Concerns about “usage creep,” in which tasers are used when other methods might be more appropriate, were raised in the 2005 report Stun Gun Fallacy: How the Lack of Taser Regulation Endangers Lives , published by the ACLU of Northern California in 2005.


Tasers are aggressively marketed by the manufacturer, Taser International. Their latest model, the C2, is designed for personal use (only in self-defense of course) and comes in 9 designer colors.
