Self Defense-Tasers in Schools-Is It Time
It is very sad to even have to be thinking about this subject-the safety of our children in school. The unfortunate events of the last few weeks have parents worrying more and more about their children's safety in school. The very fact that there is so much publicity on the subject belies the gravity of the topic in today's society. It seems everyone from President Bush on down to the local school board is talking and worried about the subject.
Is it time to start thinking of another way (other than guards armed with firearms) to protect our children? Are tasers a possible answer? Could tasers make a difference?
The advanced taser is a powerful conducted energy weapon that is non lethal yet can incapacitate an assailant from 15 feet away. They are NOT stun guns. They are more powerful than stun guns in the 18-24 watt range versus a stun gun at 7-14 watts. Tasers have an almost 100% track record in effectiveness with more stopping power than a 9 mm handgun.
Tasers use EMD (electro-muscular disruption) technology which sends an 18-26 watt pulsed energy electrical signal that completely overrides the central nervous system which controls muscle function rendering the assailant completely immobile yet causing no long lasting damage or injury.
More and more police forces are using tasers. Many security companies arm their personnel with tasers. Tasers have become popular as a non lethal self defense weapon for homeowners as well. Why? Because they save lives and are so effective.
Tasers have already been used in schools in New Mexico, North Carolina, and Florida where the use of tasers quelled violent or potentially violent situations with no loss of life.
Obviously many questions need to be raised and discussed in an open forum. But maybe it is time for those responsible for school safety-parents, administrators, and police alike give serious consideration to this non lethal self defense weapon to protect our children.
If you think crime can only happen to the other guy you are wrong. The "other guy" is thinking the same thing and YOU are that "other guy". There is a reason why they call it self defense. You have to protect yourself, your family, your home and business!!
