    Because it's funny to watch them flop around after being hit by a Taser?

    If someone wants to carry one, more power to them, it just stinks that we're on of the non free states when it comes to so many things

    Funny you say that...

    I'd rather be shot by a firearm. At least then, I might have a chance at living. (I have a pacemaker, and if I get tazed, from what I understand, it's instant game over for me.)
