  • TASERs

    In light of the recent shooting incident at the Navy sub base in CT. can anyone explain why the navy will not train and equip their police officers with TASERs ?From what I have seen every other branch of the military trains and issues TASERs to their law enforcement/security personal.

    Tasers are a TOOL, not a solution.
    Firearms are a solution.

      "GROTON, Conn. – Investigators say a man involved in a shooting at a gate outside the Navy's submarine base in Connecticut lunged at one police officer with a knife and then stabbed another in the thigh before an officer opened fire." The assailant had a potentially lethal weapon. How would deploying a less-lethal weapon have changed the outcome of that situation?

      "Federal authorities say an officer fired approximately three shots at Brunache but he was not hit by any of the rounds." Except for the new X3 model, a TASER is pretty much a one-shot deal. It's great if another officer can apply a follow-up TASER shot (or deadly force) if the first officer's TASER misses or is otherwise ineffective, but I wouldn't want to rely on an ECD when faced with a nut with a knife or other edged weapon. Getting cut or stabbed is not my idea of a good time.

        TASERs are not issued everywhere in the DoD. We have them but not enough cartridges.

              Tasers are a great tool if you are trying to actually apprehend/arrest someone. however in the middle of an assault where the suspect is armed, not so much!
