Vanessa Hudgens, Taser self-defense advocate?

A while back I was hoping I could get a celebrity product endorsement. At the time, Paris Hilton was in the news and I thought If I could get her to buy a Pink Taser and tell all her socialite friends she bought it from WorthProtectionSecurity.com, I could drum up some big business.
No such luck.
But [...]

Don’t Tase the Emu, Bro!

Sheriff’s Deputies of Bay County in Florida ended up deploying a Taser on an unruly emu. Yes, an emu. Apparently, a female emu named Plop-Plop, escaped from a farm and ended up camping out in a pen with some horses and goats.
Local deputies were called to aid in her capture, but Plop-Plop “went kind of [...]

Who Would Win a Fight, a Taser or a Stun Gun?

VS.

How many volt stun gun should I buy?
I’ve seen them online from 80,000 volts to 2 million volts. Does the voltage really matter? What is the difference between lower and higher voltage?
Is it the amount time the attacker is disabled, or the amount of pain he will feel?
What is the advantage to buying higher voltage [...]

Wanna buy a Taser, Paris Hilton?

I was surfing some gadget review site today, not sure why, but I ended up skimming a new cell phone write-up. One of the lines that caught my attention was the line “…solid option compared to the (other cell phone) — but only if you live and die by instant messaging and you don’t mind [...]

Mixed Martial Arts Champ KO’d by Stun Gun

Every now and then I get someone asking me if stun guns really work. When I offer to “show” them, they always change their mind. And I don’t even mean driving the stun gun into their abdomen and unleashing 10 seconds of full power. All they need to do is hold out their finger and [...]

Taser Debate, Round 12337478…

The following excerpts come from an article out of Dothan, Alabama’s DothanEagle.com. Apparently a guy was stopped for not wearing his seat belt, tried to run from the police officer, got zapped by a Taser, and ended up in the hospital. So of course all these bleeding heart whiners are up in arms.
So lets break [...]

Guns Don’t Kill, People Do.

This anti-weapon, anti-gun, anti-Taser babble is really getting ridiculous by all these ignorant bleeding heart liberals. Let’s get one thing straight, again…
Guns don’t kill, people do. Tasers don’t kill, people do.
It is not the weapon performing the action, it is the physical being behind the implement. You can be killed with a #2 pencil [...]

Whack-a-Mom at Chuck E. Cheese

You don’t often expect to hear about a fight breaking out
at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant unless you are a plastic
mole getting the snot beat out of you with a foam hammer
in Whack-a-Mole. This time however, it looks like a grownup
Whack-a-Mom game materialized in the Natick, MA pizza
family fun place.
Apparently, the mother of a 9-year-old [...]

Your Life is Worth More than the Cost of a Taser

It simply amazes me how much money people will spend on certain things, and not give a thought about how to protect themselves.
What is your life worth in dollars? What about the life of your spouse or other loved one? Most people would say can’t put a price on it.
How about some values on [...]

Don’t Tase Me Bro!

“Don’t Tase me, Bro!” was yelled by Andrew Meyer as he
was pinned to the floor by police. After the prankster

Kerry, and then resisted arrest he was tasered while being
caught on tape.

Meyer’s voice became louder and more aggressive as he
continued his rant. When he refused [...]
