Re: “Tragic lesson for all of us

A tragic lesson, and perhaps in this one instance, a taser might have helped. But say you're at home with your children and someone breaks a window and is obviously coming in in the middle of the night. You've warned the person that this isn't the right place for them, dialed 911 who will send someone over in the next 15 minutes or so, and they're still coming in. You aim your taser and, hoping that the adrenalin kick of fear for your family lets you aim accurately, manage to taser the intruder. He's down thrashing on the ground...you've now got 5 seconds to decide what to do with him before he recovers, and up to 15 minutes before the police show up. Or bear spray? A large amount of the population isn't affected, and what if the intruder is armed? You've now got a somewhat blinded, very annoyed armed person threatening your family. What's your next step? My suggestion is to quit watching Hollywood movies and learn what the REAL options and limitations are for your 'recommendations'.
