Connecticut residents may soon carry TASER Devices outside the home

Currently, residents of Connecticut can only keep a TASER Device in their home. But now, some forward thinking lawmakers in Hartford are finally considering a bill that would allow them to carry TASER devices for personal protection wherever they go. Let’s face it, not all criminal acts occur within the confines of your own home. CT state law dictates a fine of up to $500, up to three years in jail or both to any law abiding citizen that is caught with a Taser outside their domicile.

TASER devices are not considered firearms by the U.S. Government and can be legally carried (concealed or open) without a permit in 43 other US states.

In police studies, they have found that TASER Devices may have a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. TASER Devices, not to be confused with contact stun guns, shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. This device packs 50,000 volts, which travels through the wires and over-rides the target’s central nervous system providing incredible take down power, even through 2 inches of clothing.

While firearms are also widely popular self defense weapons, not everyone wants to carry a gun that has the potential for taking a life in self-defense, even the life of a low life thug attempting to harm them or their family. Traditional stun guns, which are also popular and effective, do require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER C2 can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER C2 eliminates many problems some individuals have, providing a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape dangerous situations to contact the police.

Hopefully the other couple of states that still restrict TASER Device use by law abiding citizens will follow Connecticut’s lead and reconsider their pro-criminal ways and allow their citizens to remain on equal ground.

  1. Do you have details of the bill? I tried searching the state legislative site and cannot find it.

    I’m not sure where the exact details on the actual bill are published. I am posting off of the news story carried on a couple news sites ( (article and news video) and

  3. Hope they can monitor sales of these “bad boys” so as not to fall in the abusive hands.

    These devices have a pretty good anti-abuse mechanism built in. Normal law-abiding citizens wishing to carry a TASER C2 for self-defense purposes should have no problem acquiring this highly effective personal protection tool. However, to further promote responsible ownership, the TASER C2 will only function after the owner completes a background check through the manufacturer to prevent misuse. As always, purchasers MUST be 18 years old or older.

    To further enhance the safety of these devices falling into the wrong hands, TASER® C2™ cartridges have a serial numbered tags in their Anti-Felon Identification system. When a TASER C2 is fired, it also discharges 20-30 serialized paper tags when deployed.

    The police can later retrieve this confetti from the scene and contact the manufacturer to get the name of the owner of the TASER device, hopefully allowing police to track any potential misuse.

    While no system is 100% fool-proof (criminal-proof), it sure beats the 0% tracking of a pistol bought out of the trunk of some drug dealer’s car…
