    “When he read that had happened, he knew an electric current could be used without danger,” Ms. Cover said.

    The relatives of the 20 people killed in Canada with Tasers might disagree.

    Some guy I used to know would send his friends to the store for something and then lock the door. When they got back they'd say the doors locks, he'd put the tazer to the knob and say try in now. I think I almost died when I saw him do this but its not really that funny when you think about it, ................. Yeah it is :haha:. I always visited him with a pair of deer skin gloves after that.

    Gee Vince, you can be such a buzz kill. :tongue:

    FWIW: I think the original model invented by Dr. Cover was a lot less powerful than those used in recent years.
