TASERS are pricey but practical. The $369 C2 is about the size of an electric shaver. Available in “fashion pink,” a C2 can incapacitate an aggressor at 15 feet. Bonus! You can now buy one with Anti-Felon Identification (AFID): “A system to deter misuse through enhanced accountability, AFID includes bar-coded serialization of each cartridge and disperses confetti-like ID tags upon activation.” Tag! You’re it! But really, is a TASER a suitable substitute for a gun? Surprisingly, the company’s web-based ad copy touts the TASER for people looking for the next best thing: “I bought my wife a TASER because she wasn’t comfortable using my gun. I wanted her to have the next best thing.” What’s your take? Would you feel “under-gunned” with a TASER? If you carried both, would you worry about using the wrong shaver—I mean weapon?
