JACKSONVILLE, FL -- "The Taser C-2 is being marketed as the personal protector. For shopper Kyle Geddis, it could be just what he is looking for.
"Nowadays everyone is carrying firearms but they're not really considering another option and the Taser gives them that option," Geddis told First Coast News. "It's a great self defense mechanism."
The C-2 is smaller and can fit into the palm of your hand. It comes in pink, silver, black or blue. But in order to purchase the device, you must pass a public safety background check.
Tom Smith is the co-founder of Gander Mountain in Jacksonville. He says the C-2 provides the ultimate protection.
"By simply snapping a cartridge in the front of it, we can reach a distance up to 15 feet and it mobilizes an attacker for up to 30 seconds so you can get away from the attacker."
Chuck Mulligan is the public information officer for St. Johns County. He says that the C-2 is a good device for self-defense, but he warns that if it gets into the wrong hands, it could be used against consumers."
Duh. Lets not go there, shall we Chuckie? "Getting into the wrong hands" opens a can of worms that boggles the imagination so lets remain adults and say that most tools can cause harm if used improperly, so we don't need warning labels on silly little zappers or claw hammers either for that matter. And to wash that bad taste of your whinging away, I've included a pic of the Taser-Gals at this years Shot Show.
