Tasers instead of guns? Really?
Giving Tasers to cops in a real life-and-death situation will do them no good to really defend themselves. They should just keep the guns but also give officers Tasers to use in a situation that does not have lives at stake.
If you were at a standoff with an armed man or woman, would you want to have a Taser or a gun? Of course, you would want something that would actually have some sort of major impact on the attacker.
Yes, the Taser is a good idea to put with the gun as a sort of “combo package,” but to only have a Taser is not a good idea.
