You might also think about getting an Umbrella Insurance Policy to help you pay for the legal bills you might have to settle if you "Taser" the wrong person.:)

In the UK they are sooooo illegal. my firends son has just been fined a huge amount just for having one.. I dont see the harm in them as they are a defensive deterrent rather than a weapon. A dinner fork in the wrong hand could kill etc.. I know the USA have very different laws compared to us though so im not sure of the legalities .. but i can imagine the litigation issues would be huge in the states.

I think it should be just like owning a gun. That is, only after the the owner has been trained and licensed. They can easily kill someone.

A lady in my neighborhood is going back & forth with a guy that she accidentally tasered in the nards.

She claims he was running up behind her on a jogging path at night and it scared her. He claims he was jogging, and was going to pass her. She got all worked up at just the prospect of something happening, turned around, and fried Jim & the twins. The guy is now claiming ED. Who knows.

I can not speak for all states, since each state makes its own laws. But in NY, most anything can be considered a weapon and a person can be charged with (and convicted of) "possession of a deadly weapon" for almost anything. Here's the trick. If you stab me with a fork or pen, or hit me with a baseball bat or golf club, besides being charged with assault, you can also be charged with "assault with a deadly weapon" and "possession of a deadly weapon", because you used the fork, pen, bat or club as a weapon.

So while anything can be used as a weapon and you can be charged with "possession of a deadly weapon" for almost anything, there are some things that are considered weapons whether you use them as a weapon or not and they included firearms, knives (over 4 inches in length), certain chemical sprays and certain electrical immobilizers.

So a person can only be charged with "possession of a deadly weapon" if he uses the item as weapon or if he is in possession of any of a small group of devices which are always considered weapons.

Then again, there are some states where anyone (over 18 except a convicted felon) can carry a weapon and some places where it is the law that you must carry a gun.:faint:

This is a tough one, but I don't think the general public has the knowledge of what a taser gun is capable of doing well enough to own them, even though lots of people do. I know they have killed people, so I don't think I would want to take the chance of using one on someone else. I think maybe pepper spray would be safer. I definitely wouldn't carry a gun with me!

I wish they would make a version that could be used on children that would render them silent and immobile for a few hours. It would be great to use in restaurants, movie theaters, and the like. What a great life that would be!

Men are just so touchy when it comes to their penises.

      195 weight when I went in for surgery
      199 weight when I got home for surgery
      193.2 weight 4 days after surgery
      If the inflammation from surgery is resolved, I've lost 1.8lbs in 4 days.

      Had surgery last Thursday, so I've been home for 2 days as of 15 minutes ago.  I weighed more when I got discharged than when I went in despite only having eaten a Jello cup in 2 days, but I put that down to inflammation. This morning I weighed a little less than I went in.  I sneezed last night and my fiance saw me cry for the first time, and we've been together 16 years. I took my multivitamin first thing this morning and threw up. Kept it down after drinking 4oz protein shake. Yogurt gives me diarrhea, water hurts more than the fuller liquids, and my stomach is turning somersaults and I think I'm hungry because I'm used to interpreting it that way, but I have no desire to eat.
      My biggest problem is that I am used to being busy.  I own a business and I've been getting active on these boards, and when I'm on my laptop I forget to drink. Will I hurt myself if I drink faster?  I've been scheduling 4oz every 30 minutes with breaks before and after meals.  Is it too fast to drink 4 oz in 15 min to get caught up on what I missed?

      tl:dr at bottom,
      I could use some advice. I went to see my dietician today (not a bariatric surgery dietician, I can explain why I am seeing her if you want to know). She knows I am going to have weight loss surgery as long as I hit the goal weight my insurance told me I need to be at. I have to be at the goal weight by June 24, 2023, in order for my insurance to pay for my surgery.
      I had a weigh in the doctor's office a couple of days ago and weighed 301, my scale at home said 302. However, on the same day, the scale at a friend's house said 313. 
      I knew I had this Dietician appointment two days later and I knew she would weigh me. I continued to weigh myself at home (after getting new batteries) and I was at 302 then 299 and today at home I weighed 303, right before my appointment, when I got to her office I was weighed and it said 313.
      I am concerned about what to believe since the doctor's office and my scale show similar numbers. I also bought a new scale today and it said 313. 
      The Dietician told me I needed to eat more protein, which honestly I struggle with. she said I needed 150 grams!!  I said are you kidding? that seems like a lot.  She used my weight to come up with this number. 
      Should I really be trying to eat enough protein for a 300-lb person or should I be eating protein for a goal-weight person (mine is 170)?   
      also, my clothing is loose like I lost the 20 lbs mine and the doctor's scale shows, and not 10 lbs like everyone else's scale shows. Also, I have always naturally been more muscular even when I was 120 lbs and did not eat any protein aside from what is in plants. 
      tl:dr- should I be eating enough protein to support a 300lb person or should I be eating protein for a "normal" sized person? AND should I trust the Doctors scale more so than the Dietician's scale?

        I had the same issue. My scale was 6 pounds heavier than my bariatric doctor's. My scale agreed with my nutritionist's scale. I asked my bariatric doctor to have her scale recalibrated and she said it was a really expensive scale, so she trusted it. So, when it comes down to it, the scale that matters isn't the one that's right, it's the one that determines if you get your surgery or not. I would ask her when it was last calibrated and see if she will calibrate it. The difference is I Iost weight so well on the lifestyle change diet that I had to stop losing weight or risk not getting the surgery.
