    In the US, Tasers ARE available to the public.

    Where are people carrying knives for protection?

    You can buy and use a personal protection device if your state allows them.

    If you look at places that have the toughest anti-gun laws (like New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts) you'll find they are all anti-taser as well....

    ...if you take a step back and think about that for a moment, you may notice how the bigger issue isn't "public safety" after all.....but instead a conflict between the notion of "bodily defense" as an individual right (as our Founders believed) or as a State power (as our Founders sought to avoid)...

    If you're close enough to be threatened by a knife,  you're probably  too close for a Taser to work right.  It might just annoy the attacker. 

    Tasers need  a 6-10 foot distance for the leads to hit at the proper distance apart.
