Commissioner of the RCMP Mr. Elliott has insisted that tasers ... are much safer than firearms and are not lethal per se. [LINK]
I'm getting just a bit tired of this...
Even the Commissioner of the RCMP is so completely ignorant of the state of the taser debate that he's still dragging out that rotten corpse of an argument that "tasers are much safer than firearms". This is why the civilian oversight must be put in place ASAP.
Firstly - tasers ARE firearms (in Canada). [LINK]

Now - what about not lethal per se?
See immediately-previous post...
