What now? Will Cuomo plan on another "midnight emergency," to pass a controversial bill restricting their use, with no hearings, no testimony, no time for opponents? As a law abiding gun owner in NY, I applaud the Court's decision. I can't wait to legally purchase a device for my wife and daughter.


New York, being opposed to citizens having the ability to adequately defend themselves, either within our outside their homes, has had a longtime ban on the possession of electronic dart (TASER) and stun guns. Owning one is a misdemeanor and displaying or threatening to use one is a felony.



But not any more. In a decision announced today, US District Court Judge David N. Hurd has struck down the state’s ban under the Heller decision, ruling that the prohibition is a violation of the Second Amendment.

Hurray, great victory for freedom. They'll be sold at corner stores to thugs to use on people for fun and robbery.

That's your takeaway?.... SMH

You don't stop crime at the expense of law abiding citizen's constitutional rights.

Rule of thumb; a weapon gets used for attack more than defense as defense requires an attack to be possible.

That said, guns are one thing and tasers are another. Making them freely available will only arm more attackers than defenders as attackers are looking to attack, defenders are victim not always prepared to defend.

Regardless of this, the forefathers would've been upset over young men not being able to get tasers to taze each other and for crime.

Don't taze me bro! *zzzttttt*

There is no sane reason less lethal 'arms' should be banned.

Good for the USDC.

They don't care about our Constitutional Rights, nor do they care about us defending ourselves, family, neighbors, or property. They only care about spinning the narrative and making excuses.

To reiterate my point,

If I go buy a taser with intent to attack, I'm using it today or really soon. If you buy one to defend or for someone else to defend, statistics would say that they'll probably never even use it. Sure, some would get used for the proper purpose, but these cases numerically would be dwarfed by the number of attacks made with them if they were legal.

That could be said of a knife, or a baseball bat, or a roll of duct tape.

Get a clue.

Ten years ago I bought a tazer on eBay.

A quick peek shows you can still buy the exact same one for eight bucks- now available in colors!

Let me go ahead and amputate your pancreas.

There, now you never have to worry about dying from pancreatic cancer. Prevention is always best.

All we need now is a new federal law that bans infringements of any kind upon the second amendment.

Make it a gross misdemeanor or a class C felony in all 50 states.

Then when gun grabbing traitors in state legislatures, or congress cretins pass a new gun grabbing law they go straight to prison plus fined and removed from office.

Didnt think that one out , did you ?
Tasers are ALREADY widely available.
Except for Hawaii, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

Actually you are clueless and guns are used defensively more than you can imagine, we're talking over 2 million times a year.

Illinois court threw out/reversed a weapons ban enacted by a Chicago suburb today too.

Big win for the NRA: www.nraila.org...

It being available must mean thugs use them on you daily.
