Re: Axon, formerly known as Taser
Anything, literally anything, that incapacitates a person can not be guaranteed "safe". Not even a giant pillow made of goose down that weighs the opponent to the floor.
If you're firing a taser, it's because you're under physical threat (if it's not, you need better police... don't expect technology to solve your training issues). At that point, the risk of ANYTHING you do to avert that threat is that it might be a threat to the guy posing it. Might.
However, the alternative is... physical confrontation, or shooting them. At that point, I'd use a taser every time, thanks. If they were legal, I was trained, etc. No, I wouldn't necessarily use a gun at all unless my actual life was in immediate threat, I abhor guns. But that a taser might hurt even an otherwise healthy person? Yeah, sure, sorry about that. Tough luck.
The problem you have is not Tasers, not guns, and not some unspecified health risk. It's that someone is either under physical threat and needs to respond (in which case, tasers are safer than knives, gun, batons or even fists), or that they use the weapon when they shouldn't.
Sure, maybe their marketing claims are bogus and they have removed them. No different to anything else commercial. But tarring them with the evil brush just because they make a device you're supposed to use in self-defence and that device *might* hurt someone... what a damn shame.
