan plans on carrying the Taser C2, the civilian version of the police model.
The Taser has two metal probes connected by wires that shoot into an attacker’s body. The ensuing electrical charge causes a loss of muscle control, disorientation and ends with the attacker collapsing to the ground.
Michigan is a little late to the party, but better late than never. Only one question remains; When are the remaining six states going to stop protecting the criminals and treat private citizens like adults?
