Worth noting

Taser will implement background checks on buyers of their products:

Taser International Inc. is hiring a company to conduct criminal background checks and verify the identity of private citizens trying to buy its stun guns.

Taser chose Atlanta-based ChoicePoint Asset Co. to provide online criminal background information and identity verification, said Rick Smith, Taser’s co-founder and chief executive.

He said the checks confirm Taser’s commitment to ensuring its devices, “designed for personal safety and citizen defense, are purchased for those very reasons.”

    It won’t stop the police from using them on little old ladies, guys in wheel chairs, or 12 year olds that are truant.

    I have long thought that the downfall for taser would be the use of these guns for armed robbery. Just walk up behind someone, zap’em, take their wallet and walk away.
